Having just done a review for the Harpologie Series by Sabien Canton in the the latest UKHA magazine, I've just found a nice video trailer online.
The video is in German, but it does the job!
Harpologie, and Harpolgie 2 are extremely useful books for anyone teaching beginner to intermediate level harp. Each book comes with a play-along CD, which is quite a rarity for beginner harp students. What makes these books invaluable as teaching aids is the fact that not only are the pieces themselves well thought out and structured from a harp playing point of view, but the quality of the compositions and the production values of the backing tracks are exceptional. Witty and fun accompaniments which manage to lift the spirits of both student and teacher! The first book is aimed at the beginner (2nd finger only) to approximately grade 2 standard. The second book is approximately grade 2 to 4 standard. The play-along tracks come in several versions for each piece. Some have a half (studio) tempo, and then a full speed version. I have found these books useful to use in lieu of sight-reading at the end of a lesson. Although aimed at the early levels, they are especially good for anyone who struggles with sightreading up to grade 5 level. Originally published in Dutch, the books have been translated into various European languages. My books are in French and the CD is in Dutch, but nonetheless these 2 books are always my most used books in my teaching bag. I ordered my copies very simply and quickly through Le Magasin de la Harpe . Highly recommended.
