These books are intended to supply the beginning harpist with the material needed for the first one to two years of study by a student who has had no prior musical training. The material has been carefully graded and may be adapted as well to the student with prior musical training by simply moving at a faster pace. The book may also be used for self-teaching.

The inclusion of detailed explanations of each technique, as well as new theoretical material, should greatly aid the teacher by reducing the time required for explanation to each student. It is important to remember that any discipline presented in an early lesson should be adhered to in subsequent lessons.
