    Writing for Harp Tutorial - by Assoc. Prof. Felice Pomeranz

    While visiting with Berklee last month, I was reading "Berklee Today" and was fascinated by an article on Writing for Harp by Felice Pomeranz.
    The harp has gained a great deal of popularity lately and there has been an interest in learning to write for this instrument of angels.
    Felice is an Associate Proffesor at Berklee College of Music where she teaches harp. She is also the owner of the Guilded Harps, a harpist's network. Here is the article

    For those who want more information about the harp, Terry Dwyer wrote an excellent tutorial about "Using the Harps in GPO"

    Thank you Felice and Berklee Today allowing us to provide this valuable information for GPO users!

    In addition to these, there is also an excellent book dedicated to the subject:

    Scoring for Harp, by Stanley Chaloupka

    This subject reminds me of a time when I used a harp tuning grid in some orchestrations I did for a movie. During the scoring session, the composer (not an orchestra type of fellow), saw the tuning grid on my score and asked, "What the hell is that?".
