I also have an album of solo harp nursery rhymes. This is free to stream or download on the Baby Harp Nursery Rhymes page.


I am a music in healthcare practitioner based in Surrey and I have led harp based music sessions with early years children in hospital and healthcare settings for over 10 years.

I am also a keen writer. I hold an MA in screenwriting and have copy-written for a range of clients including MTV and The Discovery Channel.

Live school sessions

If you would like to discuss a live harp visit for your school or facility I can provide small, socially distant classroom concerts working to suit your schools bubble arrangements. Performances can combine Harp Tale poems along with solo harp versions of nursey rhymes, rhythm and action songs, popular Disney and film songs and classical interludes.

Remote ‘Zoom’ based video concerts can also be arranged.
