Hello friendly harpists! I am putting together a studio class for my college age students about how to play weddings. They will each be playing a standard wedding piece and we will talk about contracts, bridal consultations, etc. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to email me a copy of their contract (kansasharpist at gmail dot com) so that I could have several different ones to show them. Also, do you have any suggestions of harpist’s websites that are really good. I would like them to see a variety of possibilities.
I read this article about the decline of the symphony orchestra and how music majors need to be more versatile and I am trying to be sure my students are prepared. The only thing I would add to this list is a class about taxes. I think that is one of my biggest challenges being a freelance musician!
