This beautiful Pentatonic Children's Harp is has been handcrafted in Sweden of solid maple wood and was designed by a Waldorf music specialist and maker of fine instruments.

His goal in designing this instrument was to create a pentatonic harp with a bright, clear tone enhanced by the tone of the maple.

Commonly used in Waldorf education, the pentatonic harp (also known as a kinderharp or lyre) is an ideal instrument for accompanying singing and stories with young children. Because every note is in harmony, there is no such thing as a wrong note, and when the harp is tuned properly, every note will sound beautiful. No musical experience or reading ability necessary!

It can be played by a parent or teacher for a child (wonderful to play at rest time or bedtime!), or gently and carefully played by children over three. We recommend that adults model playing the harp before giving it to a child to play, and supervising its use with children three and under.

This instrument is tuned in the seven-tone pentatonic scale: d’-e’-g’-a’-h’-d’’-e’’

Unlike some pentatonic lyres, this model has been designed with an opening large enough to allow it to be played with both hands simultaneously.

If you are inexperienced with tuning a stringed instrument, we recommend the use of an electronic tuner. The video below determines how to tune your harp.
