They each have a unique way of playing the lap heart and the beautiful music they play has a soothing and calming effect.

The other perk of the unique lap harp is that it also gives the students a break from their work which helps them to focus and stay interested.

We were happy to hear that even though each student plays the healing harp differently, the music is always pleasing to students and staff alike.
