Color My World Series© – Songs of Hope and Inspiration – Full Kit (includes pouch and prompter)
The Color My World© Series offers beautiful melodies for the harp beginner. This program is specifically designed for support groups, community groups, health-care facilities and teen programs while at the same time it can augment the Rainbow of SoundTM program for schools and adult/senior groups.
It is the new extension of the Rainbow of SoundTM program. In each set, there are approx. 15 easy melodies (see the melodies of the Love and Beauty collection below) with fingerings and letter names on cards that can be attached to a pillar prompter on the column. There are also chord charts on the reverse side enabling players of all levels to make music together.
Hope, as Emily Dickinson wrote, “is the thing with feathers – that perches in the soul.” It is the one thing that remains in Pandora’s box after the evils have fled. Hope lifts us; coupled with inspiration, it helps us to transcend our troubles. The songs included in Songs of Hope and Inspiration remind us that we are not alone, that others have walked similar roads, and that light can be found even in the darkest places. These melodies are designed to be effective in lifting the spirits of any harp circle support group or the individual playing these tunes in their own sanctuary of their music room.
