There can be little to replace the one-to-one relationship between teacher and pupil, but this hugely popular introductory tutor to the small harp, first published in 1989, is widely seen as the first and best beginners guide to the instrument, and is often supplied with newly built harps by several of the most renowned instrument makers.
The Small Harp Tutor was written by Alison Kinnaird MBE, one of the foremost exponents of traditional Scottish harp music, who has been researching the repertoire of the harp in Scotland for more than twenty-five years, recorded several critically acclaimed albums, written several books of harp music, and co-authored the first published history of the harp in Scotland.
