Harps are hired out per year. Please ensure that harp is out of direct sunlight and away from radiators When transporting the harp, ensure all keys are down as harps have a very high tension and this adds to the pressure It is important that the harp is well protected in a cover when it is being carried Every harp has a tuning key please tune harp regularly When putting in a new string, the string may slip out of tune for a while. This is normal and with constant tuning and practice will settle.

It is recommended that, where possible, harps are brought to lessons.
