In addition to being a professional musician, I love sharing my knowledge of the harp through working as a teacher and coach. I have studied and played with some of the best orchestral and solo harpists in the world, as well as deeply explored the mastery of performance anxiety and the physicality of harp playing with specialists around the country. I have a lot to share with my students! I maintain a private teaching studio in the West University neighborhood of Houston, as well as teaching in Rice University’s Non-Major Program.
Contact me today to set up a trial lesson to see if working with me would be a good fit for you or your child.
my teaching philosophy
I have been fortunate to have studied with teachers who have nurtured and inspired me as a musician and person. I seek to do the same for my own students by exhibiting the values of hard work and self-discipline, both of which are essential to the development of technical skill and musicianship on any instrument.
I strive to cultivate technical expertise, correct posture, self-motivation, and sound practice habits in my students. My training is in the Salzedo technique, which gives students a strong foundation from which to express their musical ideas.
Who do I teach?
It is my goal to help my students of all ages reach new levels of musical fulfillment. Whether you are continuing your studies on the harp, coming back to it after time away, or completely new to the instrument, I would love to share my knowledge and experience with you to help you reach your goals. My only requirement is that my students are motivated and eager to learn and excel.
