Heather is dedicated to helping singers of all ages and levels achieve their goals by demystifying the act of singing. Outside the studio, you’ll find her teaching karate, spending time with her family and paddle surfing.
After an informative and enriching afternoon masterclass, Heather collaborated with these wonderful students to perform a dazzling evening concert of musical theatre, opera and operetta.
