Helping your student prepare for YAHS

  • 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 orchestral excerpt 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.)

We appreciate your support in helping your student meet these preparation goals. Please contact us if you have any questions about these preparation requirements. For examples of the kind of solo pieces and orchestral excerpts students play at YAHS, please see the YAHS music requirements.
