About the Harp Program

In 1974, with the visionary leadership of the Music Department and the support of the Superintendent, the harp program was developed. The program was established and designed to provide the high school orchestras and bands with harpists of sufficient technical and musical skills to play the harp parts that are required in full orchestral and band works.

Harps are an additional musical instrumental choice at several of our schools. Six junior highs and each of our six high schools have district harps placed at them for students to participate in the harp program. The complexity of this instrument and the added sophistication to the senses that the harp provides creates a higher level of aesthetics to the music.

The District Harp Specialist is Charles Lynch. You can contact Dr. Lynch at 480-308-7373 or by email at cwlynch@mpsaz.org
