my name is Anja, I’m 20 years old and I’m from Germany. I live right now in the U.S. as an
EduCare with a hostfamily. That means I’m allowed to take a few classes in the morning
and in the afternoon I have to take care of a child. I’m taking of course some music classes
– including harp. Although I’ve been playing the harp only for 2.5 years I’m pretty
advanced, because I’ve been playing the piano for ten years. So my dream is to study harp
and maybe even in the U.S. My harp teacher told me, she would take me right away, but
there is no full scholarship. That means I have to go home next year in March, because I’m
not able to pay the tuition at the university, which is too bad, because I found such a good
teacher. So can anyone help me and tell me if there is any chance for me to get a full
scholarship at a good music school in the U.S.? And by the way I’m learning the french
Maybe someone can also help me with another question. Since I probable can’t get a
scholarship here I have to go back to Germany next year and I’ll try to get in a university.
But since I just started to play the harp 2.5 years ago and I’m already in the U.S since a
year I don’t really know which schools are good in Germany – or which teachers. I didn’t
have the best harp teacher in Germany and I don’t really have connections into the “harp
wold” in Germany. The only names I know are Helga Storck in Munich and Xavier de
Maistre in Hamburg.
I hope someone can answer at least one of my questions.
