    I am a junior in high school and am looking at colleges with harp
    teachers.

    Dear Molly, I teach at Furman University, a liberal arts college in Greenville, SC. Keith Lockhart, Boston Pops conductor, graduated there in 1981 and returns regularly to present seminars. Furman offers orchestra, chamber music, chorus and band if you wish, as well as a challenging academic environment.
    My undergraduate training was at Furman with Marjorie Tyre, a wonderful Salzedo protegee. My graduate work was at Yale with Gloria Agostini, one of Grandjany’s cherished pupils, and I studied after Yale at London’s Royal College of Music with Marisa Robles.
    Choosing a teacher is a great joy. Having an introductory lesson is often helpful.

    Molly, I applaud your decision to double major in math and music! I think it is a wonderful combination! I’m going to try to tackle physics and music myself. It’s a challenge, but it keeps your education well rounded and also broadens your horizons. I wish you the best of luck!
