When I decided to start the harp, I was already a music student in classical singing in Cegep, I was about 19-ish. I had to choose a second instrument to study, and as I already had piano basics, I wanted to try something a little different. I had this friend living in the same town as I who played the harp, and I thought it was pretty cool. Hence I started lessons, and I fell in deep love with the harp, but it only lasted 2-3 months (this was in 2012, we had a huge student strike, so I wan't even able to complete my session. I went on with my singing studies without thinking much about it as it wasn't really an option for me to ever get a harp of my own.
A few years later, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, and for months on-going I wasn't able to sing anymore. This made me rethink my career choices, as it became really obvious I couldn't make it as a singer if I was going to be so deeply affected by my personnal life. I thought again about the harp, and I decided to rent one to see if that could be an option for me. The harp was speaking to me in a way that singing couldn't ever do. I auditionned for the harp program and since there are not a lot of harp students, I was lucky that I got accepted in. I finished my bachelor degree in music as a harpist, and kept singing. Since then, my goal is to accompany myself on the harp in my own projects as well as in various events.
Salvi Arion SG 47 (Harpe à pédales)
Parfaites pour une ambiance sophistiquée et pour la musique classique. très grande versatilité pour le répertoire, et offre définitivement un cachet fantaisiste à un évènement!
Lyon & Healy Silhouette (Electrique /Celtique)
Offre la possibilité d'explorer des sonorités tout à fait contemporaines & inusitées! Offre un répertoire plus restreint, mais offre des possibilités aussi plus lounge / jazz.
