Welcome! My name is Heather Bachelder. I teach voice and sing in Boston. I believe that music can have a profound impact in anyone's life, and communities with limited access to music are especially important to me. My private voice students fall across a range of ages, experience levels, and musical areas of interest. Now that I've earned my Master's degree in Vocal Performance from the Boston Conservatory at Berklee, I'm excited to take on new students.
Heather Bachelder is a vocalist and voice teacher in Boston. She is currently a member of Marsh Chapel Choir and Chorus pro Musica, and recently performed in the opera ensemble of Boston Conservatory’s Die Lustigen Weiber von Windsor. She has performed choral and gospel music in Germany, Austria, Ireland, and China. Heather holds a B.A. in Music from the University of Oregon and an M. M. in Vocal Performance from Boston Conservatory.Vocal Resume
Heather has experience working with young musicians as a camp leader, conductor, and choreographer. In 2015, she began teaching private voice students of all ages and musical interests. Heather believes that music can change lives at any skill level. Her teaching style incorporates techniques of breathing, physicality, sound production, diction, acting, and joyful singing! Are you interested in finding your unique voice while singing the music you love? Heather is currently looking for students at age 7 and up. She teaches in Allston during the summer, Quincy in the fall, and even at your door!Teaching Resume
"You can really tell how passionate she is about singing and that only makes the experience and lessons even better because it feels real. I looked forward to every Saturday."
"Heather may be the youngest voice coach in Boston at the moment, but her wealth of knowledge in singing technique reaches far beyond her years. Not only is she noticeably well educated, but she's also got great observational skills which are really helpful when I'm looking for feedback on how I deliver a song. She is a very cheerful, organized, and sincerely committed instructor. I would recommend her to anyone!"
