"I love to share the joy of music with my students. I have been playing harp for 32 years and studied classically through the college level. I have been trained in both the French and Salzedo methods. I believe music should be joyful and my desire as a teacher is to pass on a love for music and for the harp. My main goal with students is to discover their own personal goals and help them achieve them. I explore how each student learns best and teach to their particular learning style."
