Student Education Sessions Purpose: “Student Education Sessions” are a two‐part program for all levels of harp students. The focus is on the improvement that can be made by participating in both sessions. On the first day, participants will play two selections of music representing differing styles (if possible) and receive constructive comments and suggestions from the adjudicator. A theory worksheet guideline will also be given to each student to take home and be completed with the assistance of the teacher. The worksheet must be returned in the second session in order for the student to receive the final certificate. In the second session, participants show their improvement by playing the same two pieces of music in a recital setting. Participants who attend both sessions will receive a handsome “Certificate of Participation” from the American Harp Society.
