Born in 1978, she studies oboe at the CNR de Rueil-Malmaison with Daniel Arrignon (First Prize in 1999), before spending three years perfecting her skills with Heinz Holliger at the Stattlische Hochschule für Musik in Freiburg. Keen to develop her knowledge of historical instruments, she also took part in an advanced course in baroque oboe with Ann-Kathrin Brügemann at the CNR in Strasbourg.

Holder of a “Certificate of Aptitude” as an oboe teacher, Heidi Braesch has taught at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Départemental de Colmar, at the Conservatoire Henri Dutilleux du Grand Belfort, and since April 2020 at the Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional Pierre Cochereau de Nice, all the while devoting herself to chamber music.

She has also been oboist with Ensemble Linéa (Strasbourg), specializing in the contemporary repertoire, since 2002.
