More About My Harp Lessons
I can think of nothing that I enjoy more than teaching people of all ages to play the harp. I especially love teaching adult beginners with limited or mixed previous musical experience who need a friendly and encouraging advocate as they pursue their dreams.
I believe in empowering students to create their own music right from the beginning, and my teaching reflects that belief. With an emphasis on ear-training and improvisation, as well as practical harp technique, my students explore a variety of genres, from classical and Celtic to contemporary and jazz.
I fell in love with the Celtic harp in 1999. I studied extensively with Rachel Starr Ellins and have taken workshops with Christina Tourin, Kim Robertson, Alfredo Rolando Ortiz and Sharlene Wallace. Besides teaching, I find great joy in making music with many friends and combinations of instruments. I play in Lumina Celtic Harp and Flute Duo and I am a Certified Therapeutic Harp Practitioner. My other musical endeavors include singing, piano, and arranging and composing.

What If I Don’t Live in Denver?
While nothing beats having a dedicated local teacher, harp teachers are still somewhat hard to find, especially if you live in a rural area. These days, that’s no longer an obstacle, as you can take harp lessons online via Skype! If you’re interested, you can read more about my Skype teaching here!
