Harpist Leeds.
She began the harp at the age of six, passing her Grade 8 Pedal Harp with Distinction at 18. Now at 22 she is a fourth year music student at Leeds University reading Performance and Musical Technology.

She plays a concert harp with an extended soundboard, the Ariana by Salvi. The harp is inspired by the fine art of marquetry famous in Italy and features handcrafted veneer and maple. It is an exceptionally beautiful harp.

Her repertoire is very varied, ranging through Classical to Celtic and including show tunes, film themes and jazz. She also plays her own compositions and arrangements. Her experience of playing at functions began at eleven and she has played at civil ceremonies, drinks receptions, wedding breakfasts, society functions and special occasion dinners at the most prestigious hotels and restaurants of Yorkshire.

Her orchestral playing has taken her to Italy, Wales, Germany and several cathedrals and concert halls within Britain. She was selected as the English player for the prestigious New Sounds Concert at the Edinburgh International Harp Festival for the Millennium Festival and played for the BBC 'Songs of Praise'.

For five years she was Principal Harp for Leeds Youth Orchestra and played for Leeds Youth Opera and Leeds University Orchestra as well as being invited to play for orchestras of Yorkshire and Lancashire, including The Leeds Symphony Orchestra.

She is currently under the tutorage of Eira Lynn Jones, the Professor of Music at the Royal Northern College in Manchester. She continues to learn new arrangements and harping techniques. She has also studied with many famous harpers such as Savourna Stevenson, Wendy Stewart, Isobel Mieras and Anne McDearmid, as well as with some great American harpists such as Park Stickney, Deborah Henson Conant, Carol McLaughlin and Kim Robertson. She has also been a pupil of Frank Sternfield and Ieuan Jones.
