The first time Heather traveled for a concert was to Quadra Island. While waiting for the ferry a friend and Heather started fiddling to pass the time. Before they knew it a crowd had gathered and a driver offered them his flat bed truck to play on. This spontaneity of music is one that reverberates through language barriers and tears down misconceptions of “traditional music” as boring and out of touch. As a professional violinist and trained Suzuki teacher, Heather encourages students of all ages to discover their love of music. Through a mixture of classic repertoire and fiddle, students explore and develop their musical abilities. The Blue Octopus Studio is located in Vic West near Banfield Park and on the No. 14 bus line.
