"Teaching is a very important and enriching part of my life. I prepare my students for the Trinity-Guildhall and Associated Board graded music examinations. Through a variety of subjects, my harp lessons also involve the study of music theory and musicianship, which helps my pupils not just to be able to play the harp, but to become well-rounded musicians and aim to provide a comprehensive education that will enhance the learners understanding of bigger musical context. I like keeping my lessons fun and productive at the same time by encouraging parents to attend lessons, so they can learn with their child and guide them during their practice. No two children learn the same. Teaching young learners has a great sense of responsibility, and I wish to provide them a solid foundation of musical education, which they can build on in their later studies."
