FAQ, Booking and General Policy

A typical pedal harp weighs between 80 to 90 pounds while a lever harp generally weighs lighter. Often times a pedal harp needs to be transported using larger vehicles while a lever harp is smaller and fits most cars. However, a full-size harp has musical benefits, creating a richer sound and can play most classical pieces.

Yes, a harp can be amplified using a harp pick-up that is attached to the harp. It can also be amplified using a microphone, however, there is a possibility of feedback. We recommend using a harp pick-up instead of a microphone for better quality sound.

A harp and piano sheet music are fairly similar. You can play piano sheet music on the harp but there you can tweak it a little to suit the harp. There are differences on how the music is read but most of the time a piano piece can be played on the harp.

Although a harp is a classical instrument, it can be suited to play both modern and contemporary music. The music piece can be arranged for the harp to play current music. However, the music will still have a distinct harp sound that is light, airy, and ethereal. We have the best harpist in Los Angeles who plays Disney tunes, pop and other genres.

Excellent harpist!My wife and I are so happy that we chose Jackie, the harpist, to play the cocktail hour at our wedding. She is incredibly talented, with a very large musical repertoire, and added so much elegance to our event. I also happen to be a professional musician, with very high standards for music. Margie, the owner, was such a pleasure to work with as well. Trust me, they are the best!
