The harp, in its early form, is second only to the flute as the oldest known human musical instrument. The Radio Curious theme music this week is played by professional harpist and harp teacher Jessica Schaeffer, our guest in this edition of Radio Curious. Intrigued by the harp when she saw it at a piano lesson when she was four years old, she began her formal training to play the harp when she was ten. Jessica Schaeffer holds a bachelor’s degree in the study of the harp and a Master’s Degree in music; she plays in symphony orchestras and teaches the instrument she loves. We visited in the studios of Radio Curious where she brought her harp, played for us and told stories, on December 3, 2012.
Jessica Schaeffer's website is jessicaschaeffer.com. The book she recommends is “The Power of Now,” by Eckhart Tolle.
