I Expect All My Harp Students To:
- Aspire to Learn to play the harp well.
- Approach my suggestions with an open mind.
- Have at teacher-approved lever or pedal harp at home or school for daily practice as well as the required materials listed in this handbook.
- Devote ample daily practice time between lessons in addition to time spent in ensemble rehearsals in order to attempt new ways of playing.
- Make every good faith effort to attend lessons regularly.
- Listen to harp recordings of pieces they study and perform as part of their daily practice.
- Attend harp-related concerts, where the students themselves do not perform.
- Participate in performance opportunities that are mutually agreed upon by both student and teacher, to develop solo and ensemble performance skills. Performances may include: harp studio recitals, informal performances, American Harp Society events, summer harp camps or festivals, and competitions when appropriate.
- Abide by the studio policies outlined in the Handbook, updated each academic year.
