Musical Instruments

Handcrafted Lyres and Kinder-harps made individually in Pennsylvania, USA.


The modern lyre is an instrument created to serve the development of tonal awareness and a healing quality of sound suited to the high possibilities and needs of our times.


Tir-anna lyres are made in a wide variety of sizes ranging from a student diatonic model of  15 strings through to our Alto Tenor Lyre of 44 strings. Each instrument is made to the highest standard and using the finest materials. The Tir-anna kinder-harp is perfectly suited to the delicate unfolding of tonal awareness in the young child.
