Here's what folks are saying about Dance Thru the Music:

I am having a ball with the Dance Thru the Music and Where the Fingers Fall! Three early favorites: Gander in the Pratie Hole (who knew I could actually tackle a jig??), the lovey Carrickfergus arrangement from Dance Thru the Music, and French An Dro from Where the Fingers Fall. Love ‘em!!
Kathy Krantz

I am so enjoying your arrangements of the traditional tunes. They are so very playable, even for someone like me with still limited skills. I'm not sure exactly how to explain this in words, but they are very harp-ish - that is, they take advantage of ways that a harp can sound so very beautiful even playing something very simple. Great fun! Kathleen McClatchey

I just had to drop you a note to tell you how much I'm enjoying Dance Thru the Music! I've been trying to play the harp for about 8 years (to build those neural pathways!) For whatever reason it's been a real struggle. But not long ago I pulled out this book and sat down to see if I could play any of the songs and, by golly, I found that I could play several of them passably! Thanks again, Sharon, for arranging music that those of us who struggle can enjoy playing. Noreen Ward, Elkhart, Indiana

I am amazed, I can really play these tunes! Jenny Swanson, Oregon

Sharon's new book for beginners is full of lovely arrangements that are much more interesting than the usual beginning fare, including some extended harmonies and interesting rhythms. I'm not a beginner myself, but I very much enjoyed just reading through the book for my own pleasure. Anyway, I'd buy the book just for the beautiful cover, like all her covers. Kathy Chanik, Virginia

I received your new book this past week, and it is really delightful! I love the cover - it is so colorful and interesting,
and goes so well with your previous books. Congratulations and Job Well Done! Beth Kolle, Washington
