Hi, I’m Heaven! Music has always touched a deep place in my heart and I feel that it has the power to be such a cathartic and healing mode of self expression and connecting to our hearts. I’ve always felt that teaching was part of my calling in life. Ever since I was a little kid I loved sharing skills and helping people learn. As I got older, I realized that what I love even more, is to emotionally support and inspire myself and others to grow towards embodying our most authentic, aligned and flourishing versions of ourselves and to follow our passions and dreams. One of my goals in teaching is to create an inclusive environment where students of all ages, identities and experiences can feel accepted, seen and welcome. As a highly sensitive person and empath, and as a non binary person of color living with disabilities, I wish to help create spaces where we can all thrive, feel safe and be celebrated exactly as we are. I believe that by holding ourselves and being held in love and community and learning to listen to and honor our needs and capacity, we can tap into our innate gifts and passion. I hope that the presence, experience and knowledge that I have to share, can inspire you. To feel empowered to both discover and deepen your love of learning to play an instrument, sing, or write songs. And to have fun and tap into your creative potential along the way, as we journey together towards learning, growth, and embodying our highest selves!

My first lesson with Heaven was great! I came in knowing nothing about the violin, but Heaven started with the basics like how to hold the violin and the bow. We started with small steps and gradually built on them as I got the hang of it. Heaven was very patient, explained things clearly, and offered good tips on how to improve. It was a great introduction to the violin and I even got to play a little song at the end, which really boosted my confidence!
I have learned a great deal and throughly have enjoyed my violin lessons from Heaven. Heaven is a fantastic person to be around and has a real talent for sharing and teaching her vast musical knowledge.
Heaven created a safe learning environment in which my shy daughter Ruby opened up, truly connected with Heaven and significantly improved her music reading and violin skills. Heaven has a firm but encouraging and gentle style; their patience is incredible. They also make their classes fun by integrating games, drawing and rewards. We consider ourselves lucky to have worked with them.
