Delivery Charges
Saturday 2 April 2022
With Royal Mail's new prices from Saturday 2nd April I have REDUCED all my UK delivery charges in some cases only by a few pence but "Small Parcels" & "Medium Parcels" are now a lot cheaper. For example a Second Class Medium Parcel with a weight of 2.5kg drops from £9.50 to £7.00 and that rate now covers parcels up to 10Kg. Nearly all International rates, except for large parcels to World Zone 1 have also been reduced. Click here for further information
Coronavirus Updates

Twelve Preludes

Bonnie Shaljean
One of the primary purposes of Twelve Preludes is the development of strong technique, and they are intended to serve as etudes while at the same time being rewarding artistically as performance repertoire. My further aim is to make them playable on the Celtic harp as well as the pedal harp so they are accessible to a wider range of harpists. Bonnie Shaljean Click cover for contents

A Harper's Yuletide

Karen Marshalsay
These are some of my favourite tunes to play over the Yuletide season, alongside some new ones of my own and a couple that I found in older collections while putting this book together. I’ve arranged some of them in sets as I play them but they all also work well as individual pieces. The book is suitable for elementary to advanced players. In some pieces less experienced players might wish to only play the first time through the tune and repeat that rather than going on to the more advanced sections, and sometimes I have written a separate simpler version.
