I play trombone in the best youth jazz band in the world, The Crescent Super Band. Last year, I was the third chair trombone for a world class Latin Jazz band, La Onda Caribena. I was also selected to be the tenor and bass trombonist for one the best youth orchestras in the nation, Lyceum Philharmonic Orchestra. I am the lead trombone in several high school bands, including the Riverton High Symphonic Band, and Riverton High Varsity Jazz Band. I have played the trombone with the ska band Fumbled Punt. I played the trombone and sang with the Notable Youth Foundation’s “Prodigy” band.

I am one of the drum majors for the 2010 Summer and Fall seasons of the Riverton High School Marching Band (class 4A). During the 2009 Marching Band season, I played baritone for the Riverton High School Marching Band.

I am also on the Riverton High School Senior Winterguard, which competes in class SIA. Last year I was on the Riverton High School Junior Winterguard. We competed in class SRAA and we took 2nd place in State Championships during the 2010 season.

I just wanted to drop a note to you and tell you thank you. My life was changed forever the moment I walked into your studio 25 years ago. I have often wished over the years that I could come in and have a voice lesson from you…living out of the state doesn’t make it possible, but know that you are forever a part of my voice. I wanted to tell you that I just released my first solo EP. I have been on many people’s albums and projects over the years, but never done my own. It is a Christmas EP of original songs that a friend and I wrote. I would love to have you listen to them. My facebook page has the songs on there. It will be on the music tab on the side.
You are my mentor and I wanted to share with you. God bless you and your family.

Most sincerely,
Heather Elkington Shepherd
