Aiga Helmer studied voice in the local music school as a child in Bavaria, Germany. She then learned piano and sang in a Youth Choir. Later she studied classical guitar, voice and composition. She married, moved to Canada and when her baby girl arrived, Aiga started composing children's songs for her, recording them on cassettes together with poetry. She was a member of the Calgary Early
Music Society for over 20 years and directed another ensemble group consisting of recorders, guitar and other instruments. For both groups she arranged the music, organized concerts, hired choirs and soloists for church performances, and performed. Proceeds for these concerts went to the Calgary Soup Kitchen. She says, "and then I found the HARP at age 63. Now I knew I had found my Heaven!"
