Heather Bouton

Drum Kit and Percussion

Heather's been playing drums since the age of 10.  Heather started out like many of the students she teaches, in 5th grade school band. Under Burlington Central's director Gene Vanden Bosch, she continued playing in high school concert, marching, and jazz band.  "Mr. Vanden Bosch brought out the best in me and helped me to realize that music was something I enjoyed and was good at."  After high school, Heather studied at Elgin Community College, Northern Illinois University, and DePaul University School of Music where she has made a name for herself as a well-rounded percussionist.  Playing in various bands and combos of all styles, Heather encourages her students to be versatile and dynamic players
