I love all things music! I am classically trained in flute and piano, and have a music degree from Brigham Young University. I have a passion for music education and find making music with young musicians so rewarding! I have several years of experience teaching both flute and piano to students of all ages and skill levels. I love to teach, and look forward to sharing many great musical moments with your children!

"My daughter has been taking lessons from Heather just under a year and has made amazing progress. She thoroughly enjoys Heather as a teacher. Heather is an amazing teacher. She has worked with my daughters learning style and interest, making lessons and practice enjoyable. Thanks Heather!"

"My (then) 6 year old daughter started piano lessons with Heather at the end of 2011. She has learned to love playing the piano. Heather's enthusiasm for music, along with her loving and caring nature towards children, has really allowed my daughter to excel in piano and have a high confidence in herself. I would highly recommend Heather to anyone who is seeking a piano teacher. "

"My daughter began taking lessons with Heather in the fall of 2011. Not only does my daughter LOVE spending lesson time with her, she has grown tremendously as a young pianist. Heather's demeanor with kids is so charming and kind - it is no wonder that they work so hard to achieve successes. We are lucky to have found her! I would recommend her to any parent looking for a piano instructor!"

"My 9 old daughter has been taking lessons with Heather for the past year or so. This was her first exposure to the piano and she was excited to learn. Since our household became the recipient of a piano from a relative that passed away we were anxious to get some use out of the instrument.
Heather tailors lessons to the student. Her teaching style is warm, friendly and inviting. (Just like her family) My daughter really enjoys her time at lessons. Heather pays a remarkable amount of attention to the playing techniques -- hand position, finger position. My daughter has fun and also learns so much each week. I cannot believe the progress she has made over this short period of time.
I am really glad that we found Heather. She is very flexible with our schedule and for that, we are grateful.
We highly recommend Heather!"

"Heather is a great piano teacher, and she is also a warm & wonderful person. My children enjoyed three years of lessons with Heather beginning when they were in 1st and 2nd grades, respectively. I was happy with the progress they made under her tutelage, and my children were always happy to have another lesson with Heather. We recommend her highly! "

" Heather is a lovely person and a wonderful music teacher. She taught my son piano for two and a half years, and I sat in on many of their lessons. Heather took time to get to know my son and created a strong bond with him that made him want to do his best. She was supportive and consistent, challenged him to improve his playing, and taught him music theory in creative ways. My son has ADHD and often requires redirection, which Heather provided effortlessly and patiently. She is reliable, enthusiastic and professional and was a pleasure to work with. We miss her a lot and I highly recommend her."

"Heather is a great teacher! She understood my child's level and encouraged her to improve and better her skills while helping her to enjoy the music and the lessons, not an easy thing to do. My daughter took both flute and piano with Heather and she excelled in both with Heather helping her along. She was able to perform at her school for solos with confidence. She increased her musical knowledge significantly during the two years that she took lessons. I would highly recommend Heather for a teacher in both flute and piano."

"Heather was a great teacher for my young daughter just starting out. Her warm, friendly personality and nurturing way made for a safe and encouraging environment to learn to play piano, and fun for her from the very beginning, so that she wanted to keep going back."

"Heather is a WONDERFUL piano teacher. She started teaching my son when he was 8 years old and he continued with her for the next 3 years (until she moved). (At his last recital he played Turkish March by Mozart beautifully.) She teaches in a positive manner and provided a wonderful foundation from which to build on. She is able to work with parents to individualize the instruction for their own child and she is able to teach both the beginner as well as the advanced player. I highly recommend her!"

"Both of my girls practiced piano with Heather (ages 7-10) and LOVED her! We were very sad to see her leave the area, but wish her all the best in her new adventure. The girls looked forward to lessons weekly and always ended their year with confidence for the recital. She provided them with a sound base at the beginner level from which they continue to progress with their music. My eldest also took up clarinet this year, and having had practiced music with Heather previously, has progressed very quickly adding a second instrument to her repertoire. Thank you Heather!"
