Heather’s goal is to provide a safe, fun environment for adults and children alike to grow in their love for and ability to play classical music. Along with classical music, she also encourages pursuing individual interests, such as learning how to compose, learning how to play music from guitar chords, and learning pieces the student picks out.

Growth in musical abilities does require consistent practice. Heather helps the students set clear, doable goals to make practice easier. If the student is a child, she will also work with the parents to set appropriate goals. These goals will often include performing in a recital, audition, or other competition. Performing helps push the student to the next level, allows them to share their love of music with others, and teaches them confidence in front of people.

About Heather D.

Heather has taught piano for 8+ years. Her main focus is classical piano, but she has also helped students learn how to compose and play by ear. Her students have won college scholarships and participated in the National Auditions hosted by the American College of Musicians, National Guild of Piano Teachers. She loves learning about the individual strengths and weaknesses of each of her students and tailoring lessons to them.
