I am currently accepting new students to my harp studio in Ajax.  I have an encouraging and supportive personality with eight years of professional teaching experience and over fifteen years of performance experience.

I teach students on both lever harp and pedal harp, and have several harps available for rental.

My harp students include:

  • Children (8 years and up), teens, and adults
  • Complete beginners with no musical training
  • Harp beginners who play another instrument
  • Adults who want a nurturing environment to return to playing after a break
  • Students who want to play for their own enjoyment
  • Those wanting to follow a structured curriculum
  • Harpists preparing for auditions or specific performances
  • And people who have simply “always wanted to play the harp”!

My students have won awards and scholarships in festivals, earned high marks on Royal Conservatory of Music examinations, been invited to perform at significant events, and hold RCM Gold Medals awarded annually for the highest mark in a particular grade level of harp in Ontario.

A little bit about me:

I hold a Master of Music degree from the University of Toronto, where I studied under world-renowned harpist Judy Loman, and a Bachelor of Music degree from Wilfrid Laurier University.  I perform regularly throughout the Durham region, Toronto, the GTA, and across Ontario.  Besides teaching and performing, I am the vice-president of the Toronto Chapter of the American Harp Society, a Registered Music Teacher with the ORMTA/CFMTA and a member of the Toronto Musicians’ Association and the PineRidge Arts Council. I am also an alumna of the National Youth Orchestra of Canada. 

Please contact me for further details.
