My students know that I LOVE to teach! Discovering each child’s ability and style of learning is fascinating to me and I love helping them succeed and grow a love of music.
I teach in Calgary, at the Chinook School of Music, a wonderful progressive environment that offers students a chance to learn and grow as musicians and human beings. CSM’s highly qualified instructors are dedicated to cultivating a lifelong love of music through the development of each student’s natural abilities.

If you’ve been to one of my shows, you know that I LOVE to perform! My goal is to entertain, connect, mesmerize, and wow an audience – where the music is playful, emotive, and inspirational. It’s easy to transport an audience from their immediate surroundings so that they soon begin to think about the origin and the history of tune.
Engaged audiences become energized audiences, and I feed off the positive vibe! That’s when I know they’re hooked – and I’ve done my job 😊 As corporate performances go, I’ve been fortunate to travel to and play in some amazing places. From Istanbul to Rome to Monaco. Each destination and audience brings its own energy and expectations.

A guilty pleasure this time of year is to hang Christmas decorations with my children (ok, I do this when they’re taking a nap), have a glass of eggnog, and play Christmas music in the background. I know, not exactly out of the norm, but the music makes all the difference. Christmas time in my native Australia is so different to North America. Singing I’m dreaming of a white Christmas when it’s 30C outside is truly bizarre! But, regardless if it’s 30C or -30C, Christmas songs have the power to put you in the holiday spirit 😊
My new Christmas album featuring Chantal Dube is one of my favorite albums! Throughout my journey with music, sound, and life each single and album epitomizes my evolution: from starting out as a young performer to motherhood to creating a more sophisticated sound. Perhaps include something about the natural acoustics in Scotland and or Bonneville Salt Flats?
