Ms. Heather owns and operates Brannon’s Music Room in downtown Fredericton where she teaches private piano lessons, Music for Young Children® programs, and Music Pups® classes. She has enjoyed sharing the Musicplay® program with students at Fredericton Montessori Academy since 2018.
She obtained a Grade 9 certificate in piano and a Grade 3 certificate in History and Harmony from the Royal Conservatory of Music. Although she has taught private piano lessons for 26 years, she became a certified instructor for Music for Young Children® in 2004 and for Music Pups® in 2006. Early childhood is the window of opportunity for musical development and these programs, specially designed and produced for the child’s age and development, use a multi-sensory approach that meet each child’s learning styles and needs.
Upon graduating with a bachelor degree from UNB, she worked for several years as a Business Instructor with local business colleges and has a diploma in Early Childhood Education.
She recently completed 19 years of homeschooling with her 3 daughters, who are now enrolled in or have graduated from post-secondary educational institutions.
She is currently the Music Director at Nashwaaksis United Church where she plays both piano and organ and directs the Church Choir. She has experience as an accompanist for Music Festival classes, weddings, and funerals and is a member of the Fredericton Music Teachers’ Association.
