The New Music Educational Project My Ancient Harp Basic Knowledge



Basic tuning of the Ancient Harp


The Ancient Harp has its own basic tune: A – B – C (sharp)
The purpose of these signs is to form a sequence of sounds with which we can accompany many songs and pieces. It is important to emphasize that this tuning is not obligatory and may be altered according to the subject matter. For example, in Chinese/Japanese music it is recommended to tune at intervals of quart + major second (the intervals are always from the low string and upward)
You can see only a part of this page; the shareware pages.

The full contents of the program [including all the sound files, music, notes, arrangements and video clips] are available for registered schools, music programs and teachers.

We are inviting you to register and activate the program at your place.

The programs are for: Schools, music course, music projects, summer camps and for You :-)

It is to said, that every teacher can transpose the Ancient Harp tuning to any tone his class may feel comfortable In this case, guitar teachers may use a guitar's Capo for an easier playing. Nevertheless I am strongly recommending to use the original tuning: A-B-C, therefore all this Ancient Harp method referring to A-B-C. It is also match the related program: My Ancient Guitar as it also tuned as: A-B-C + D.
