Since taking on her first student in 1992, Gianetta Baril has become passionate about sharing her experience and love of the harp with the next generation of musicians and music lovers. Her goal, by focusing on a warm, rich tone and a solid, relaxed technique, is to enable each student to express their individual musicality. Gianetta's greatest enjoyment comes from seeing a love similar to her own being instilled in students of this most beautiful and harmonious of instruments.
