Teaching

Learning to play the harp is a very rewarding experience. As with any instrument, the harp requires patience and practice to master, but the beautiful sound of the harp makes the journey worthwhile! No prior musical training is required, and harp rentals are available. I have over 30 years of teaching experience ranging from very young children to aspiring professionals to adult beginners. Throughout the years I have taught in Suzuki classes for children, prepared young harpists for conservatory study, and been a faculty member of University of Virginia, University of Richmond and Virginia Commonwealth University. Most recently I have traveled the country presenting master classes including seminars at University of Michigan, Arizona State University, and Peabody Conservatory Preparatory Division.

Students of all levels and ages are welcome in my studio. I have studio locations in both the West End and Southside Richmond.
