Heather's teaching comes from a passion that she has carried throughout her life, coupled with a love for sharing tools and knowledge. Training in Broadway, jazz and choral singing as a youth, Heather gained valuable education for basic mechanics early on. She then received training from Expressive Arts Therapy school Tamalpa Institute, plus became a certified yoga teacher, in her 20's. Heather integrates her unique training and passion into a fusion of mechanical and expressive approaches to the art of singing. She offers her holistic curriculum to help students discover and gain mastery of their authentic voice, no matter their level of expertise.
