I specialize in Singing stage performance.
Being able to sing well is not enough to perform well.
Student needs to bring to stage at least 85% of what he is able to do in the classroom. Better - 150%.
In my class students meet in small groups, perorm in front of each other, and then we exchange notes. We do 2-3 rounds of performing and discussing to make sure it all works.
In my classroom student learns how get rid of stage fright, how to make stressful situation to work for his advantage, not to stand in a way of best performance.
I also use Stanislavsky acting method for singing performance.

In our first lesson, I quickly noticed her enthusiasm in her teaching. I felt very comfortable singing with her and would definitely recommend her.
Kellie
We love Amanda and Keith. They are energetic, enthusiastic, patient, and knowledgeable. We started lessons because of my daughter's interest in singing, and even at only 10, we've seen huge improvements in her presentation and performance since working with Amanda. It's been a blessing to watch her talents being developed in a caring environment.
Brittany
My son recently got into singing he loves to sing around the house so we decided to explore it. He have done 5 lessons with Amanda and my son loves it.. he comes home singing what they practiced on, he has learned a lot. When he sees someone else in the house singing he try’s to correct us .. Amanda is very nice and very helpful and the communication is amazing!!
