I am a dedicated, enthusiastic, and experienced teacher, trained in harp pedagogy as well as performance psychology. I am comfortable with all ages and levels of experience, including those that don't yet know how to read music. I teach using the Suzuki Method, and was formally trained to teach this method by its creator, Mary Kay Waddington.

Learning the harp has been one of my life's most sincere joys, and giving that to others is what I am most passionate about.
A little more about me:
I have studied harp for over 16 years, performing in concert halls as well as private events since the age of 7. I am a senior in the BYU Harp Performance program, and have performed in many prestigious university events, including the Homecoming Spectacular, numerous dinners for the university presidency, and KBYU-FM broadcast of the BYU Philharmonic. I have also competed at the national level.
Over the years, my mentors have included University of Utah professor Dr. Cathy Clayton, Orchestra at Temple Square harpist Julie Gaisford Keyes, University of Arizona professor Dr. Carrol Maclaughlin, and BYU professor and Juilliard graduate Dr. Nicole Brady. I have also participated in workshops and master classes with such renowned harpists as Emmanuel Ceysson of the Opera National de Paris, Louise Vickerman of the Utah Symphony, Sarah Bullen of the Chicago Symphony, Lynne Aspnes of the University of Michigan, and Milda Agazarian of the University of Moscow.
