Helping your student prepare for YAHS

To fully benefit from their intensive harp study at the Young Artist’s Harp Seminar, students are expected to come prepared with the following materials:

  • Two recital pieces ready to perform (Memorization of recital pieces is strongly encouraged but not mandatory)
  • At least one additional solo piece in-progress
  • Two prepared orchestral excerpts
  • At least one additional solo piece in-progress
  • Preparation of harp ensemble music. (A comprehensive list of music to purchase and part assignments will be sent well in advance of the seminar.)
  • etudes (optional)

We appreciate your support in helping your student meet these preparation goals. Please contact us if you have any questions about these preparation requirements.
