About Me

I'm a professionally trained and qualified harpist.

I'm also an experienced harp, cello and musicianship teacher.

-  Batchelor of Music (Harp Performance) and Associate of Music with Distinction (Harp Performance), up to AMusA (Cello Performance)

- Guest Principal Harpist for over 10 different orchestras around Australia and New Zealand, such as New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Canberra Symphony Orchestra, Australian Youth Orchestra and Australian International Symphony Orchestra

- I have been playing the harp professionally for 10 years. I absolutely love performing on the harp, and I am always learning new repertoire to keep my playing the best it can be! I love to keep up to date with new and popular music, and I quite often make my own arrangements of them for harp. 

- Teaching music is a major passion of mine, and I spend a lot of time sharing my knowledge of harp, cello and musicianship in my private teaching studio in Hornsby, Sydney.

My Harp

I perform on this Lyon & Healy Style 85 Concert Grand Pedal Harp.

It is one of the best sounding harps of its make in Australia, having a rich, mellow tone that is consistently resonant throughout its whole range. 
My harp is a natural light wood colour, with a simple modern column design. It has extended soundboard, hand-painted with exquisite gold curling flower and vine patterns.

It's a stunner.
