Do you need high heels to play the harp? – Coffee Break Harp 8

with No Comments

You might have heard that high heels shoes can help you to manage pedal changes better… but you are wondering if this means that you won’t be able to play the harp well when wearing flats?

Or you find it difficult to keep your heel on the ground while changing the pedals and are wondering if high heels would help?

Or perhaps you play a harp which doesn’t have any pedals and you wonder if you should be bothered at all with what shoes do you wear?

You’ll find the answers to these and other harp-and-shoe-related questions in this episode!
