Overview:
I am an experienced, enthusiastic music instructor, who received a Bachelor of Music Education from the University of Massachusetts in voice and piano.  I have appeared around the world as a soloist singing jazz and pop, places including the Blue Note, NYC, Maui, Key West, Paris, Rome, Rio de Janeiro, Budapest, Phuket, Sydney, Australia.  I have also sung in ensemble groups including the Masterworks Chorale, NYC, the Verdi Opera Chorus of Southern California.  I have sung in Mandarin Chinese, Brazillian Portuguese, French, Italian and Spanish. Currently, I volunteer at the Senior Center leading/accompanying the Sing-Alongs doing songs from the early 1900's up to the present.
EXPERIENCE
I have been teaching over 25 years.  After graduating, I taught elementary music in public schools in Massachusetts.  Then, moving to NYC, I taught private voice and piano lessons in my studio. Living in LA, I continued with my private practice.  And finally, in Orange County, I have taught after school group piano classes, and currently, teach private voice and piano lessons. In conjunction with my teaching skills, I have excellent communication skills and patience and work well with children; and all ages are welcome!
METHODS USED
Music is an important part of education, and it also has many benefits including aiding in the development of cognitive and motor skills. Each student is unique; so I customize the lessons and repertoire to suit each student, utilizing method books and sometimes popular songs, and always including music theory, the foundation. For piano lessons, I like the Alfred series because they include theory and notespelling along with songs. They have books for every level, from 4 years old to adult. I also have supplement materials and music when appropriate. If the student is a transfer student, I try to keep them in the same book series if they have already purchased books. For singing, we start out with warm-ups and then work on songs of their choosing or mine if they want some advice. We work on breath, pitch, tone, word pronunciation, expression.
LESSON STYLE
Singing and/or learning an instrument is exciting and rewarding.  It is a skill that lasts a lifetime. Therefore, I feel it's important to make learning fun, exciting and rewarding so that each student will be challenged and have a sense of accomplishment and desire to progress. I gear the lessons to each student depending on their needs. It is a relaxed, fun environment. Sometimes I incorporate teaching games in the lesson. They advance at their own pace. I hold two recitals a year to give students a chance to perform. I feel it's an important part of education in helping with building self-esteem and self-confidence, and great for the parents!

Amber has been teaching my daughter for about six months and has helped her make great progress. She's teaching her proper technique, rhythm, how to read music, and more. She is a great teacher.

Taking voice lesson with Amber is a real treat! While she is serious in teaching me how to sing correctly, how to interpret the music, she is also a lot of fun to work with. She would act to the music to show me the difference in singing a Broadway musical versus singing a classical Italian song. She teaches me how to pronounce English, Italian and Latin correctly. I really enjoy taking voice lesson from her. ~ Lily Tu

I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Amber and working with her today. I was immediately put at ease - Amber made me feel welcome, accepted and was incredibly helpful to me today, as I am auditioning on Sunday to sing as a soloist at my church! I have great exercises to strengthen my diaphragm, and she gave really good instruction regarding how to get the correct sound for each voice range. I am looking forward to meeting with her again, and continuing my studies under Amber.
