The contemporary double-strung harp has fascinated harp players and listeners since its inception in 1989. The instrument’s ability to overlap melody and harmony in the same range, as well as its characteristic “echo” effect, makes it a natural outlet for musical creativity. Some harpers and harpists have learned its secrets through instinct and experimentation—but many potential players still ask: “How do you play that thing?”

Make Mine a Double is the first beginning-level method available for contemporary double-strung harp. In this book, Cynthia Shelhart, a double-strung harp specialist since 1992, identifies the musical techniques you need to play this unique instrument. Make Mine a Double provides exercises, etudes, arrangements and resources for your journey to double-strung enjoyment and success.
