She completed her Bachelor’s degree of Music Education at the University of Northwestern – St. Paul, and currently has her own private string studio in the north metro where she teaches a wide range of ages and abilities. Before joining GTCYS, Ms. Hebert served on the organization’s Teacher Advisory Council. Ms. Hebert resides in Andover with her husband, Michael, and three children.
“GTCYS ignited a passion in me for orchestra that I didn’t know existed. When I sat down in my first GTCYS rehearsal in 8th grade, I knew I had found my place. I am thrilled to see this come full circle, and I look forward to sharing my passion, expectations for excellence, and artistry with young musicians.”
