Harp Lessons Amsterdam
Before the world changed lessons were almost always in person and they were in a specific location which was typically in my studio. This has all changed. Virtual (online) lessons allow the student to be on their own instrument and in their own environment. There is no commute and weather conditions have no impact.
Most of my teaching is now done virtually online. In person lessons are still important for certain aspects of teaching however virtual / online teaching has many benefits for the student. I invite you to watch the introductory video and contact me for an initial discussion and lesson.
Be anywhere - Location is unlimited
Since I have offered virtual lessons students have come to me from Europe, United States and Asia. Location is no longer the limiting factor. Lessons can be at home, school, cottage or while travelling. Time zone situations can be accommodated. I have locations in Canada and Europe and spend time in each location.
Lessons are in English or French.

I am an accomplished performer, recording artist and teacher however I do not limit myself to working with advanced performers. Everyone begins somewhere no matter where they finish.
For those interested in advancing themselves on the instrument it is important to start out with strong technique and musicality as correcting later can be difficult and time consuming. My expertise in French and hybrid technique is highly regarded.
I have started many students that have gone on to become accomplished performers.
Over my career I have continually expanded my repertoire by performance and recording.
My solo recordings have received a JUNO award nomination and my exceptional critical acclaim.
If you are preparing for an exam, audition, competition, performance, or recording I can develop a program for you.
I have extensive experience in:
- Chamber performance with numerous instruments and ensemble formats
- Vocal soloists
- Choral programs - A Ceremony of Carols - Britten and Dancing Day - Rutter among others
- Solo harp - with numerous programs - solo recording in French, Italian, and Canadian repertoire
- Orchestral - excerpts and concertos
- Technique strengthening - French technique and hybrid
Lessons with your ensemble partner or group is now facilitated by the virtual format.
Coaching of duo or ensemble can have logistical challenges that virtual format alleviates.
I can work with you on repertoire selection or programming options.
In person lessons have historically employed verbal feedback.
With the virtual format there are new options including:
- Video feedback on specific technique items
Sharing video and audio file between myself and the student
- Highlighted markings on music via transfer
Reinforcement of lesson details
- Virtual concerts
I have regular group virtual concerts with my students
