Heidi Astle Worsham grew up in a house filled with music. At the age of six she began piano lessons with her older sister but soon became a student of Katherine Svistoonoff and later world renowned artist, Natsuki Fukasawa. Being one of the youngest students to be admitted into Fukasawa’s studio, Heidi gained a deep understanding of tone, artistry, and musicality. She was a frequent prize winner in the Memorial Scholarship Competition, the Auburn Youth Symphony Young Artist Competition, and the U.S. Open Piano Competition.

Being the 5th in her family to earn a music degree from Brigham Young University, she studied with Dr. Irene Peery-Fox and quickly rose to the top as she was inspired by piano music every day. She was the recipient of the prestigious Reid Nibley Piano Scholarship for the 2011-2012 school year, played in master classes with guest artists, was an MTNA officer for the school, and was asked to perform at the BYU’s Convocation ceremony.

Heidi is now pursuing her Master’s degree at the University of Iowa and hopes to eventually receive a Doctor of Musical Arts degree, allowing her to teach at the university level. She has a passion for teaching all ages and guarantees a fun and enjoyable learning environment coupled with marked progress and success. 

Along with piano, she loves to sing and was a member of BYU’s top touring choir, the BYU Singers. Heidi loves people, reading, learning, spending time with family, playing sports (was Captain of her high school Varsity Basketball team), telling jokes, and helping people learn.
