    Hi all- does anyone know if any of the University of California campuses offer classes/majors/minors in harp?

    They used to, I think. I think a few of them may do so now. I can recommend highly Karen Thielen, who teaches at San Jose State University. Is Redlands a UC campus? I think if you were at the major campuses, there would be a teacher available in the area, if not on faculty.

    There are programs at UCLA (although with limited space), UC Davis, and UC Irvine.

    Hi Brianna,

    You might check to see if The Master’s College in Santa Clarita still offers harp.

    About 25 years ago, I studied harp with Joy Hujsak at UC San Diego, while minoring in music there. She was a really good match for me. I would check with each campus, to see who’s teaching now.

    Lou Anne Neill teaches at UCLA and she is a very warm person!

    Lou Anne Neill is my teacher at UCLA right now. She’s the principle harpist for the LA Phil, and she’s wonderful to work with. She usually doesn’t accept grad students because she loves to start students off on their feet, but that doesn’t mean that she wouldn’t offer admission to someone she felt really deserved it. There is no harp minor here at UCLA, only a major. UC San Diego also has a harp program.
