Child harps or child lyres are wooden instruments that are tuned to the pentatonic scale. Notes in the pentatonic scale are in harmony with each other, making pentatonic child harps the perfect first instrument. Tiny hands and adults who have little music experience can both easily play beautiful music. The child's harp is especially soothing to the young child as it produces very gentle tone. The beautiful sound makes the child harp ideal for rest and bedtimes.
