I am a harpist at heart since the day I set my eyes on this angelic instrument at the age of 12. Every sound made is immediately comforting and soothing. My experience ranges from teaching children and adults of all backgrounds. I founded Harp4all Music Conservatory and have regular harp ensemble practices and recitals. I teach from several method books including Harp Olympics and Fun From the First. My teachers include Susan McDonald, Elizabeth Richter, Ellie Choate. Susan McDonald has strongly influenced my teaching style and performance.

My teaching emphasizes the development of a healthy, sustainable technique that enables students to express themselves musically with superior tone quality, rhythmic integrity, and sensitive musicality. I strive to cultivate strong discipline, self-motivation, and confidence in each student as a musician and overall individual. Lessons include instruction on harp technique, history, music theory, musician wellness, and musicianship, and each student experiences a personalized approach that is tailored to their particular goals and progress.

I'm a professional harpist who graduated from Yale University with a B.A. in Music with extensive teaching experience in the United States and Belgium. I am offering harp lessons to students of all backgrounds, levels, and ages.
I am currently in the process of completing my Doctor of Musical Arts at the CUNY Graduate Center. I hope to transfer the skills and knowledge I have obtained from working with some of the most renowned harpists to my own students.
Teaching is a passion for me. Whether you are just taking lessons for fun, or whether you are serious about creating a future professional career, I will be equally attentive to your needs. I like to ensure that my students progress during the lesson, but not at the expense of having fun! I believe that a relaxed atmosphere is essential to the learning experience.
Lessons are customized to each student with an emphasis on developing individual expression, strong technique, and a complete musicianship.
Want to learn the harp "differently"? Come to me! :)
I have been playing harp for 20 years, studied classical music for 10 years and then started exploring other styles like Jazz, Pop, World Music, Mediterranean Music,... by studying, traveling, meeting new people.
I like to approach the harp "differently".
For beginners, we will start, of course, with the basics of the technique, we will develop the ear, start learning some great and fun rhythmical tunes and new styles on the harp :)
For more advanced harpists, we will explore different styles, develop the rhythm on the harp, improvise, learn different jazz standards, try arrangements of known pieces (you can request anything), and even include singing if you wish :)
Here are some highlights of my biography
- Graduated from Berklee College of Music in Boston (2017) and Valencia - Spain (2015).
-Created a new Master Class program for harpists (Harp Jazz, Modern Harp), performed in Poland and Colombia.
- The Voice France (2012)
I graduated from the Music Academy International (Nancy) in voice and from Berklee College of Music (Boston) in harp where I performed in many different settings and styles of music (Jazz, Pop, Mediterranean music, Middle Eastern music, Latin music,...). I was also part of "The Voice" France in 2012 where I made it to the top 20. Additionally, I traveled a lot and performed in many different festivals around the world where I also gave master classes about the Harp Jazz & Modern Harp.
I had been classically trained as a harpist for 10 years and have dedicated 10 other years of my life to "evolving" the function of the harp in music. I incorporate the harp in various styles of music outside of the classical tradition. I perform original compositions and covers th
I teach harp students of all different ages and experience levels.
With beginners, we will start, of course, by learning the foundation of the technique as well as developing the ear and the rhythm. We will start learning different styles of music using excellent and very fun exercices and tunes.
With more advanced harpists, we will be able to explore different styles of music more deeply, develop the rhythm on the harp, improvise, learn different jazz standards, try arrangements of known pieces (you can request anything you like), and even include singing if you wish :)
I love to teach the harp "differently" to open more horizons.
I love to teach while having fun! I always listen to the individual needs of my students and try to create the best environment for them. I want them to feel confortable and therefore be ready to learn and share in the best conditions.
