Hi! I’m a junior in HS and I am planning on majoring in harp
performance in college. But I am not sure what the best Salzedo
school would be to attend. If you have any suggestions, please let me
Some good schools with Salzedo-style teachers are the Cleveland Institute of Music (Yolanda Kondonasis is the instructor), Oberlin Conservatory (Kondonasis), Rice University (Paula Page is the Instructor), and the New England Conservatory of Music (Anne Hobson-Pilot is the instructor). I’m sure there are others but these come to mind right away and are some of the best. Who is your teacher, and do they have any recommendations for you?

IUSB, St Mary’s and Valparaiso are very good schools and they have an excelent teacher(MRs Davids). I went to visit them this summer and i feel there not only good in harp but in other academic subjects as well.
It’d be fun to see you there next year!
You should also consider Ball State University of Indiana, Prof. Elizabeth Richter, University of Rhode Island, Joan Ceo; Vassar College, Dewey Owens; Faye Seeman in Chicago, many teachers in Michigan, Karen Gottlieb in San Francisco, University of Washington, Pamela Vokolek; University of Texas, Delaine Fedson; and so many more.
