I strive to teach ergonomic, pain-free playing. My desire is that none of my students develop injuries from learning harp. This is critical because I personally know how painful, disappointing, and disastrous an injury incurred at a musical instrument can be. Pain-free playing requires the cooperation of both student and teacher, and students will be expected to pay careful attention to their posture, hand positioning, and other facets of bodily wellness while learning harp. Students must notify me immediately when they experience any pain while playing harp.

My mission as a teacher is to equip you with all the tools you need to become a mature harpist and to help you accomplish your harp goals. These goals vary from student to student, but I honor each one. If your desire is become a professional musician, wonderful! Or if you’d rather just learn to play for your family and friends, fantastic! Or if you want to spread the joy of music and harp to those in nursing homes and hospitals, great! All goals are worthy and are respected in my studio.
