I have had interactions with Ms. Lepke-Sims over a number of years and in varying circumstances. Barb is a full-time... professional harpist with stunning credentials. She is familiar with all venues where she could play and can offer advice in planning music for a wedding, memorial service, holiday or church program.More recently, Ms. Lepke-Sims has expanded her love of music to the study, research and performance of live therapeutic music. She is happy to consult/mentor people who play acoustic instruments and would like expand their musical gifts to bring a sense of calm and well-being to patients in need.Barb is a kind, loving person who wishes to share her musical gifts with others. She is easy to talk to and will help you in any way she can.read more

Barbara played at our daughters' wedding in Aspen Colorado on top of Ajax mountain in September 2015. Working with... Barbara was seamless from the initial contact through the entire planning process. She orchestrated getting her harp up the gondola to the top of the mountain without any assistance from us. The placement of the harp on the wedding deck was perfect so that when the ceremony began we were greeted with beautiful harp music. During the ceremony inclement weather moved in so we have to move everyone inside. Barbara was able to transition her harp inside the clubhouse and continued playing her lovely tunes so that we could finish the ceremony. The guests were awed and hardly noticed the interruption. We could not have been more thankful to Barbara for her professionalism and talent which assured the wedding was perfect. We look back on the pictures now with only positive memories. Thank you Barbara.read more

We were fortunate enough to have Barb be a part of our wedding day at Della Terra as our harpist! From the initial... planning stages, to her willingness to play our requested song choices/style, to her amazing talent, we cannot say enough great things about her and the music she plays! Everything about her music is beautiful and it added such a special and unique feature to our ceremony. We had many guests comment on how much they loved the harpist and the music! We would highly recommend Barb as a harpist!read more

Barb has played wonderfully for church services where I have directed music. On Easter Sunday, when we have 70 singers... and instrumentalists, the congregation expresses the greatest gratitude for Barb's presence and playing. She plays beautiful solos, and she can play from orchestral scores or lead sheets. During the middle of a service we sometimes need an extra 1 - 5 minutes of music. I indicate to Barb the amount of time needed, then sit back and enjoy her playing. We also use Barb's recordings for meditation music during Penance Services. Finally, Barb truly possesses and radiates the heart of Christ. Both her presence and her playing has brought peace, healing and joy to our congregation, and I am certain to all those she has played for in her ministry. I am grateful and humbled to be amongst those who have been blessed by her ministry of music. Ron Seggerman, Denverread more

Barbara's Therapeutic Music
Solo Harp CD

Music for the Heart...from the Heart

Soothing Melodies to Comfort Your Soul

56 minutes of calm, relaxing, solo harp music

 

For the Heart

Each composition's rhythm conforms with a resting adult's heart beat, approximately 60 beats per minute, thus allowing the listener to easily and gently flow toward a calm and restful state.

 

Because of the emphasis placed on the resting heart rate, these songs are appropriate for:

  • Complementary interventions including acupuncture and massage
  • Breathing
  • Meditation
  • Relaxation

 

From the Heart

"Each of these beautiful melodies has helped soothe and comfort my heart. May your soul be soothed and comforted as well when you listen to them." - Barbara

"Thank you so much for the beautiful harp CD. It is so comforting! I keep it in my car and when I play it, I am filled with peace. It is truly amazing how it works. I can have lots of stuff going on in my mind, and I put the CD in and it melts away."

"Music for the Heart... from the Heart is fast becoming my favorite treatment room music. My patients call it beautiful, peaceful, and soothing. I call it reliable. The pure sound of the harp unadorned with angelic voices or waterfalls...and not a jarring note or break in it.

The gentle melodies are calm and consistent, and I'm content to listen all day. Thank you Barbara!"

- Fran Maher, Licensed Acupuncturist, New Jersey

"The music is so beautiful. I have used it several times as an adjunct to the migraine treatments I am using. It is the right rhythm and tone for someone with migraines. I find your music to be very therapeutic and I now equate the CD with relaxing in general.

One of the difficulties about migraine treatments is that it must be combined with relaxation techniques to be effective. That is hard to do, but with the CD, I am instantly in relaxation mode and can let the meds work."
