Welcome to Connecticut Valley Harp Intensive Summer Camp

Connecticut Valley Harp Intensive offers a summer program unique to lever and pedal harpists between the ages of 12 and 20.* The CVHI program requires them to select between a solo, ensemble-based or combined track to follow during their week on the scenic campus of the Ethel Walker School in Simsbury, Connecticut. While every participant takes the necessary courses in rhythm, sight-reading and technique, each harpist will have courses specific to his or her selected track which will allow deeper focus, more practice time, theme-based Master Classes and performances, and an intensive approach to either ensemble or solo playing.

*Over 20 or under 12? Contact us about our day camp options.

The high quality of instruction and personal approach of each one of our instructors is what makes a stay at CVHI such a special and inspirational learning experience.  Our instructors are not only seasoned professionals but passionate teachers with a vast knowledge of orchestral excerpts, ensemble skills, and solo repertoire. At CVHI we work as a team to help you achieve the goals you set out before you get to camp, whether you wish to improve your sight-reading, learn how to play ensemble, or master a challenging piece of music.
