“Ten Irish Songs” Now Available at Harp.com

This past June, I was contacted by a representative of Lyon & Healy’s music division, Harp.com, about my work in arranging music for the instrument.

In the spring of 2017, I began in earnest notating dozens of arrangements I had played at engagements over my 28-year performance career and submitting them to SheetMusicPlus.com. Some, including “Ten Irish Songs for All Harps” are also available in my personal store.

I am happy to announce that the collection of lesser-known Irish songs is now available at Harp.com in downloadable format. I have also been invited to submit additional arrangements which I hope to see there over the coming months.

Based in Chicago, Lyon & Healy has been known as the “Harpmakers to the world since 1889,” designing and building harps of all sizes, including the classic Model 23 which I play. The company also sells music, strings, and every imaginable accessory the working harpist might need.

Editing YouTube Videos is Actually Easy!

As a YouTube novice, trimming away unwanted portions of my videos proved to be a challenge.

It seemed I was on the right track by using the “Edit” button, but for some reason the edits wouldn’t save.

Then it finally occurred to me to seek out a YouTube “help” video that would hopefully explain, in simple terms, what I was doing wrong.

That video is here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rXnI0N5djxA&t=51s

It turned out that there was one small thing I hadn’t done correctly to complete the process.

I have now begun the process of editing all of my early videos for a more professional look.

That is not to say that I still do not have much to learn!
