    Hallo,

    I’m looking for informations about harp studying after the MA in Harp Performance degree.

    I’m especially interested in teachers and schools focused on classical contemporary music.

    Feel free to suggest every teacher/ academy/ university in world you’re thinkking about.

    Thanks!

    Hi Beatrice,

    You may want to look into Northwestern University. Liz Cifani, principal harp of the Lyric Opera, teaches there and focuses mainly on contemporary music. There is quite a bit of contemporary music in Chiago as well, and you may find it a fertile place for collaboration.

    Probably way too late, but I would suggest Ernestine Stoop, http://www.ernestinestoop.nl,

    Besides that, the Royal Conservatory is well-known for its composition department with a.o. Louis Andriessen as teacher. This year, Heiner Goebbels will have his festival at this institute. Composers like Messiaen, Cage, Kagel, Ligeti, Kurt��g and Reich visited The Hague extensively in such festivals.

    Susan Jolles at Manhattan School of Music is expert in contemporary music, as is Sara Cutler, a superb harpist who is on the faculty of Brooklyn College, both with post-graduate programs. California Institute of the Arts specializes in that kind of music, and Susan Allen is on the faculty. There is also a lot of activity in Boston, where you could study with Ann Pilot or other teachers. You will find almost any university has contemporary music composing and performing ensembles.
