… music is everyone’s joy!
The Veeh-Harfe is a string-plucked instrument that can be played without knowledge of notes. A simple and clear notation was specially developed for the instrument – reduced to the essentials. Note stencils, which are pushed between the strings and the sound box, enable playing “from sight” – the notes become tangible.
The idea is obvious, but the Veeh-Harfe has nothing to do with a fairy tale. The story of the Veeh-Harfe begins in the middle of real life.
The farmer Hermann Veeh was looking for a musical instrument for his son Andreas, who was born with Down syndrome. Andreas was born with a love for music, but learning to play a musical instrument seemed unattainable. The memory of old string-plucked instruments with note stencils gave the decisive impetus.
The basic principle of these instruments has been taken further. Based on the skills of his son, Hermann Veeh designed a completely new musical instrument – easy to use, appealing in shape and enchanting in sound.
A wonderful world opened up for Andreas and many other people. The dream of people with different talents and abilities making music together became a reality.
For children, the Veeh-Harfe is the first formative approach to making music. Adults feel a deep longing for music when they play the harp. The Veeh-Harfe enlivens house music, sets new impulses in music education, in kindergartens and schools, supplements therapy in clinics and enriches everyday life in senior citizens’ facilities.
