The Music Education Sessions (also known as Music Ed 'Auditions & Evaluations', or A&E) are coordinated by Linda-Rose Hembreiker (2nd VP and Education Chair), and are held annually on a Sunday in February and at Sunday in March. In 2012, these occurred on February 26 and March 25. They were held in the beautiful chapel of the First Baptist Church in Pasadena, an intimate venue with wonderful acoustics.

Harp students of all ages and all levels are encouraged to participate (especially beginners and intermediates). 

Students play for an Advisor (guest harp teacher) and get his or her suggestions at the first session, and return at the second session to show the progress they’ve made.

This is a master-class type setting (all the participants get to see each others’ performances and interactions with the teacher).  It often gives students a fresh perspective and new inspiration to get suggestions from someone other than their regular teacher, as well as to see and hear other students’ performances and suggestions from the Advisor.  The $25 fee per student covers both sessions (February and March). 

Student participants must be members of AHS-LA. Click here for membership information.
