Program includes: jazz, world music, improvisation, classical, contemporary, Baroque, chamber music, pedagogy, orchestra, solo, experimental.
Although no ‘harp minor’ is offered, students at CalArts receive an opportunity to take “minor” lessons outside of their major. Minor lessons are 30 minutes weekly and offer a chance to either continue perfecting an instrument you already play or to explore trying a new instrument.
Harp-centered majors include BFA and MFA in Harp Performance, and the unique to CalARTS majors such as Performer/Composer and MAP (Musical Arts/Experimental Pop) programs.
Also offered: Writing for Harp with co-teachers Anne LeBaron and Alison Bjorkedal.
- CalArts features a room dedicated to multi-media installations called the “Wave Cave”. Pictured here is composer Pierre Mariaca’s 2019 project that featured a harp, looping pedals, fishing wire, and extended techniques. Visitors to the wave cave interacted with the harp, plus visual projections (not pictured).
