Heather Baker

IVA Ambassador

Heather has studied voice and the teaching of voice continually since 2001, working with some of the world’s greatest vocal experts to perfect her knowledge and teaching abilities. She is a Mentor Teacher and Ambassador with IVA, and she has a love of sharing her knowledge with teachers and singers.

Heather runs a large vocal studio in the UK and has several other IVA Teachers working for her, training singers of all ages, abilities, and styles. Her private client list includes gigging musicians, songwriters, television personalities, journalists, signed artists, MOBO Award and Mercury Award nominees, Malta Music Award winners, and a vast selection of amateur singers. She has been consulted for nationwide music industry books and local news articles. She has taught at performing arts institutes in the UK, Malta, and Israel. For two years, she lectured regularly at The Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts (LIPA) on the music course. Heather has also taught at the Institute for Vocal Advancement’s teachers conferences (IVACONs) in California, Edinburgh, and Vienna.

Heather also runs a contemporary choir business and firmly believes that singing is for everyone—a topic that she will be expanding on in a TED talk in 2019. She is an energetic and enthusiastic teacher and loves supporting others in their musical and teaching journeys. She has a particular interest in business-building, and she is always happy to share her experience in this area.
