Weddings and Events
As a performer, I enjoy working with my clients to customize my services to best meet their needs.
My repertoire includes a wide selection of classical, popular, and folk music, and I am happy to accept special requests. I can help you select music to personalize your event to reflect your unique style, and I have many examples of programs to provide ideas and inspiration. I provide a personal consultation with all wedding performances, and consultations can also be arranged for other performances.

As a harp teacher, it is my goal to encourage, support, and develop my students' musical talents and interests. I believe this is best accomplished through individual attention, and I tailor my program to match each student's background and needs. My curriculum includes private harp lessons as well as opportunities to participate in a variety of events, including regular harp recitals, our annual holiday concert, theory classes, master classes, guest harpist performances, harp ensembles, and the London Royal School of Music exams.
I have found great joy in the harp, and I look forward to the opportunity to share the delights of this beautiful instrument with you.
