Heather Smith

Heather has a multi-faceted career as a music educator, administrator, adjudicator, and community arts advocate. She is a US Representative and member of the College of Examiners for The Royal Conservatory of Music.

Prior to switching to a career in music, Heather received a degree in accounting and worked as a tax manager for several years. Realizing that music was where her heart lay, she returned to school and earned two additional degrees, this time in piano performance. Heather teaches individual piano lessons and group classes in her private music studio in Centerville, Utah.

Katie Poli PTS Q+A guest

Christopher Norton

Christopher is well known for his compositions for piano from beginner to advanced. His pieces have been listed in piano exam syllabi around the world. 

Originally a New Zealander, Christopher now resides in Canada. In 1983, he was signed by Boosey & Hawkes, and the first of the Microjazz series appeared. This was a new style of music which appealed greatly to children and teenagers but was sufficiently rooted in the classical tradition to be useful as teaching material.

Chris is a passionate advocate for teaching students how to improvise and compose.

WHY we created Q+A...

The world has been in crisis. There have been many changes to our lifestyle and of course, teaching piano. We have all learned new ways of teaching. Q+A is striving to bring experienced teachers together to share ideas, information and stories so that you may find some new strategies to keep your students engaged and learning.

Gillian and Paul's panel of guests will:

  • Discuss, debate and answer your questions;
  • share their experiences and give advice;
  • provide information on a wide range of topics that relate to piano teachers.

Supporting and connecting virtually with each other is the only way forward. Let's all be part of the solution to this crisis. We need your support to make this as helpful as possible to the piano teaching community.
