Emily has been playing the harp for over 25 years. She began playing at weddings at the age of ten. At Brigham Young University she played with the University Orchestra and the Harp Ensemble, which gave her the opportunity to perform with the Tabernacle Choir on Music and the Spoken Word.
Emily primarily studied with Tamara Oswald, principal harpist for the Orchestra at Temple Square. She also studied with Janet Peterson of Ballet West and ShruDeLi Owneby at BYU.
Emily teaches both piano and harp students. She plays regularly for Afternoon Tea at the Grand America Hotel and at Deer Valley's Snow Park Lodge.
