AHS Coaching and Evaluation program

The West Coast Harp Society will be participating in the American Harp Society's Auditions and Evaluations program online.

We have chosen the dates Sunday, April 18 and Sunday, May 16. We are delighted that Sharlene Wallace has agreed to be the coach/advisor! We have not yet set the times. This is not a competition; it's a friendly, constructive environment designed to help people along in their harp journey.  Each student will have 15 minutes total to play a short piece, or part of a piece, and receive coaching. Then, a month later we do it all again to check on the progress!

Because of limited space, we will only accept one or two students from each teacher's studio as space allows. 

Teachers whose students are participating must be national members of the American Harp Society. Participants must be members of the West Coast Harp Society.  If you are interested in playing, please speak to your teacher - and if you do not have a teacher, please email Elizabeth Volpé Bligh <evolpebligh@gmail.com>  Elizabeth will be accepting registrations according to available space and will send a link for payment to those who are playing.  The cost is $50 plus your membership. Those who paid for the Harp Day last fall are already members! (If you are unsure if your membership is up to date, you can email Marilyn Rummel at marilyn@harpcanada.com)

The target demographic for this is: beginners, early intermediates and adult students. 

If you want to be an observer, register on this page. If you want to participate as a player, please contact evolpebligh@gmail.com
