Harp Department Chair
Elzbieta Szmyt, Director
The Harp program is open to students ages 6-18 with no previous musical training, though 1-2 years of piano and a sense of humor are highly recommended. An interview is necessary prior to acceptance in the program. Harp students receive one private lesson each week, participate in weekly master classes, and perform in a class recital at the end of each semester. The program is directed by Associate Professor of Music Elzbieta Szmyt, who creates an inspiring atmosphere of friendship and support. Students must rent or own their own instrument, as the school can provide only limited access to school harps.
