Take a look at this.
This is my friend Eve. When she wanted to start taking music lessons, her mom decided that the harp was cooler than the piano. Thus, she has this incredible skill. Keep in mind she's only 16.
This is the thing I never did. Especially when I think of that scene from In the Good Old Summertime, when Judy Garland sells the only harp in the music store and claims that anyone can learn how to play it.
