Natasha is a performer, arranger, educator, and technician based out of St. John's, Newfoundland. She is the owner/operator of local up-and-coming production company, Hartery Music House, as well as the General Manager of Jazz East Big Band. Hailing from Stephenville, she has a diploma in Recording Arts from College of the North Atlantic, an Honours Degree in Jazz Performance from St. FX University, as well as a degree in Music Education from Memorial University of Newfoundland.
You may have seen her around St. John's performing with Eastern Owl, Doctor Androbox, and Jazz East Big Band, as well side-work with dozens of other short-term projects, including arranging and conducting Shallaway Youth Choir, Ladycove Women's Choir, or in Memorial University's Chamber Music for Youth and Junior Band Week programs. She is known by many as an experienced and professional "jill-of-all-trades" in the arts. Natasha is currently working on her first solo project, which is generously supported by MusicNL!
She owes a great deal of her success to the mentorship from the late and great Sara..h MacDonald Anderson, who taught her from a young age to "love the art in you, and not the 'you' in art".
