Harrison Heard is a Tenor, Voice Teacher, and Photographer based in the Princeton, New Jersey Area.
Harrison was born in Sacramento, California, but was raised with his brother, Oliver, in many different states by my British parents, Sandra and Alex. We lived in California, Texas, Massachusetts, Ohio, and a little bit of time in Ireland. Harrison has always been drawn to art and filled with an anxious desire to create. As a child, this manifested itself as drawing and creating imaginary worlds and characters. To this day he still enjoys drawing and painting in my free time. When he was sixteen he started singing for the first time and fell in love with it.
Before Harrison attended the Interlochen Arts Academy for his last two years of high school where he studied singing with John Bragle, he attended Maumee Valley Country Day School. It was an incredible time of my life where Harrison was surrounded for the first time by other creative types of people in the middle of the woods of Northern Michigan.
For his undergraduate education, he attended Oberlin Conservatory, where he studied with Daune Mahy for his first two years and Salvatore Champagne for his final two. Harrison graduated in May of 2018 with a B.M in Vocal Performance.
Harrison attended Westminster Choir College for his Master’s education, where he studied with Christopher Arneson. Harrison graduated in May of 2020 with an M.M with Distinction in Vocal Pedagogy and Performance.
He currently lives in the Princeton area of New Jersey and continues to study voice with Christopher Arneson.
