Scales and Arpeggios


Greetings to my fellow musicians, music teachers, and music lovers!

I’m glad you’re here.

Who I Am

Heidi from Scales and Arpeggios

My name is Heidi, and I’m a piano and violin teacher and church musician in West Michigan.

I play the piano, violin, and cello, and I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Thomas Edison State University in December 2019.

I love music, and I also love to write!

Why I’m Here

Have you ever felt alone on this musical journey?

Have you ever wished you had a community of fellow learners to walk by your side as you work on perfecting your technique, try to polish your piano teaching method, or improve your grasp of music theory?

I have, and that’s why I started Scales and Arpeggios.

I wanted to create a helpful, supportive, and down-to-earth community that will bring people together as they grow and learn from each other.
