Downloading Sheet Music

Why download harp music?

Harp Music Downloads are sheet music documents that you can download to your computer and print at your convenience. These downloads are great when you are in a hurry and don't want to wait or pay for shipping. When you buy a piece from us and download it to your computer, you can simply print out the pages as you need them. Never worry again if you will get your music in time! And because we don't print or ship the music, we can offer these pieces to you for less. Everyone wins!

I paid for my music. Now how do I download it?

There are two ways to download your purchase. By clicking the "Return to ARS Musica" button on the Paypal payment confirmation page, you will be instantly directed to a clickable link for your download. If you prefer to download later, the confirmation email sent to your email address has the download link in it as well.

Can I see a sample page?

You can see the first line of every piece of music we offer before you buy it. The theory and ear training materials aren't previewed on the site,

What do I need to view my harp music downloads?

All music files are in PDF format, requiring Adobe Reader. If you don't have it, you can download the Adobe Reader for free from the Adobe website.

How can I buy harp music downloads?

Look through the solo and ensemble sheet music to find the piece you want to buy. On the piece's description page, look for the "Buy Now" button or the "Add to Cart" button for the download. You can either buy the piece separately or add it to your shopping cart. Our payments are processed through PayPal, so you can be assured of security and convenience. You do not need a PayPal account to purchase from us. Any credit or debit card PayPal accepts will work.

What do the difficulty levels mean?

Most of these pieces were arranged or written for my students, so I have assigned the levels as I found them to coordinate with my teaching.
Beginner - very simple, no complex rhythms, basic fingerings, simple chords
Easy - suitable for any first year student, although the arrangements often sound more sophisticated.
Intermediate - requires a more comfortable knowledge of the harp. Technically more advanced, with more technical dexterity and musical understanding needed.
+ (plus sign) - a plus sign after any difficulty level means that it is a little more challenging
