I love playing guitar! I teach beginning guitar to mostly children. I have taught some adults before and that is fun too! I like to make the lessons fun and interactive. Playing along with the students. Fun classic children's songs for younger students. If the student enjoys singing I encourage them to sing along when they feel comfortable. I sing and play guitar so I'm comfortable with singing along with student or singing on my own. I can also help the student to sing along with guitar. I adapt the lessons to meet the individual needs for each student.

*** Lesson Details ***
Beginning Piano, Guitar and Flute. Children's Music Class! Learning about music through music therapy!
Learning made fun!
It is of upmost importance that students are having fun and enjoying their music lessons. This goal is achieved by the teachers positive attitude and positive reinforcement during lessons. This will motivate the student to engage more in their own learning process. I find that this approach also helps students to want to practice and play more since they are enjoying their experience. Lessons are adaptive to the needs of each student. I expect my students to practice and play! The learning environment during the lessons creates a great sense of accomplishment for the student.

Heather has taught my girls more than any other teacher we have had. She was incredibly patient, and very likable. She was easy to work with us, and always accommodating. We definitely recommend her!

Heather is a wonderful teacher. My daughter looks forward and enjoys seeing her each week. She is very knowledgeable, and makes it easy for a child to learn and understand the guitar. It has been so convenient having her come to the house.

Heather has been a great piano teacher for my 6 year old daughter. She is great with kids & a nice, patient & enthusiastic approach. My daughter has only had 3 lessons now & has made great progress. I would highly recommend Heather.

Heather is very nice, cheerful and patient. I just decided to go with a much more experienced teacher that is charging much less but giving you much more, I am wishing Heather all the best she is really something.
