About Amber

Growing up in Denver, I had a huge desire for singing and performing. By age 14, I was taking weekly singing & piano lessons, was acting constantly in local productions-many times getting the lead role. Some of the productions I acted in: The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy), Camelot, Anything Goes (Reno Sweeney), How to Succeed in Business (Smitty), Carousel, Oklahoma, Les Miserables, and Oliver (Nancy.) I received a 4-year scholarship to the Conservatory of Music in Stockton, CA. at the University of the Pacific. Upon graduation, I entered graduate school at the University of North Texas to continue my singing and piano studies, along with music theory, history, and musical video production. Upon graduating UNT, I was chosen among 200 performing arts majors to be the featured soloist at ...

Amber was a great teacher, she was patient with me and my wife when we had trouble and helped us stay on task. We learned basic French faster than I expected.

Amber is our church's music director and as a member of the worship team I have had the opportunity to observe her interact with students, including my wife. Needless to say, I was quite impressed with her abilities. But, I didn't realize the scope of her wonderful expertise until I began taking voice lessons from her. The awesome thing about Amber is her ability to interact with the student on the student's level. In other words, Amber has the wonderful ability of sharing her musical expertise by teaching in such a gentle, encouraging and patient manner that makes taking lessons from her a joy and privilege. Although, her knowledge of music is second to none, she teaches in such a gracious manner that the student doesn't feel like they are being talked-down-to.

Amber has changed the way I sing in front of people by teaching me to use my diaphragm more for air. I play numerous string instruments now in church along with Amber. She has helped me decipher the keys in music as well as coordinate my playing skills in timing. I have been playing music for over fifty years and I am still learning thanks to Amber. I personally recommend as an instructor for any beginner or a sound musician.
Samara K. Miami Beach, FL

In our sessions, I pull from the various experiences and methods I have gathered as a global performance artist and teacher from the past 20 years! I also utilize what I have learned as a working actor in TV, Film, and Theatre to teach you about authentic expression and communication. My approach is encouraging and gentle, as I focus on bringing to light what makes you unique and fascinating instead of aiming to mimic someone else's performance style. I work both technically as well as in a poetic, artistic, and abstract sense. The combination of these approaches helps guide me in what you best respond to, and also provides multiple avenues in which you can amass your full potential as an artist. I am excited to help you reach your goals in Acting!

I really did learn so much in every single one of my lessons with Samara! From Acting Technique to character work, to scene study, to how to nail comedy and drama, to classical text, and not to mention the helpful breath work and insanely fun exercises and warm-ups. Samara is the the absolute kindest, most compassionate, informative, hilarious, and most importantly - talented- not only acting coach, but teacher in general that I have ever spent time with. One of her talents is for creating a safe environment to work and grow in, something that I have found to be very rare amongst acting classes in general. I was excited literally everyday for my lessons, especially because I recognized how much hard work and dedication she put into it them herself.

Samara is the absolute best acting teacher I have had, and I’m so happy and thankful to have had the pleasure of being her student!
