Heather Hall, Director and Advanced Piano Instructor
Born and raised in Raymond, Alberta, Heather studied under a number of teachers and progressed through the Royal Conservatory of Music program (known in the U.S. as the National Music Certificate Program). She has always loved to play the piano, and was often asked to stop practicing by her family.
She received a bachelor of music in performance and pedagogy from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, where she studied with Douglas Humpherys and Paul Pollei. Heather then moved to Norman, Okla., where she studied with Jane Magrath and E.L. Lancaster, receiving a master’s of music in performance and pedagogy from the University of Oklahoma in May 1996.
The Heather Hall Piano Studio was opened in 1999 in Highlands Ranch, and moved to Erie in 2005 to become My Piano Prodigy in 2009.
