Her heart primarily belongs to chamber music (Duo+, TriDalí), contemporary music (Insomnio, De Koene Ridders) and performance art. Sabien teaches at the Fontys Conservatory of Music and released the international harp tutor ‘Harpologie’. She is actively involved in the harp world (Dutch Harp Festival, Harp Bulletin).

The German harpist Miriam Overlach moved to Holland for her studies at the Amsterdam Conservatory with Erika Waardenburg. Her solo competition successes include the Concertgebouw prize for Young Soloists, and the Dutch Harp Competition in 2007.
