"My students come in all shapes and sizes, with different types of prior knowledge, different life experiences and different expectations about their musical education. I don't teach in a standard format in which everyone has to fit into the same frame, but I do expect students to work hard and make good progress, join in with our harp events, come to concerts, see other harpists playing, try new harps, and really see how much fun our music world is!"
