Couldn't resist posting this angelic-looking little player obviously enjoying the drama!

Definitely good! Studiously keeping her thumbs up. Well done her.

Random piece of trivia, angels didn't take up the harp until around the 16th century. Before that, they tended to play trumpets.

Thank you! I didn't know that. That's really made my day! :)

Skaila Kanga's easy compositions are brilliant. I've got Minstrel's Gallery which is aimed at roughly beginner to G2 level. Mixture of sweet melodious pieces, ragtime style and those spooky tunes which sound complicated but are achieved through clever lever/pedal settings. Lots of scope for playing around with them.

Anyone familiar with her other collections?
