Amanda is a Lyric soprano whose repertoire varies from classical and modern art songs, lieder, grand opera arias, cabaret songs and Jazz standards. Amanda has experience teaching students age 8 and up. In the 2010-11 year she was the recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship to Helsinki, Finland, where she studied classical Finnish vocal repertoire, notably the songs of romantic composers Merikanto, Kuula, Sibelius, Melartin, and Madetoja.  She was an exchange student at the Sibelius academy, where she was a voice student of soprano Outi Kahkonen.  She participated in classes with  renowned pianists Collin Hansen and Ilmo Ranta.  She also had the opportunity to sing in master classes with acclaimed coaches Markus Lehtinen and Christian Thompson.  Amanda sang in two recitals at Sibelius Academy, one featuring German repertoire by Wolf, and one featuring Finnish songs.  She also prepared a 40 minute program of Finnish repertoire highlighting the unique national styles evident in Finnish vocal music, and exploring the rich textures, and deep poetic intensity of the Finnish language.  The culmination of her Fulbright grant project was the performance of two vocal recitals held in Helsinki at the Swedish Krystuskyrkan, and then repeated to much acclaim in Stockholm at the Sankta Eugenia Kyrkan. Amanda achieved her Masters degree in Vocal Performance from Boston University under the tutelage of Dr. Sarah Arneson in 2010, and her Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Michigan in 2008 where she was a student of internationally renowned soprano Shirley Verrett.   Recent roles include Nella in Puccini's Gianni Schicchi and Geraldine in A Hand of Bridgewith Boston University Opera Theatre.

Amanda has also studied in Italy for a spring semester, where she was a part of the University of Michigan Opera Florence young artist program.  She appeared in three concerts, including one in the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence where she sang works by Bellini, and 2 scenes performances in one of the oldest working villas in Florence, the Villa Corsi Salvati.  She worked with renowned artists such as Donna Brunsma previously with Lyric Opera of Chicago, and Joyce Fieldsend from Opera Fenice in Venice, and Gianni Fabbrini from Luigi Cherubini Conservatory in Florence.  Amanda has a deep love of sacred music and has performed extensively as a soloist with orchestra for some of the most famous pieces of the sacred liturgy, including solos in Mozart'sCoronation Mass, John Rutter's Requiem, Vivaldi's Gloria, Schubert's Mass in G, with Eliot Philharmonic;  Mozart's Missa Brevis with the Rockland Choral Society, and Faure'sRequiem and Purcell's O Come ye sons of Art  with Boston University Concert Choir.

After working closely with my students, we invariably develop a special bond of trust and respect. My flute teachers throughout the years have greatly influenced my personal development, so I approach the mentorship of my students with the kind of care that will help them grow throughout many aspects of their lives.

I just recently moved to the Greater Phoenix Area.  I have a very strong passion for singing and bringing music to others.  I have three degrees in opera, but I have worked professionally singing everything from standard ballads to gospel songs. Performing all over the world has given me the opportunity to sing and learn things about other cultures that I would otherwise never have known about.  My most recent accomplishment was singing the leading role of Hoffman in the french opera Les contes d'hoffman in Perieuguex France in the summer of 2012.  I was recently added to the roster as a tenor at the Arizona Opera.  I hope to meet some wonderful new students here in Arizona!

During my time at NEC I was a teachers assistant, assistant to the artistic director, and an office assistant. I worked with the NEC Jazz Youth Orchestra to help students develop aural, and sectional skills. During my breaks from school I assisted at several junior highs and high schools in the east valley. My education in Boston demanded management of a vigorous rehearsal schedule, leadership within music organizations, and countless hours of individual practice and rigorous coursework.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
