I specialize in teaching adults, including adult beginners. I teach all styles of music, including classical and popular music. I also teach on Skype.

I love people who want to play the piano :)  I feel blessed to bring the joy of piano playing into people's lives.   I love interacting with each student as a unique individual.  I rejoice in their progress !      With advanced students I adore teaching the finer points of performance when teaching the Baroque/ Classical and Romantic masterpieces !

    I couldn’t be happier that I found Dr. Heger after deciding to take piano lessons in retirement. She is extremely personable and a wonderful teacher. Lessons are engaging because she shares her vast knowledge about the composers and music assignments so you have a frame of reference about each piece. I highly recommend her if you’re looking for a teacher who is open-minded and flexible; and who provides personalized attention, guidance, and expertise to help you achieve your goals.

    Ive been taking lessons for about a year and a half with Dr. Heger. I started as a complete music illiterate and have now began to flower into a musician. What a great teacher and a good friend too!

    Dr. Sarah Heger is not only highly qualified and an excellent pianist, but she also has decades of experience in teaching. From the very first lesson I was struck by her dedication, her enthusiasm and her ability to make everything crystal clear. She inspires me to practice with her choice of pieces and exercises and spurs my interest in learning more about classical music, watching great pianists playing concertos on YouTube. She is flexible about scheduling the lessons around my busy schedule. As a teacher she has exceeded my expectations. I am very glad I found her. She is as patient as she is enthusiastic and fun, and every lesson is enjoyable. I heartily recommend her to anyone who wants to learn to play the piano.

    I started piano lessons with Dr. Heger two weeks ago as an adult beginner with no prior musical experience, and I've already learned how to read notes and play some basic songs. She is a really great teacher! Before I started lessons, the thought of being able to play piano seemed overwhelming and impossible, but Dr. Heger does such a good job of taking you through it step by step. I'm making progress way faster than I expected and look forward to continuing lessons. Dr. Heger is also very responsive with communicating and flexible with scheduling lessons, and her rate is a really good deal. I definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to learn how to play the piano.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I give a first FREE "meet and Greet" lesson to a new student so that they may get to know me, and I them. I tailor my lessons to the individual needs and abilities of each student. Lessons are cheerful and relaxed. I am flexible about scheduling. I make myself available for lessons all seven days of the week, inclufing evenings.
