Pedal Sliders Harp Books
As a teacher, Amanda has found that more of her students were asking to learn popular music and jazz. Pedalsliders Books is the teamwork of Amanda and Tony Robinson who met whilst studying together on the MA Jazz course in Cardiff.
Pedalsliders books are available from all good harp stockists and online here.
These books have been written with the intention of making jazz fun and accessible for harpists. Improvising is not necessarily part of classical training and these books allow harpists to try out something new – playing in a jazz style – while also encouraging a move towards the freedoms of improvisatory music.
