Bio / Vision

heather1In Teaching, Learning, and Living, may we remember and embody the truth of who we are, bridging the Spirit and Body, the Sacred and the Profane...

Heather Hutton often calls herself a "Bridger" in the way she works and moves through the world, bringing together various styles of music and teachings to serve people of all ages and backgrounds. Her first muses as a child were singing and dancing, which were later partnered with playing the violin at age nine and a budding interest in psychology by age 12.

A Humboldt County native, she graduated from Humboldt State University with a degree in Music (vocal emphasis) and a teaching degree. She has worked as a public school music specialist in 11 different schools, serving mostly elementary aged children. She has also been a Music Director for conservatory productions and Church services. With a diverse background of vocal experience (solo/ensemble) including Jazz, Classical (soprano soloist for The Messiah..., Rock, Middle Eastern, and Opera (Rogue Opera Schools Tour); she combines her skill and technique with a natural and organic healing quality. She brings this fullness and beauty into her original songs ("Closing the Divide"), vocal coaching, and Music Ministry.

She has evolved her personal study, vocal experience and explorations with self and others into workshops and private sessions through her private practice: "Unified Voice-Works". Her work also includes juvenile detention centers, pre-college youth programs and conservatories.

In addition to vocal coaching, Heather continues to teach in the public school system and from 2012-2014 was on staff as the music teacher at "Woodland", a brand new Waldorf charter school located in Murphy. She currently works as a substitute teacher and is working on a Master's in Education degree. Heather also served as the Rogue Valley Peace Choir's artistic director for three seasons from 2008 and is now leader of the singing goup "Arise" Voice Tribe. Heather continues to sing and design music for organizations like Unity in Ashland  and perform original songs.
