Why New Music? — Why Not New Music! All music was new at one time and this music is new and exciting in our time. I love working with composers and their creative process. What interests me most is encouraging composers of all ages to write for the harp, how best to get their ideas across and how to write most effectively for the instrument. As an instrument the harp did not come into its own until the late 19th and early 20th Century. It has a wealth of sounds and lends itself particularly well to New Music.
