I have recently begun my college search more seriously (I’ll be a senior in the fall) and am quickly realizing that it is a lot more difficult than I thought it would be! I have played pedal harp for several years and would love to continue doing so in college. However, I am unsure of my career goals at the present time, so I would like to keep my options open in undergrad. Ideally, I would love to add harp as a second major, but I am wondering how feasible that might be. (I know that music majors require extra time for practice, rehearsals, etc.) I am also interested in the possibility of minoring in music, but I didn’t know what the disadvantages of this might be if I decided that I did want to pursue harp as a career in the future.
If anyone has any thoughts on these things or any other tips to share, they would be much appreciated! 🙂
