Biography

Born into a Melbourne musical family in 1974, Heywood was acknowledged to be a child prodigy giving his first public performance at five after commencing musical studies at the age of four. He has since performed on thousands of occasions ranging from a celebrated recital in the Sydney Opera House at the age of 17 to touring in venues reading like an encyclopaedia of the world’s most famous organs from the largest pipe organ in New York City to Windsor Castle. He enjoys an outstanding reputation as one of the world’s finest concert organists.

As the first and only Australian musician in history to ever live as a professional concert organist, Heywood is celebrated as “an acknowledged master” for his unique ability to make the greatest music of all time come alive on the King of Instruments. He has an ever-growing repertoire of over 5,000 works.

Since 1994, Heywood has also performed more concerts in Australia than any other organist, maintaining a demanding schedule around the country performing to thousands each year. Also a talented and prolific transcriber, Heywood’s published solo concert organ arrangements of the most famous classical and romantic music are performed by organists around the world.

Regularly inaugurating new and restored organs, in 2001 he performed the opening solo concert on the largest musical instrument in the southern hemisphere – the Grand Concert Organ in the Melbourne Town Hall.
