Heather Stearns

Accomplished ukulele bard with a passion for sharing her knowledge and love of music.
Teaching Philosophy

I prefer to teach to the student's individual goals, so it is best if the student is an active and engaged participant in the learning process. I believe there is more than one way to learn music, and am committed to helping students explore what methods (learning to read notation, learning to play by ear, practice routines, comfort with their instrument) work best for them.
