If there is a school you really want to go to and a good harp teacher nearby, you might ask the school if they’d be willing to start a harp program just for you. I was asked to teach an incoming student at Imaculata College, in Pennsylvania, this fall. They didn’t have a harp program in place, but the school went out of their way to find her a teacher and they are even renting a harp just for her. Don’t rule out a school just because they don’t currently have a program. You may be able to start something.
Furman in S.C. has a solid music program, and the harp teacher Anita Burroughs-Price is warm, friendly, and an enthusiastic and dedicated teacher; she has a Master’s in Harp Performance from Yale, studied with Marisa Robles in London at the Royal College of Music,
