Additional services
  • I provide lessons for online students

I have a Bachelor of Music Education, and introduce students of all ages to music and the joy of playing piano through the Simply Music method.  My students gain a love of music for life.  Along with playing a host of beautiful songs, they gain a myriad of skills: accompanying themselves as they sing, mindful movement and applied music theory.

In addition to piano, I teach singing, harp and eurythmy.  Since 2022 I have lived in the Great Southern Region of Western Australia and teach in Denmark, Albany, and online.

Individuals and small groups of all ages learn piano, singing, harp and eurythmy.  I run workshops in therapeutic music and play therapeutic harp at the bedside.  I am artistic director of Swanharp Ensemble, a performing group of singers, harpists and instrumentalists, based in Denmark.  Swanharp projects in 2023-24 include studio recitals, music for spiritual outreach in the community, shows for Denmark Festival of Voice and Brave New Works, and collaborative performances with Australian Baroque, Sarabande Early Music Ensemble, Albany Chamber Orchestra, and Albany Choral Society.

Sitting at the piano, it is as though the cosmos is laid out in front of us.  The Simply Music method allows us to access it with confidence and freedom.
