Heidi Taylor Fleischbein plays harp, violin, viola, piano, and pipe organ. She began her music training at age three on piano and at the age of six, started on violin with the Point Loma String Project; she began studying harp with Melissa Morgan at seven. At 13, she auditioned for and received an American Guild of Organists scholarship to learn pipe organ. Soon after, at 14, she decided to add viola to her list of instruments. Since then, Heidi has been performing around the nation, competing in various youth competitions, participating in orchestras, teaching private piano, violin, and harp lessons to young students, and performing for private and public events in her hometown of San Diego as a solo and duo harpist.
Among other honors, she has performed at St. Mary’s Cathedral in San Francisco, won first place on organ in the 2013 Jr. Bach Festival, and has accepted invitations to play one of the world’s largest outdoor pipe organs, the world famous Spreckels organ.
Additionally, as a freshman, she performed in the 2016 Fall Honors Recital at Concordia University Irvine. Heidi is a graduate of Dehesa Charter School and a student at Concordia University Irvine as a Music Education major. In her spare time she enjoys swimming and water polo, reading, and spending time with friends and family. Heidi plans to continue her education after graduating, by completing her Masters degree and eventually, her Doctorate as well. Her dream is to be able to share her love of music with others, and help them to experience it in a similar way that she does.
