"Many people think of the harp as an ethereal unicorn, but it's really not. Yes, it's a big scary looking instrument, but it's no less intimidating than the piano or the violin. My goal is to shatter the idea that nobody plays the harp anymore."

"I truly believe that anyone can learn to play the harp."

"The harp is my passion and I love to share it with anyone and everyone."
