Hello! I believe that the joy of music should always be present when you sing, and that singing is a great way to see the benefits of hard work pay off. I look forward to helping you reach your goals! I've been studying singing for eleven years. I've performed classical, musical theatre, metal, jazz, and gospel music, and I've been a choir conductor, choreographer, children's group leader, and private voice teacher. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music and Linguistics from the University of Oregon and a Master's Degree in Vocal Performance from Boston Conservatory at Berklee.

Heather was an awesome teacher who was not only very encouraging and supportive but offered a lot of tips on how to improve on areas of singing that I wished to work on. She really listens to you and does her best to provide good feedback and additional exercises for you to work on and meet your goals. I had a wonderful and productive experience with Heather!

Heather has been fantastic for my 10 yr old! It is clear Heather's knowledge is extensive but she makes the lessons fun and is so engaging with my daughter. My kid doesn't realize how much she is learning and just loves going to her lessons every week! As a bonus, her singing actually improved as well! I was impressed! Heather is superb and all you could hope for in a teacher.

You can really tell how passionate she is about singing and that only makes the experience and lessons even better because it feels real. I looked forward to every Saturday

Heather may be the youngest voice coach in Boston at the moment, but her wealth of knowledge in singing technique reaches far beyond her years. Not only is she noticeably well educated, but she's also got great observational skills which are really helpful when I'm looking for feedback on how I deliver a song. She is a very cheerful, organized, and sincerely committed instructor. I would recommend her to anyone!

Heather and I are colleagues at the Boston Conservatory's graduate music program, and as a fellow instructor I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking voice lessons. Heather is not only a skilled vocalist, but she is very personable and fun to be around; she's the kind of teacher to help students feel at ease and encouraged. I have enjoyed working with her.
