Chanah owns a beautiful semi-grand pedal harp called Venus Premier and a lever-operated floor harp called a Camac Korrigan. The Premier is used most often, since it can accommodate any style of music. The Korrigan, though, is more easily transportable and is best suited for Celtic or Renaissance music.

Chanah has cultivated a full, romantic sound to entrance and dazzle her audience. In the relatively recent past, music for the harp has bloomed into an astounding range of styles, and Chanah loves to explore the musical possibilities this presents.

She began playing the harp in 2002. She began harp studies with Laura Majestic, then attended and graduated from The Juilliard School Pre-College Division in Harp Performance. She graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor of Music with Highest Honors, and completed her Master of Music degree at the University of Illinois. Harp studies have included tutelage under the guidance of Ann Yeung, Joan Holland, Bridget Kibbey, June Han, Kathleen Bride, Lynne Aspnes, and Laura Majestic.

She has attended summer seminars and workshops at MPULSE: The Harp Institute at U-Michigan with Lynne Aspnes, The Practical Harpist at The Eastman School of Music with Kathleen Bride, and the Somerset Folk Harp Festival in New Jersey. She also participated as an assistant at the 2014 Illinois Summer Harp Class (iSHC) at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

In addition to presenting solo recitals, she has also collaborated with other talented artists of various artistic disciplines to produce dance performances and chamber music recitals. She has had extensive experience with orchestras and wind ensembles at The Juilliard School in Manhattan, NY; The University of Michigan, MI; The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, IL; the Eastern Illinois Orchestra; the Sagamon Valley Community Orchestra; and other additional locations in IL, VA, OH, NY, and NJ.
