Are you a harp student between the ages of 8 and 26? Are you looking for a way to become a better harpist, meet new friends, study with great teachers, and have an amazing harp ensemble experience this summer? You've come to the right place!
New in 2014, we're adding the YAHS Preparatory Division for lever and pedal harpists ages 8–17. We're excited to welcome YAHS alumni Kristi Shade and her Duo Scorpio partner Kathryn Andrews to lead this new program designed for beginning harpists. No audition is required. Stay tuned for complete registration details, coming soon.
We are so excited to announce our 2014 Guest Artist, Skaila Kanga!

Skaila will be in residence during week one of YAHS to give masterclasses, workshops, and intensive harp ensemble coachings for all students. She will also be available for private lessons.
