"A year ago, at age 64, my daughter-in-law gave me my autoharp. It had been collecting dust in her attic. I've put in countless hours acquiring the body memory to be able to close my eyes, put my ear near the strings and play this beautiful instrument. I'm a full-time RVer and this is the perfect portable instrument for around the campfire." --C.B.M.

"I have arthritis and the joints in my hands are quite damaged. Autoharp allowed me to play music again, without having to rely on others to accompany me. As a singer this has been very freeing. And now I can be part of the band instead of all alone up front." --L.H.D.
