Color My World Series© – Songs of Strength and Courage

Color My World Series© - Songs of Strength and Courage

Specifically designed for support groups, community groups, health-care facilities and teen programs.


The Color My World© Series offers beautiful melodies for the harp beginner, the Therapeutic Harp Practitioner, and the Facilitator of Community Music-Making Harp Circles.  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. 20 easy melodies with fingerings and letter names on cards that can be attached to a pillar prompter on the column of the harp. There are also chord charts on the reverse side enabling players of all levels to make music together.

Color My World with Harp - Strength and Courage

In difficult times, we search for what makes us strong, for what gives us the will to keep on going even in the face of adversity. Music can stir us to action. It can remind us of the courage within ourselves, lifting the spirits and clearing the mind. The songs included in Songs of Strength and Courage bring out the lion-like nature in us all. These songs are especially beneficial for those in rehabilitation centers. Designed to increase positive energy and get the fingers and feet tapping, these songs are effective for enlivening and emboldening any harp circle support group.

“Behold the turtle. He only makes progress when he sticks his neck out.”
