My Birthday Present

As many of you know - I'm a music person. I love instruments and as a music teacher I have to play a bit on all of them!!(recorder, flute, bass, drums, keyboards, guitar and xylophone!!!)
But first and foremost I teach singing, choir and play the piano.
Wonderful! She earns a living at what she loves best - You all must be saying to your computer screens - but not so. Having to play piano from 3-5 hours a day can get tiring! When I get home I can hardly drag my sorry behind to the piano to practice, or to my guitar or hubby's bass for that matter!! I needed a change and a change is what I'm getting!! I've always wanted to play the harp. I love Celtic music - probably because I never get the chance to play it - so hubby has bought me a harp from a shop in London!! We ordered it as a kit so hubby can assemble it for me- which makes it even more wonderful!!!Being a piano player I'm sure I'll be able to play the harp - so I'm so thrilled!
Here is a picture of the 22 stringed harp - I'm getting the 33 stringed version!
