Heidi Brooks began studying piano at age six with the Suzuki Piano Method. By age 16 Heidi gave her first solo recital at COFAC hall at Western Illinois University. In 2008 she earned a B.M. in Piano Performance from W.I.U. Heidi continued her piano education in 2009 studying briefly with Stefan Kutrzeba in Rzeszow, Poland.
