When she was 5 years old Heidi received her first ukulele from the Hawaiian Easter bunny while living in Kailua, HI. She has fond memories of teaching herself chords and writing songs in her room in Albuquerque NM, the place she thinks of as home. She picked the instrument up again in 1992 in Hollywood, CA while playing a singer-songwriter for a network TV pilot. Now life imitates art, and she plays music full time.
Heidi LOVES working with beginning and intermediate students of all ages. Her classes are fun, and people often find themselves laughing so much they don’t realize how much they are learning! She is particularly good at explaining complicated concepts in very simple terms. Besides teaching how to play ukulele she teaches musical improvisation, like you might see on “Whose Line is it Anyway?” and shares techniques to free performers from blocks and stage fright. She is personable, non-threatening and loves engagement. Seeing people along on their journey to connectedness through music is her passion.
