I believe in a positive learning environment to help each student achieve their personal best. I believe in starting with a strong technical foundation and good posture to prevent injury. I use the Salzedo harp method, but I borrow from other techniques when appropriate. I want my students to have a good understanding of music theory, the historical context of their repertoire, and how to practice effectively. Above all else, I believe learning and playing music should be fun! In addition to classical and folk music, I am also very interested in pop music and soundtracks and have a Youtube channel of my arrangements and covers. I am quite happy to go in whatever direction the student feels most passionate about!
