Hi. I am a beginning harpist and my mom is a little worried about
the long term advantages. Does anyone know of collages that offer
harp scolarships? Any of them Christian? Just curious. Thanks!
There are quite a few Christian Colleges with harp instruction. To name a few, Gordon College near Boston, Luther College in Iowa, Augsburg College and Macalester College in Minneapolis, Eastern University or Villanova near Philadelphia, Manhattan(ville) College in New York, Marymount Manhattan College in New York. If they don’t offer it, it doesn’t mean you can’t arrange for lessons with a teacher. Lots of schools have scholarships, especially Ball State in Indiana. It should help you as an enrichment with any school application. But you need to study with a very good teacher and work hard, and learn a lot of good pieces. A Christian school isn’t the only place where you’ll get a good Religion department.
Louise, in the 1970’s there were far too many violinists, flutists, and pianists applying for admission and scholarships to my alma mater, and few harpists. The head of the admissions and scholarship committee asked me (a volunteer helping each Spring with auditions in my west coast city) to telephone him collect, if I knew of a high school junior or senior competent harpist interested in applying, as some scholarships for that instrument were unused. The school? Eastman, in upstate New York.
