    Hello
    My name is Carlos ,i?m from Costa Rica, i?m 17 and i have studying
    Harp for seven years now, i have a problem, the situation is that
    here in my country is very expensive to buy a harp, we are eleven
    students in the national music institute(there are 4 harps in the
    institute and we can only study there) and i believe we have a pretty
    good techniche and a very good teacher who studied in Israel,
    my problem is that i?m frustrated by the fact that is almost
    impossible to get a harp in this country, if any of you know of a
    place were we can be help please send me information, and if any of
    you know about other good teachers, please send me information
    because i really want to get in contact with other teachers and maybe
    get a scholarship to study some where else and become a better
    harpist and musician.Thank You for your help.

    Carlos, i have no answer but just a name. Contact Jonathan Cascante in San Jose, Costa Rica who has also been trying to obtain a harp- he is an accomplished harpist and composer. It would seem that if all of you share ideas some good result might come.

    You should audition for American schools, especially the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, or Temple University. You may find it easier to get a harp once you’re here. Some schools have enough harps for the students to use. I know a harpist named Adan Vazquez who was from the Dominican Republic. He went to school here and was able to buy a harp eventually. I may be able to teach you through some schools.

    HI!
    Maybe you really need to go to another country to get a scholarship and study maybe in USA, or what do you think of Germany? We have very good teachers. I hope to hear from you. Christina
