Heather's passion for the harp ignited at the age of six and as a junior student at Trinity College of Music she studied harp with Gabriella Dall’Olio and Frances Kelly and continued her studies at The Royal Academy of Music, London with Karen Vaughan (Head of Harp) graduating with an MA with Distinction, BMus (Hons) and an LRAM harp teaching diploma.
As an exceptional soloist, orchestral and chamber musician Heather's talents have graced royalty, celebrity events and prestigious concert venues including The Royal Festival Hall, Cadogan Hall, Kings College Chapel, Cambridge, Glyndebourne Opera House, Kensington Palace and St James’ Palace.
One of Heather's great joys is pushing the boundaries of the harp, a versatile instrument that allows her to explore its many different forms. In addition to the Classical Harp Heather performs on Celtic, Baroque triple and Paraguayan Harps.
As an active chamber musician Heather is a founder member of The Aurora Trio. From 2014-2016 The Aurora Trio was awarded a prestigious chamber music fellowship at The Royal Academy of Music and in July 2016, they were awarded the Dorothy Parkinson Memorial Award for Young British Musicians at Harrogate International Festival.
Heather has featured on a number of recordings including composer Paul Patterson’s CD ‘Harp Gallery’ which showcases his works for harp, a recording for Rick Wakeman and a number of video game sound-tracks including the award winning ‘Total War’ series.
Performance highlights include playing at The Royal Opera House, London for His Royal Highness King Charles III 60th birthday celebration and performing the Mozart Flute and Harp Concerto with the European Union Chamber Orchestra and Cyprus Sinfonia.
