PRAISE from students and colleagues
“Heather comes with impressive credentials and experience. Not only does she have a beautiful powerful voice, she is also a gifted teacher. She is everything you want in a coach and mentor: kind and thorough, and she makes our time together so much fun. Have always loved singing, but never did much with it since I was a young person in school. Have missed it so. Sessions with Heather have reconnected me with this old love, pushed me to expand my voice, get stronger, and feel more confident. The time flies, any self-consciousness disappears under her tutelage and I feel incredible afterwards. She is definitely a gift to me and to anyone who wants to explore their voice or expand their ability. She is a musical gem tucked away in West Los Angeles.” -Lisa Marguerite Mora, writer & editor and writing coach (Hidden Wisdom Writing Workshops)
"Heather is a superb voice coach. She has years of experience singing in the genres most classically trained instructors lack, from blues, gospel and jazz, to Americana, as well as current studio and live techniques. She can help you blend or belt, hit high notes or whisper and has real gifts helping singers identify and connect with a lyric and sing with confidence. She can help people of all ages and singing ability."
-Steve McCormick, Veteran songwriter, recording artist and producer

“Heather’s voice has the delicacy of an angel, the power of a soul diva, the swing of a jazzer and the playfulness of a popstress.”
- Panos Panay, Founder of Sonicbids
“A diva in the making, Heather is a versatile performer. Her knack for rearranging and reinventing classic songs is refreshing, and her originals show great potential. This artist bears watching, and is a wonderful addition to the L.A. music scene.” -
