Dr. Heather A. Hamilton
Heather has been our Director of Music since 2011. She started playing piano at the age of 6, and remembers sitting under the grand piano coloring while her mother had voice lessons. These days she lives in Westport and is the owner of Hamilton Music Services, teaching beginner through advanced piano, as well as theory, history and composition to children and adults of all ages. In addition to the piano, Heather also plays the organ, percussion, cello (her favorite musical instrument) and clarinet. She is well-known in the local music community as a conductor, accompanist, and educator.
Heather holds two masters degrees in Music from the Manhattan School of Music, and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership. She is a frequent guest lecturer in the arts throughout Fairfield County. She enjoys all kinds of music, and her favorite composer is whichever one she is listening to at the moment.
