Virtual Harp Lessons
Learning in your own environment
Before the world changed lessons were 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 or travel and 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 teaching has many benefits for the student.
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.
Lessons are in English or French.

I am an accomplished performer, recording artist and teacher however I do not limit myself to working with the advanced. 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.
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. I have extensive experience in:
- Chamber performance with numerous instruments and ensemble formats
- Vocal soloists
- Choral programs including John Rutter Dancing Day
- Solo harp - with numerous programs - solo recording in French, Italian, and Canadian repertoire
- Orchestral - excerpts and concertos
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
