"Heather's unique method of vocal instruction was perfect for me. The incorporation of was an excellent way of approaching singing technique that made it feel comfortable, meditative and most of all fun. Through call and response I was guided through rich melodies that brought my voice to new places, and I left the lesson feeling very encouraged and musically satisfied".


I teach each student to their specific needs and style. I teach with a very comfortable and laid back method but also structure and discipline. I teach guitar and mandolin mainly, of all styles and levels. I also can teach banjo, bass guitar, piano and ukelele; but these instruments are limited to beginner and intermediate levels and all styles. I teach out of tall toad music and the phoenix theatre in Petaluma, CA. Contact me for prices and open dates and times! Cheers!


I offer professional music instruction for guitar, bass, piano, vocals, banjo and ukelele in a private lesson format. We also offer periodic workshops for specific music styles, as well as an introductory class on the guitar for children under 10.


My studio is a 5-day-a-week, one-stop shop where both students and/or adults may rent, purchase and/or repair their string instruments as they attend lessons at the same Heaney Violins location. I teach Suzuki method piano, violin, viola, guitar, beginning cello, and recorder beginning from ages 2 1/2 upwards. Voice is also taught and other instruments including ukelele, mandolin, banjo and harmonica. South Indian karnatak violin is also an option. Biannual recitals are held closely to the Mountain View studio location, and monthly group classes are also encouraged along with weekly instruction. Younger Suzuki students must be accompanied by parents who will learn along with their child how to play their instrument of choice. Typically, students enroll a semester at a time, except for summer sessions which are open enrollment periods.
