“I am very thrilled to be the harp instructor of Lakehead University. I look forward to building a
studio with young aspiring harpists who would like to seek well-rounded training in harp and
music. Critical and creative thinking is highly encouraged and I will try my best to support their
personal goals and help them create their own unique career path. I also specialize in
contemporary music, so some of the focus would be performing new works and developing skills
in transcriptions/arrangements.”
