Heidi is an experienced piano instructor, caring about her student's progress and motivating them appropriately. As a senior, I find she is able to tailor her instruction according to my personal need and at the same time make learning to play the piano an enjoyable experience.

Heidi is a sensitive and musical pianist, and she is also a wonderful sight reader! She has helped me to prepare for auditions and we have worked on some recording projects together.
