Harpeggio Studio feedback:
'Tiffany is a very professional, competent teacher who is able to relate to students of all ages. I started learning the harp from her in 2010 when I was in my late 60's. I had no previous musical experience, but she was very patient and soon put me at ease. She provides opportunities to play in groups of adult and school age students and also organizes concerts twice a year when all her pupils can meet and play solos and in groups. Tiffany is a very caring person and her lessons are a lot of fun.'

Audience feedback from New Zealand and overseas:
'Several times members of your audience have spoken gratefully and warmly to me about your playing and your passionate and clear explanations of your two harps, triple and lever, and of the music you were about to play. Inspired by others’ reports of your concert, some who were not there have asked about you.'
'We were very pleased to be invited to Tiffany's House Concert, which featured both her triple and lever harps. We have known Tiffany since the beginning of her harp journey and were thoroughly blessed to hear how far she has come. The concert was very relaxed and friendly but operated in a very professional manner.
Tiffany played 14 pieces – five on the triple harp and nine on the lever harp. They were played flawlessly and with beautiful emotion. The pieces were well chosen and varied for all tastes, from classical to modern. The presentation to us before each piece was well researched and passed on to us excellently and with humour.'
'Your playing gave great pleasure to the truly musical amongst us, for they understood emotionally and intellectually what you were doing; that you demonstrated to those who knew what a harp was that you were going further by giving them mind-blowing ideas of the possibilities it offered and its variety of sound; that you are a delightful musician; a personable presenter in your introductions and explanations which could stick in the mind.'
'I was recently in the audience at a delightful “in-house” concert presented by Tiffany in Ngaio, Wellington. Because of my deafness, for me personally the intimate closeness of harpist to audience was an absolute pleasure, and it was a joy to listen to her chosen pieces. The Triple Harp pieces were fascinating to watch, and the variety of the Lever Harp bracket was delightful. All the pieces were introduced nicely by Tiffany.'
'Your concert was excellent and most interesting. It was a lovely wholesome afternoon and we all enjoyed it very much. Impressed by your initiative in producing the concert.'
‘What a wonderful repertoire Tiffany gave us in Upper Hutt. She played both harps and gave a masterful performance. Just beautiful to hear the arpeggios and some familiar tunes. Lovely afternoon tea too.'
'Thank you so much Tiffany for your outstanding performance of ‘Perfect’ by Ed Sheeran. I hope you’ve enjoyed playing it as much as we did! It was ‘Perfect’ to walk down the aisle to and I’m still thinking back to the day every time I hear that song playing.'
‘Thank you ever so much for playing at our wedding. We knew from the first time we saw one of your performances on YouTube that we wanted you to play at our wedding, and it was the best decision. Your performance was absolutely beautiful and took the ceremony to the next level in terms of atmosphere and romance. Thank you also for your professionalism and friendliness. Planning a wedding can be a stressful process organising so many different aspects, so it was wonderful to have such helpful and prompt communication with you, and we could just relax that this element of the wedding was sorted. We are really thrilled that you were a part of our special day and will definitely recommend Tiffany and ‘The Baker Duo’ to all our friends and family in the future.’
