About Me

I began my harp studies through private instruction in both Calgary and Edmonton. Upon completion of my studies at the University of Alberta, I went on to pursue advanced studies in harp performance at the University of Arizona. Under the instruction of Dr. McLaughlin, I specialized in harp performance involving a diversity of musical styles, techniques and musical arrangements.

Since graduating from the University of Arizona School of Music with a Master’s Degree in Harp Performance I have performed extensively in and around Calgary at a wide range of events such as wedding ceremonies, receptions, anniversaries, corporate events and Christmas Parties.

I play on a full-size, classical pedal harp allowing for a broad range of musical styles. My repertoire includes classical, popular, contemporary and Celtic music as well as many of my own arrangements.

The Instrument

Classical 47 string pedal harp.

Beautiful, rich and uniquely elegant sound.
