What do participants say about HCA Summer Camp?

These teachers are just fabulous, down to earth, joyful, energetic and so positive! The variety of classes, suitable for everyone from beginner to advanced, included valuable tips and instruction in all genres. They all gave us a wealth of knowledge in each of their specialty classes. I am still in total amazement and awe, that I actually participated in this great harp camp and met so many amazing people too!

—Dana

“[HCA Summer Camp] reaffirmed that I am not the only one experiencing the harp challenges I have! And it gave me a new thought for my old line,’This is too hard!’ Nothing is hard, only new!”

—Carol

“HCA [Summer Camp] was an amazing experience. It gave me the opportunity to learn a lot of different things from amazing world-class faculty. It really opens your eyes, gives you a new perspective towards the harp and music, and it is also very motivating and inspiring.”

—Maria

“This was a wonderful experience! It was great to have a week of excellent harp education (and fun) in my home—no travel expenses, harp rental, etc. I so appreciate that everything was recorded—I can review classes and watch ones that I missed. The instructors were excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed it!”

—Joyce

All the classes we inspirational, and for me they offered a wonderful reminder of technique, how to play the harp and the issues harpists deal with. Though all of them were exactly in sync with how I teach, it was a treat to hear the many ways concepts can be expressed and verbalized what they were teaching. I look forward to seeing the classes that I missed. I also enjoyed seeing harpists on the participant list that I’d not connected with in years. And, I thought the informal Zoom aspect was really a delight. I truly brought together the harp community.
