Cedar Falls Teacher Feature: Lora Heit

Lora HeitLora is a piano instructor at West Music Cedar Falls, and she brings nearly 40 years of experience with her to our lesson studios! She began playing the organ in elementary school and continued studying music through high school and college. She obtained her music education degree from the University of Northern Iowa. She previously taught private lessons, was a substitute teacher in the area, and taught music and chorus in local schools as well.

She has always been very involved in church music throughout the years. Since, 2003 she has been directing a church choir that consists of members ages 10-18. They enjoy learning new contemporary music and leading others in services through the
joy of music.

Her favorite thing about teaching is when a student masters something new and she gets to see the joy on their face. She enjoys helping others experience the thrill of learning and guiding them in being able to express themselves through music. She also enjoys performances where her students get to showcase their accomplishments.

This summer, Lora and her husband, Tom, celebrated their 45th wedding anniversary. They also traveled to Quebec, Canada and learned some French and history from the area. She enjoys spending time with her five grandchildren who are between the ages of 1 to 5. She also enjoys gardening, riding her bike, and reading.
