This beautiful lyre gives a clear, light-filled sound, carried by the tone quality of the craftsmanship. Suitable for little lyre players from age 5 years onwards. Comes with a tuning key and stringing information sheet. The 7 stringed Celestial Lyre is tuned in a pentatonic scale which allow the fingers to move freely over the strings, always producing a harmonious tune. This scale spans over five whole tone steps and is built up by an open fifth tuning. This character often gives rise to a descending musical motive, one could say it is a descending scale. This can often be noticed in folk music from different parts of the world where this scale is used.
The Auris Children's Lyre arose out of the striving to harmonise movement and melody with the child's sense of sound. When holding it in the left hand the lower strings are closer to the body. Deep tones and descending melodies are created by the inward movement of the hand towards the body. Ascending melodies are created by the outward movement of the hand. There are both left and right-handed versions of this lyre.
Handcrafted in Sweden from Maplewood.
Dimensions: 38cm x 17cm
