Pedal and Lever Harp Arrangements by Sharon Watson
Private harp / piano / organ lessons offered in Fishers, Indiana
Sharon Watson is a gifted arranger of music for harp and harp ensemble. Her arrangements are rich and full and written comfortably for the harp as only a harpist could do. The arrangements absolutely work and have stood the test of time. She knows the right harmonies and the right styles. We have used her arrangements for years and highly recommend them.

For the past ten years I have enjoyed using Sharon's creative arrangements of Bach, Handel, Christmas music, and others with my harp ensembles and Summer Harp Workshops. These are a valuable addition to our repertory. ----

Sharon's arrangements are beautiful, tasteful and fit the harpist's hands perfectly. They are enjoyable for performers and audiences alike. The Ball State University Harp Ensemble has performed many of them over the years, always with great success. I can highly recommend Sharon's music to anyone looking for high quality editions for harp solo or ensemble.

This book (Opera Music for Solo Harp) never stops amazing. The arrangements are full, non repetitive, extremely melodic, and chordal for easy reading. There are many pieces in the book, so it allows for a large amount of time to be filled. The time will just roll by as you will be enchanted by the melodies. - Printed in Spring 2009 Newsletter ----

I just wanted to reiterate how delighted I have been with the many pieces I have ordered from you both for solo harp and harp trio! I do not know of a better source of of lovely harp arrangements. I do not know what we did before we found out you, especially since we started playing at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington D.C. Keep up the good work

Sharon has been a big help to me in the past when I had a flute/cello/harp trio. She was a Godsend for finding music to use. I am thrilled she has gone online and that her music will be available for download.I'll be sure to pass the info on to my students as well.

Sherry's lever arrangements are nice supplemental pieces to use as stepping stones between levels for students - Original arrangements are creatively written and are great to increase repertoire.
