Heather Williams is a life-long singer and lover of music. She began singing with her grandfather as soon as she could stand next to him on a stage. In a cosmic "full-circle" way, her love for performing grew while participating in "The Music Company," a children's choir directed by a young Claudia Bigler. She went on to study vocal performance/pedagogy at both BYU and USU; eventually obtaining a Bachelor of Science from USU with a double major in Family and Human Development, and a music minor.
Heather has taught private vocal student in for 28 years. She owned and operated a successful children's performing choir in Orem, and subsequently in Brigham City for 12 years. She has taught children from the age 3 to 53, and loves teaching all ages. She has been a preschool teacher specializing in music, a music consultant for elementary schools, and a co-director of TaVaci Trios and Teen Groups. Most recently, she was employed by Box Elder Middle School as a choir director, and assisted as a long term substitute for the US Women's Choir. She loves sharing her love of singing with her four musical children, and her music-loving (and very supportive) husband.
