HarpHands

Repertoire

I’m classically trained, but I can play a lot more than just your average Beethoven. I really dig playing music people don’t expect to hear on the harp!

All the following sound awesome on the instrument!

  • Classical
  • Irish
  • Rock
  • Alternative
  • Folk
  • Indie
  • Electronic
  • Jazz
  • Heavy Metal
  • Country

I so far haven’t been very successful with interpreting gangster rap on the harp, but maybe one day! Maybe.

Here’s my current Repertoire list:
