Poker has been a passion of mine from before I was legally able to play for money and have hundreds of thousands of hands played in my lifetime. I have gone from novice player to consistently profiting in micro, low, and mid stakes games and I am extremely confident I can help you do the same. I will listen to you for exactly what kind of experience you want from my poker coaching and if you don't know, we can try a few things like hand histories, database analyses, or just some simple situational practice.

With Broadway singing, I believe acting is part of singing. You're telling a story and must convey that story through song. We'll work on breath control, pitch, tone, vocal range, projection, enunciation, body language. The lessons start with warm-up vocalizing. Then, we work on songs you'd like to learn. I can also suggest some. Each student is unique; so your lessons and repertoire are customized to suit your needs. Also, included with your lessons are the opportunity to perform in recitals twice a year, email support, weekly lesson notes, progress reports, recordings, performance parties.

About Amber

You will love your lessons with me and benefit from my teaching experience of over 25 years and my Bachelor of Music Education degree from the University of Massachusetts.

I'm an adult piano student of Amber's at the beginners level. I started taking lessons in September 2020 and am making steady progress under her instruction. She is very patient and encouraging and has helped me to build confidence as a piano student. I'm enjoying my lessons with Amber and would definitely recommend her to others looking for a piano teacher.
Musa A.
Amber was patient and nice. Her class was very boring for my 6 year old. He lost interest almost immediately but seemed to be very enthusiastic with others when he works on piano.

Best instructor for my kids 100% Rene has the patience and has taught my 5yr and 8yr old kids to play guitar. They have shown good progress and improvement every session. Rene finds common ground with the student to make sure there is a connection. My kids have enjoyed their lessons and look forward to continuing sessions for sure. Thank you Rene!

Kristen really has been so helpful! I feel much more confident when walking into auditions. On top of helping me fine tune songs, and make artistic decisions, she has also been super willing to help me pick songs for auditions and really make my experience what I need from her.

I honed my teaching skills at Phillips Exeter Academy, one of the world’s most selective private schools. In their intensive pre-college program for students grades 7 to 12, I taught core writing seminars in “The Craft of the Essay” and “Writing Process” as well as workshops focused on the college essay. Since 2008, I have worked 1-on-1 with talented students across the United States and around the world to develop their writing skills.

Every student deserves a dedicated mentor to help them master the writing process—and discover how writing can further their actual passions and purpose. Your writing class is totally customized to your writing goals and unique interests. Together, we plan lessons that develop your skills and passions in tandem.

I love transforming students into vibrant, fearless writers! Schools do a terrible job of teaching writing. Even the best schools and most dedicated English teachers fail to provide good writing instruction. Why? Most teachers are passionate readers of literature, but they don't actually enjoy w

How to Become a Stage Actor: What Theater Students Need to Know

I’ve said it once and I will say it again, we are all actors by nature! Anyone can be an actor if given the proper tools and training.  There are ways to become a stronger stage actor and as performers we should always be learning and growing. When speaking to new actors, I often quote Michael Shurtleff, the author of my favorite acting text, “Audition”. He once said, “Use what you know. Don't worry about what you don't know.”  This couldn’t be more true! Acting is reacting and …
