Amanda is an amazing musician. She is very patient with my 5 year old who has a little trouble staying focused and has stayed very professional while doing so. I totally recommend Amanda to anyone looking for quality music lessons. We love her!!!
Amanda is an amazing teacher. She taught my son's piano a year and a half, my son and I both like her so much. She has a lot of passion and different teach style and she love kids. We really miss her so much.Hope she can come back again.
Amanda was the first guitar teacher our son had and she not only taught him the basics of guitar she also instilled in him the importance of practice. Amanda was so willing to let our son follow his own intrigue to learn new songs and took the time to record samples for him to practice with. She was dedicated and positive and his playing improved dramatically. There was not a time when he did not want to go to a lesson with Amanda. Amanda wanted our son to succeed and pushed when needed but also praised and recognized his effort. We miss her!
She is great. Patient, kind, a lot of fun. She makes might be getting lessons so enjoyable and I'm learning so much. I Recommend her to all ages and all skill levels.
My daughter took lessons with Amanda for 2 years before she moved away. She taught my daughter how to play the guitar, sing, music theory and recording programs, she helped her with piano and ukulele at times too. She is an absolutely phenomenal musician and teacher. She is very professional and organized, I loved that she would email me updates and videos from the lessons. I love that she is technologically inclined, she utilizes and shows students useful Music technology! She has a very positive attitude and she was very inspirational for my daughter! She is fun but firm, she always goes above and beyond to always puts her student's needs first. Amanda has helped my daughter prepare for countless shows and auditions and provided her with her very first performance opportunities that I know she will never forget! She has been such a blessing in my daughters life and we are so thankful to have had the opportunity to learn from her and get to know her! I can not say enough wonderful things about her!
My family has known Amanda for about 5 years, when she started to teach my oldest son (then 5 years old) music. I have no musical background and neither does my wife. About 2 years ago, she began to teach my daughter (then 5 years old) music. My son and daughter are very different and they learn very differently. A lot of people have commented on how great of a musician she is, which is very true. Amanda is very talented indeed. However, what makes her a truly remarkable music teacher is her TEACHING ability. I know very skilled artists and professionals who are great at whatever it is that they do, but find it difficult to teach. A completely different set of skills. In my opinion, I am more impressed with her teaching skills and her ability to teach in a variety of ways. This became apparent when I saw her with both my son and daughter, catering to their individual abilities and needs. Combine this with Amanda’s caring, compassionate, heart and you have a rare combination of attributes. She became a mentor to both our kids and we were all heartbroken when she left California, although we completely understood her reasons. Both of my children’s musical abilities grew and even more important, it kindled a love and appreciation of music for both of them. Anyone with kids will be lucky to have her as a teacher, mentor, and friend.
Aimee Art Productions: Building Self-Esteem and Literacy Through the Arts, Owner/Founder/Artistic Director Amanda is amazing! She started working with us when she was only 24 and she already played 7 instruments and was a natural teacher! Since that time I have seen her grow into a master teacher at a very young age, and inspire children of all ages in everything from singing to playing piano, guitar, bass, and ukulele, and writing songs, singing and recording rock songs, making music videos, travelling around the world through song, and even doing musical theatre! Amanda is a multi-talented, multi-faceted, multi-literate musician who can play and teach many musical styles and many learning styles. She is kinesthetic, auditory, and visual, highly creative, intuitive, kind and gentle with her students, and very encouraging. Amanda is also an experienced musician in her own right, and has composed, toured, gigged, and traveled extensively, sharing her gifts with the world. Any student, family or school will be lucky to have Amanda! I am excited to see what she does next!
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.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
