Don't worry...play music!

While I'm enjoying my teaching this summer, I'm also enjoying taking lessons myself again.  It's always humbling to step into a place where you've never been before and show someone your 'lack' of skills in a new area.  You have to let go of any worry about not performing your best for someone else.  Showing a lack of proficiency in front of someone else is difficult, but it's how we get better at something.  Taking lessons again is reminding me about how it feels being in the student seat. I'm excited and nervous all at the same time!   I love having someone to talk with about music and speaking that language is so fun.  I am rejuvenated and excited to spend time playing and getting new skills under my belt.  If you're thinking about picking up the guitar or ukulele or going back to learn piano or another instrument, go for it.  I'm cheering for you!

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.
