Apart from taking students/pupils to concerts (preCovid) & lending them CDs, how do you introduce your younger harpists to, say, on Youtube, more advanced repertoire and orchestral works so that they have some idea of where they might be heading ? I often want to but am torn between staying on topic in a lesson with beginners/intermediates, whilst wanting to avoid overwhelming them with too much music which is beyond them and I have no idea how much extra awareness of say orchestral works they get at home and school. All I remember is that school life, parents and teachers introduced me to a certain amount of music(not all harp by any means) & genres but left a lot unqualified & I’ve discovered and journeyed so much further as an adult, wishing I’d had that insight at an earlier age. Sure I had a few harpist LP’s but it was a long time before I heard these pieces again in live performances or studied them myself.
