As we celebrate our fifth year, we are pleased to announce the addition of the Harp Academy.  This branch of the summer harp programs at Montclair State University is for ages 13-17 and is geared towards a player with more experience (Intermediate to Advanced).  Harp Academy hours will run 10:30-4:30 and there are 3-day and 5-day options.  Students will have a 1/2 hour lesson each day they are signed up.

Harp Camp will continue to focus on students who might be newer to the harp (Advanced Beginner to Intermediate) and will include ages 8-12.  Harp Camp has a 5-day option only and the hours are 8:30-3:30 each day.  Students will have one 1-hour lesson during the week.
