Piano Keys

My name is Heidi Martin. Welcome to my page.

I am a musician and vocalist and have played several musical instruments for most of my life.  I have always had a love for singing and playing music and a passion for teaching it to children.  I began teaching private piano lessons from my home over 30 years ago and have successfully helped hundreds of children over the years to gain the same love that I have for music and to be able to successfully play and enjoy the piano.  I have held piano recitals semiannually for my students and families. I have taught ten years of music preschool classes where I developed my own curriculum where each class was filled with fun and joy and music and movement. Many of my music preschool students loved the class so much, they became my piano students when they were old enough. I began substitute teaching for Cherry Creek Schools in January of 2022, and many of the music teachers now request me by name to cover their music classes when they are away.   I was recently selected to be the long-term music sub at Greenwood Elementary from April until the end of the school year, and I can't wait!  My dream job is teaching elementary music classes.  It combines the two things I am best at and love most: music, and teaching it to children.

My philosophy on childhood music education

I believe an elementary music teacher should bring light and laughter and fun as they are teaching children music.  Elementary music should be hands on and engaging and full of movement, playing instruments, singing, and learning about music at an age-appropriate level.  My goal is to help children develop an interest in and love for music education by experiencing the joy that music can bring.  I bring years of ideas and experience and energy and learned patience with me.  My hope is to make music integrated arts the

“looked forward to” time of their day.


The value of incorporating an excellent music program into a child's education cannot be understated. There is a heap of incontestable research showing that an education rich in music improves students' cognitive function and academic performance, and my goal is to provide the best music program your elementary school has ever seen.

As An Elementary Music Teacher I am:




Patient, patient, patient
