“YAHS has prepared me to become a better harpist in so many ways, from mock orchestra auditions to hours of ensemble experience. Being surrounded with incredible peers, teachers, and guest artists for two weeks gave me the chance to better notice technique and learn to play with more confidence. The activities are always amazing, and it’s a great way to make life-long friends. Plus, Kenyon college is beautiful, and exciting!

“My favorite musical memory at YAHS was the masterclass with Nancy Allen. She has been one of the harpists I have looked up to since I began playing and it was an honor to play for her. With it being the first masterclass I have played at, I was very nervous but she was very helpful and full of ideas to help me bring out my abilities.”

“My favorite part of YAHS was the variety of performance opportunities. I enjoyed the numerous different types of performance experiences from masterclasses to audition preparation and everything in between. YAHS is perfect for developing essential performance skills as a harpist.”
