Information for teachers

Thank you for encouraging your student to attend the YAHS Preparatory Division. The Preparatory Division is open to harpists age 8–17 at beginning to intermediate skill levels, and no audition is required. However, we’d like to know more about your student and ask that you please submit the online teacher recommendation form below no later than March 15.

Please be assured that our goal is to help students grow as musicians and performers by supplementing the technical and musical instruction provided by their home teacher. We work personally with each student to ensure that the instruction they receive at YAHS will enhance their present course of study. If you have any questions at all about the YAHS program and how your student would fit in, please don’t hesitate to contact a faculty member. If you have any other students you feel would benefit from this experience, we hope you will encourage them to apply as well.
