She has also developed online materials for a university course which serves as a sequel to music appreciation entitled Masterworks of Music. These distance courses enroll up to 200 students at a time from across Canada and several other countries.

Her publications include a book entitled Performing Baroque Music (Amadeus Press: Portland, Oregon, 1992), articles for the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, and articles and reviews in music journals. She is currently conducting research toward a new scholarly edition of the music of the 17th-century composer, Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de La Guerre.
