Watercolor on White

I composed Watercolor on White with my first harp, a little black Harpsicle with no levers. As a beginner at the time, I was looking for music that I could manage technically, but could also enjoy musically.

The watercolor inspiration is two-fold. I have always enjoyed listening for color in music, even to a point where it becomes a source of creative imagery. Secondly, I was thinking back to a wonderful experience I had learning watercolor painting. For me, this collection celebrates the challenges and joys of being an adult learner.

The collection is called Watercolor on White because the pieces can be played using only white keys on the piano. I thought that having no levers on my harp was a limitation, but I was delighted to watch these seven unique pieces evolve as I celebrated making music on my simple little lap harp.

Watercolor on White includes the following seven original solos: Cadmium Orange, Cerulean Blue, Alizarin Crimson, Viridian Green, Rose Madder, Cobalt Turquoise, and Winsor Violet.

Content: 18 pages; 7 original solos
Instrument: suitable for 26-string harp or larger, no levers required
Level: Late Elementary
