Meet Dhyani Heath
Dhyani Heath enjoys a versatile musical career with solo, chamber music, and orchestral performances worldwide. From early music performances on historical instruments through collaborations with contemporary composers, Ms. Heath strives to reach artistic beauty and harmony, exploring the full sound spectrum of the violin.
Ms. Heath started her violin studies at the tender age of 7 with Pavel Feldman in Montreal, Canada. At the age of 16 she and her family relocated to Salzburg (Austria) as she was invited to study with the famous pedagogue Igor Ozim at the Mozarteum University. She holds a master’s degree in Violin Performance from Yale University, where she was a recipient of the Denis Adams Scholarship, the Phipps White Scholarship, and the Broadus Earle prize for “outstanding violinists” while studying with Hyo Kang. She also holds a second master’s Degree in Violin Performance from the Paris Conservatoire, under the tutelage of professor Michael Hentz.
During her years as a student Ms. Heath furthered her musical experiences by taking part in several international music festivals, including the International Mozarteum Summer Academy (Austria), the Music Academy of the West (USA), the Vermont Mozart Festival (USA), and the Encuentro de Música Festival in Santander (Spain), to name a few.
Fluent in five languages (English, German, French, Chinese, and Indonesian), Ms. Heath also enjoys sharing her knowledge and passion for music with serious violin students of all ages and nationalities. Her teaching philosophy focuses on guiding students through the technical and interpretative principles of violin playing, while allowing them to develop individually into their own sense of style and expression.
Upcoming and past performances include concerts in France, Germany, Austria, Spain, Canada, and the United States.
Ms. Heath currently lives in Paris as a Harriet Hale Woolley Scholar.
