About Heather R.

As a piano and voice instructor, I have taught individual lessons for the past 13 years to students from 5 to 85, beginners to advanced students. I hold Master of Fine Arts degrees in both Collaborative Piano Performance and Vocal Performance from Notre Dame de Namur University. In addition to my private students, I am the vocal coach and accompanist for the Sacramento City College Music Department, Choral Academy Coordinator and accompanist for the Sacramento Children's Chorus, and accompanist for Light Opera Theatre of Sacramento. I also am co-founder and artistic director of the Empire Arts Collective Pop Choir. Lessons are taught at the Sacramento Preparatory Music Academy. Please note that while piano lessons are offered for students as young as 5, voice lessons are not offered until students are at least 13.

I really enjoyed my first lesson. Heather was flexible and understanding. She even played something for me. Looking forward to the next lesson!
