Teaching harp is my true pride and joy. For the past 25 years, it has been an honour to teach students from ages 7-70, passing along a love and joy of music at my home studio in the Niagara Region. Virtual lessons are also available to students around the world.
I tailor lessons to meet each student’s goals, learning styles, and wishes. I balance visual, kinesthetic, and audio learning styles, as well as various techniques for practicing and reading music, giving you a solid background knowledge with technique, theory, and musical interpretation. As a university-trained harpist in performance music, I also have degrees in education and social work.
Wanting to master harp, or perform on harp at events? I am happy to help you achieve your goals. Some students wish to play harp for relaxation, rather than performance. If you prefer to play harp for relaxation and mindfulness, I will create lessons just for you, focusing on sound-shaping, breathing, and techniques to guide a relaxed position for full overtones.
My life has been immersed in teaching music. I have given private lessons in harp and piano, taught music in elementary schools, conducted children’s choirs, and been a harp instructor at the Niagara Symphony Music Camp.
Lessons can include all or a chosen combination of the following:
Sound-shaping, relaxation, mindfulness
Musical exploration (for young children)
