About You

What are your preferred pronouns?
This year, to conserve practice room space, and ease harp moving to ensembles and classes, we will be using a new communal harp rental system. This means that students will not be assigned a rental instrument in a 1:1 fashion, rather each student will have access to a number of harps for practice and performance.
Please note: If you are driving, you should plan to bring your own harp. Rental harps in our harp pool system are limited and priority is given to international students and others flying to Prep. We know that driving with a harp can be difficult, but everyone is in the same situation. If extra harps become available, we will offer them to drivers. Please check here if you are interested.
If you intend on using the pool system, please just write that.

Music Information and Background

Please choose an option to describe your music reading skills. Be honest in your assessment as this will help us get to know you better.
