There’s one in Ohio that looks like it’ll be good:
You might really enjoy Susie Allen’s Summer Harp Course.
Check out the website and see if it might be a good ‘fit’ for you.
OH…I should have mentioned, it is a two week residential course in a gorgeous part of CA.
The Midwest Harp Festival, in Oklahoma is excellent. (Summer 2009)
