Harp's Desire

Harp Practitioner ♥ Performance ♥ Instruction

PREPARE FOR SPRING

Although the weather is cold, the days are already getting longer. Think about the ambiance of a Valentine's Day party, or a romantic dinner for two with live harp background music.

PLANNING A WEDDING?
Live harp music at your ceremony, cocktail hour, or reception offers elegance and a personal touch; music that is deeply meaningful to you can make your special day uniquely memorable.

DE-STRESS FOR HEALTHIER LIVING

De-stress at the office, at conferences, or at business meetings with a harp break. Soothing music can reduce tension and make your corporate functions something to be looked forward to. Contact us for corporate packages.

HARP AND REIKI
If you're a performer with anxiety issues about appearing in public or rehearsing, come to Marlene's workshop on performance anxiety at the Somerset Folk Harp Festival in July 2005. She will show you how to zero in on the issues that cause you the most difficulty, and demonstrate techniques to dissipate that anxiety and make performing the joyous experience that it should be. Private Reiki sessions will also be available at the Festival. Marlene is a certified Reiki practitioner and advanced Master candidate.

HARP AND MASSAGE GO TOGETHER NATURALLY

If massage improves your well-being, think how much more effective it can be with live harp music to enhance the experience.

SPA PARTIES ARE IDEAL OPPORTUNITIES

If you're having a spa party, add live harp music to the mix for an extra therapeutic touch! It's affordable and very soothing, for the ultimate experience in relaxation.

ELEGANCE COUNTS

Add that special touch to parties and gatherings. Harp music at cocktail parties and formal dinners lends elegance and ambience. Popular music, Broadway themes, and festive tunes can add warmth to cold-weather parties, summon up thoughts of spring, and make your "do" the best of the season.

PAMPER YOUR GUESTS

The sound of harp music graced the courts of kings in ancient times. Feel like royalty yourself with harp music to make your occasion memorable.

Whether it's traditional Irish or Celtic music, '40s hits, swing music, blues, jazz, Broadway hits, classical, or pop, the harp has a voice all its own that can make any occasion memorable.

Marlene Satter and her harp are available to perform for all sorts of occasions.

SOOTHE YOUR SPIRIT

The music of the harp is very comforting, and can bring solace to those who have suffered a loss. Her training at the bedside at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital in Hamilton, NJ has made Marlene sensitive to the needs of those who wish to remember a loved one at a wake, funeral, or a memorial service. She can also offer Reiki to patients or family members.
