Heather Parkin - Woodwind Tutor

Heather was born in Brighton, where she played both clarinet and viola in the Brighton, East Sussex and West Sussex Youth Orchestras, as well as playing in both the East and West Sussex County bands. She then went on to study music at Kingston Polytechnic and Exeter University, where she studied clarinet, viola and piano. After completing her teacher training, she came to Nottingham to teach woodwind for the Nottinghamshire music service. She currently plays for several local and East Midland orchestras. Recently, after 35 years working for the music service, she has taken early retirement to concentrate on her freelance work, teaching woodwind, upper strings and keyboard. This has also given her the time to indulge her 2 passions-dogs and caravans!
