Tout est dans le titre : exercices bien conçus, selon une progression bien dosée. Excellent, comme tout ce que propose Deborah Friou. Vraiment parfait pour acquérir une technique solide (et de façon plutôt plaisante en outre) et bien délier les doigts !
J'ai commandé ce manuel pour m'entraîner sur la harpe, les exercices sont très bien et contrairement à certains autres manuels il n'est pas trop répétitif, plusieurs exercices différents proposés. Au niveau de la qualité, aucun problème, reçu dans une enveloppe en carton.
I am a beginner and I have found that the exercises in this book are clearly and progressively designed. They are also fun to do so I have to use a timer so I don't spend too little time on the pieces I am supposed to learn. I am progressing much faster now. I highly recommend this book of exercises. I have taken up the harp now that I have retired and am thoroughly enjoying my new hobby.
I am a beginner and I have only been playing for the last two months. However, this book has exercises that I can do and it helped me with my lessons. I can not comment on the advance portion since I am not at that level but the books looks like it has very advanced moves (that can be broken down for beginners). I would recommend this book to anyone who is beginning to play since it will help you with your lessons, see what is expected of advance playing and give you lots of challenges. Six months later and I continue using this book to use with my lesson. Teacher says I am almost at a first year level. This books helps you learn how to practice, the new techniques that you are going to learn in songs and build confidence. Recommend it.
This book is on my shelf of amazing training books for harp. I use this for my harp students a lot. The pacing is great and there are even songs in between major lessons that uses skills learned in previous lessons.
These exercises are fantastic for building up technique. As a beginner harp student, I find technique, i.e. hand and finger positions, most challenging, especially because it is different from piano or violin, even though I play those comfortably now. These finger pattern exercises, and the intermittent solo pieces are challenging, yet appropriate for my level, and I find them quite helpful to practice them. It isn't the best for a beginner because it covers a full range, but for someone past the first level, these exercises would be helpful.
Excellent and clearly laid out ... and also frustrating and surprisingly difficult -- which is pretty much exactly what you want in a book full of musical exercises. This is the sort of challenging stuff you need to know, the mastery of which will annoy and test you ... but well, you wanted to play the thing, so get to work. :-)
