Musical Conversations

I just returned from a wonderful road trip with my family.  We saw mountains, rivers, cliff dwelling, dunes and more!  Along the way, I enjoyed several musical conversations with a variety of people..  Conversations about music, that is.  People are not exactly sure about why it happens, but music holds so much power.  Whether you are performing on an instrument, dancing to a song, or simply feeling the good vibes from a song on the radio, there is nothing else quite like music.  It reaches past any language barriers that might exist.  It can bring you to another state all together.  It can bring back a memory.  It can lift us and even annoy us.  It is accessible to all.  It is something to experience alone or with others.  It engages both sides of your brain.  It IS truly divine.  Maybe you meditate to a good Dvorak symphony or perhaps you like to get down to a  little George Clinton funk.  Whatever your mood, whatever your fancy, there's music to be found.  I'd love to know what's on your playlist this summer.    Shoot me an email at and let me know what's got you groovin this month.  


Heather Stenner

Heather Stenner has a passion for life! Her passions play out with music and children of all ages. Heather grew up in the Midwest and realized the importance of each day from a very young age. Her mother was diagnosed with a brain tumor when Heather was only 5. The doctors gave her mother 6 months to live. It was during the next 15 years that Heather developed her charismatic and joyful course for her own life! Her mother showed her strength and courage and an intense compassion for others and their suffering. Her mother passed away when Heather was 20 years old. Heather vowed she would continue to live each day as if it were her last. To treat people with compassion and believe in the love we all share for one another. At the age of 37, she became an orphan. Her father passed away from pancreatic cancer. Through it all, Heather realized that MUSIC was one of her coping mechanisms to deal with all the stress that cancer brought into their families lives. She vowed to share her love of music with children, so that it might also be a positive force in their lives! To this day, Heather creates music that has soul and passion. She hopes everyone will remember with the dawning of each day; we are all musical. Feel it in your soul. Keep it to yourself... or give it away.
