She is active as a soloist, performing in a variety of venues throughout the Pittsburgh region.
An ardent advocate of early music and historical performance, Amanda also plays the baroque flute. She has performed in masterclasses for internationally known baroque flutists Kim Pineda, Janet See, and Barthold Kuijken.

My name is Cara, a college graduate of Grove City College with a Bachelor's Degree in Music. I've played flute for 15 years and piano for 10. I've been teaching for 3 years, and I absolutely love it. I love music and I love teaching anyone who is interested to learn about it! From the basics to the notes on the staff, to the circle of fifths and complicated theory, i would love to teach all aspects of music. I understand that everyone has different tastes in music, so i love doing all different styles. Classical, Pop, Broadway, Oldies, you name it. If you're a beginner, or you've been playing for a few years, we can find where you are and get you started right away! I hope you will give me a chance :)

I am currently a junior flute performance student at Duquesne University, and I study with Damian Bursill-Hall of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. I am a former student of Rhian Kenny's, also of the PSO. I currently do a lot of freelance playing with my chamber group, the Duquesne Woodwind Trio, and by myself. I am an alumni of the Pittsburgh Youth Symphony Orchestra, and a member of the Duquesne Symphony Orchestra, Duquesne Wind Symphony, and multiple chamber ensembles. I have attended the Le Domaine Forget International Music Academy in Montreal, Orford Arts Center in Orford, QC, Advanced Chamber Music Seminar, West Virginia University Flute Festival, the Youngstown University Flute Festival, and will be attending the Consummate Flutist at Carnegie Mellon University in a few weeks with Jeanne Baxtresser and Jim Walker. I have studied in masterclass with flutists including Emmanuel Pahud, Robert Langevin, Mathieu Dufour, Denis Bluteau, Lorna Mcghee, and many others. I have received 1st place in Butler Symphony Orchestra's 2013 Young Artist Concerto Competition, a recent winner in the Tuesday Musical Society Scholarship Competition, second place in Duquesne University's annual Wind Concerto Competition, and 2nd place in the Women's Advisory Board Scholarship Competition. I have always been a leader, and with a kind, very encouraging approach to teaching, I am able to teach my students how to become the best player that they can be. I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge with other flutists.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
