About Heidi S.

Heidi spends most of her time in Guatemala teaching music to children and adults who live in a private children's home in San Bartolome, Guatemala, but she continues to accept new, online flute and piano students. She has had students in 10 different states and across the world, including Guatemala, Egypt, and China. Heidi's been teaching flute and piano since 1980. She has taught flute at Tarrant County College and New Mexico State University, and at the University of North Texas and Baylor University as a graduate student. For six years she was the Advertising Editor for the National Flute Association's "Flutist Quarterly." She founded the Albuquerque Flute Association with her flute teacher, Frank Bowen in 1984. She completed all but her dissertation at the University of North Texas for a Doctorate of Musical Arts in flute performance. She arranges music for her students and for flute choir. She owns five auxiliary flutes - an Eb flute, a piccolo, a bass flute, two alto flutes, and plays on a handmade Brannen-Cooper flute. She has had articles published in "Flute Talk" and "Emerson Flute Forum." Heidi is delighted to share her vast knowledge of music with her students.

I love Heidi! She is the best flute lesson teacher out there!

I highly recommend Heidi! She is highly trained. She can help you with lots of basics, plus tips and tricks to help overcome the difficult parts of any flute piece or technique. I have been her student for four years, and I have made much progress! Plus Heidi is a precious Jesus follower and missionary to the children and orphans in Guatemala. You will be glad you chose her!

My daughter has been taking flute lessons from Heidi for the past 4months now and I have seen tremendous improvement in her. Heidi has a fantastic knowledge of flute. She super nice, very patient, fun and very encouraging which is key component for kids to continue to learn any instrument they are passionate about. When we started first, my daughter was asked what her goals are and she has been teaching based on that. All her lessons are thorough and everything is documented on skype for future reference. My daughter loves Heidi and she looks forward to her class every single time. I’m lucky to have a teacher like her for my daughter and I would highly recommend her.
