Award-winning harpist from Switzerland offering inspiring, structured harp lessons for all levels

Methodology

I believe that every student is different and needs different content and strategies to help them progress and teach their full potential. In a typical lesson I incorporate many different aspects of playing such sound production, technique, rhythm, repertoire, sight reading, music theory, improvising, exercises and so on. My aim is for the student to not only progress but also enjoy their musical journey, so choice of repertoire is something we would always discuss together for example.


Originally from Switzerland and having done all my university education in the UK I am equally at ease to teach in French and English.

Background

I am a recent graduate of the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, Bmus Hons First class degree and MMus Distinction.
I have won many prizes in the UK and abroad, have performed throughout Europe. I have learnt from the best harpists and with more than six years of private teaching experience I would be more than happy to pass on the knowledge and tradition of harp playing to you.
