- Do you have a personal message for students?

Learning the harp is intensive work and helps develop not only your musicianship skill but your cognitive, maths, memory capacity, organisational skills, listening and many more. But most importantly it is fun! Music lessons are an hour of the week you can achieve and enjoy yourself. It is an amazing feeling being able to create emotions through music and not only make others around you happy but be happy with yourself. Every little step in music is a brilliant achievement and no matter what level you are you should give music a go. It is never too late to learn. The harp is a brilliant instrument as it is so versatile you can learn folk, classical, jazz, pop etc. It is also a fantastic way to learn harmony and ambidexterity. I am a teacher that helps you not only improve and learn but also guide you with the sorts of music that you will enjoy too.

I also offer support towards further education choices and help students achieve their goals regarding musical studies or alternative ambitions.

Background

I have been teaching privately for 8 years from beginners to experienced players. I have extensive experience in a variety of musical genres, particularly in Classical and Folk. I specialise in Pedal, Folk and Electric Harp. I have played with many Orchestras, Ensembles and Chamber groups in around Birmingham and West Sussex. With these groups I have toured around the British Isles and Europe. 
Previously I have enjoyed recording sound tracks for films, CDs with the International Harp Ensemble and most recently Charity Christmas CDs with my Flute and Harp Duo.
 I enjoy conducting masterclasses as a volunteer in Hospitals around Birmingham and Hospices around the south. I teach music theory and harp privately around Birmingham. Over the last 6 years I have also enjoyed playing harp music for Weddings, Charity Events, Christenings, Corporate Events, Funerals and Parties.
