Heidi Breyer Full Bio

“As children we perceive music very physically and allow it to carry us away to a different place…these are our first experiential, unsung emotions”.

“As adults music enables a conscious transformation. If we just let it, it can calm, excite, heal, release, lift us up…and carry us to wherever we want to go…”

Heidi Breyer’s first brush with music was at the tender age of two, on the stage of a small, English nursery school. There, wearing a paper flower petal skirt, she danced beyond the end of the music and for Heidi, the rest of world ceased to exist; whether through teaching, learning, composing, performing or listening Heidi believes music can transform.

Since that early age Heidi’s life was inextricably linked to music through dance, drama and music study at the Arts Educational School in Hertfordshire, UK and later at Trinity College of Music in London. Following a career in the family business, Heidi immersed herself in music once again teaching piano, performing recitals, accompanying chamber and choral groups and playing the church organ. In the last five years she experienced a musical awakening and followed her deep passion for writing music resulting in 3 award winning albums, a fourth released earlier this year (2015)…

In January this year, Heidi Breyer released her fourth album, Letters From Far Away. It is a double piano solo and piano instrumental featuring an electic mix of beautiful and gutsy pieces showcasing her depth of emotion, range of technique and most importantly conveying the love story behind the title. The album is receiving worldwide acclaim and will be entered into 5 categories in the forth coming 58th Grammy Awards.

Winner of ZMR Best Instrumental Piano Album 2012, ZMR Best Instrumental Piano Album 2010 , ZMR Best New Artist 2010 and nominated ZMR Best Holiday Album 2011.
