Lesson Details

I teach harp with a solid foundation in technique, learning to read music and ergonomic hand and body position. I currently study Music Education at Kennesaw State University, where I study with Elisabeth Remy Johnson, principal harp of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. I have a background in Irish and Scottish folk music, as well as classical pedal harp. Lessons include the option of learning Celtic folk tunes integrated into classical technique training. I have a passion for encouraging creativity and teach arrangement techniques as well as basic music theory.
