The Rocky Mountain Springs Harp Program strives to supplement the education of young harpists through intensive summer programs which treat each harpist as a whole person, with teachers who act as mentors and friends.
Training in harp technique, musicianship and performance is enhanced by program elements designed to improve mental attitudes and abilities, physical health and conditioning, aesthetic appreciation, and connections between music and other disciplines.

This camp is perfect for:
active students who want to be inspired to play music in a friendly, non-competitive setting
Students come back year after year for our camp's:
chamber music experiences, to meet new and old friends, beautiful setting
In addition to focusing on technique and taking care of our bodies as musicians, working with other musicians is an important part of the program.

We are optimistically planning for 2021 summer sessions in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. If public health concerns prevent us from meeting in person, we will offer online opportunities. All interested students are encouraged to apply through our free application!
