Pedal Exercises for Harp
With seven pedals and three positions for each pedal, how many possible combinations are there? An overwhelming number! In this book of forty pedal exercises, you'll find an incremental and logical approach to tackling pedals. Each exercise is written to drill a highly specific aspect of changing pedals, including moving individual pedals, moving two pedals simultaneously, moving pedals in opposite directions, moving pedals from flat to sharp, and using the left foot on the E pedal. In addition, such deliberate focus on the pedals improves your ability to make each pedal change quiet and efficient.
