Heidi Swedberg

Heidi Swedberg is passionate about people, which is why she loves the ukulele- the people’s instrument.   Encouraging all ages to engage and connect through music, she teaches, writes, lectures and performs for the youngest children to older adults.

She has been a performer for more than 30 years, working in music, film and television, and is known for her role as “Susan” on Seinfeld.  Heidi is a contributing editor at Ukulele Magazine, where she writes about community and connectedness, and has published recordings and instructional books, including Color-Along Ukulele: a Method Book for those Drawn to Play  and ‘Tis the Season for ‘Ukulele, which includes fresh holiday songs from around the world in an old-fashioned format.

Born in Hawaii, her first ukulele came from the Easter Bunny when she was 5 years old.  Her family relocated to New Mexico, the place she considers home. Heidi has helped start uke programs internationally: in schools, hospitals, orphanages, churches and libraries. She loves making new friends while performing and teaching at music festivals around the globe.
