    I am a young harpist looking at Universities. What college would you recommend to someone who wanted to study Harp at a University with excellent academics? I would like to study with someone who teaches Granjany-style technique.

    My recommendation is for the Eastman School of Music, at the University of Rochester, in Rochester NY. Not only has the U 0f R several Nobel prize winners on its faculty, but Eastman School has Kathleen Bride, excellent teacher of Grandjany harp technique. There is a summer harp program for those who want a short introduction to serious harp study after high school; first class dormitory and dining facilities; wonderful Sibley Music Library connected to the School.

    Carnegie-Mellon would be another, and New York University as well.

    You didn’t make it clear that you intend to major in harp. (although you did imply that) At a lot of schools you can only study with the harp instructor if you are a major. Just something to consider.

    I attend a small college in Michigan called Oakland University, where my teacher
    Kerstin Allvin teaches Grandjany-style technique. She studied with Susann Mcdonald and a few others in France. It’s a pretty good school academic wise also.

    You could also consider the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore MD. Dr. Ruth K. Inglefield who is wonderful and was a student of Grandjany. There is also a double degree with John’s Hopkins available.
