Amanda M.

Flowood, MS

About Amanda

Hi,
My name is Mandy and I'm excited to be a part of TakeLessons.com for several reasons:
1) because it led you here to find out more about me and the possibility of beginning lessons with me 2) I b
elieve TakeLessons.com is a great resource to finding highly qualified musicians in your area and 3) because if you do decide to take lessons with me through TakeLessons.com they will make sure that I am doing my part to ensure a positive and effective music experience.
Before I get into my credentials I would like to just share a little bit about myself. I grew up here, in the Jackson area, and in fact have lived in the same house my whole life- the same house where lessons will be held. The best way to get to the music parlor is through the front door.
My musical studies began at the age of 8 when I saw for the first time a harpist at a wedding. I pleaded with my parents to let me learn how to play the harp but, being the wise parents that they are, told me if I wanted to learn to play an instrument I would have to begin on the piano because the piano builds a solid musical foundation. Now, as much as I don't want to admit it, my parents were usually right and this was no exception.
I took piano lessons for eight years until I got a harp at the age of 16. Two years later I went off to college to get a Bachelors degree in music from LSU, and four years after that I moved to Texas to get my Masters degree in music from University of North Texas. Now, I'm excited to be back in Jackson offering both piano and harp lessons.
I have experience teaching students ranging from age 7-80 and working on musical genres ranging from Classical to Pop and Celtic to Country. I tend to work well with teenagers and young adults.
I perform with the Mississippi Symphony, am an adjunct music professor at Belhaven University, and I am President of the MS chapter of the American Harp Association.
I have performed for the first lady of Texas, Anita Perry, owner of the Cowboys Jerry Jones, and legendary football player Emmitt Smith, and I have performed with Tim McGraw.
Although I do a lot of performing, teaching is where my heart is. My students challenge me to be a better musician so that I am at my best and constantly working to be a better musician and teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
My main goal in a lesson is to make sure my students are enjoying their time spent in the lesson. Learning to play an instrument is challenging and every student is unique. With this in mind, it is my goal to make sure the student is always relaxed and comfortable while playing. It is important to discipline the student in proper technique, theory and performance practice. I will do my part to make sure students do not feel overwhelmed or irritated-learning music should be fun!
Depending on what musical knowledge the students already possesses, I will decide on the best curriculum and make assignments based out the books chosen. It is important that the student learn standard repertoire, however, I am open to working on any genre of music that interests the student.
Also, it is important for me to know how the students wish to use his or her talent. By knowing the direction the student wishes to take I can best guide their path to becoming the musician he or she wants to be.
Ultimately, it is my desire to foster the love of the instrument by providing students with performance opportunities, expanding the student's knowledge of the instrument, and creating a positive learning experience.

Amulet S.

Jackson, MS

About Amulet

Hi! My name is Amulet and I have been teaching private flute lessons for 3+ years now. I have experience teaching young beginners through advanced high school students.

Teaching is a rewarding jou
rney with every student. I am passionate about putting the “fun” in FUNdamentals, securing internal pulse, expanding musicality, and giving my students a lesson environment that nourishes growth.

My training includes a Master of Music degree from the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University and a Bachelor of Music degree from San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Also, I am a graduate of the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan.

Recently, I won the Principal Flute position with Mississippi Symphony Orchestra. I am very excited to be joining MSO, but I am also excited to have learn from my new students too. That's right, I am excited about YOU! Teaching is a learning experience for both student and teacher and I look forward to our time together.

6 Tips for Singing and Playing the Piano at the Same Time
Artists like Billy Joel and Elton John may make it look effortless, but singing and playing the piano at the same time takes time and practice to truly master! Understandably, it’s difficult because you’re multitasking by "playing" two instruments simultaneously – your voice and the piano. It’s easy to lose concentration on one, while the other goes a little off; if you focus on your voice, you might mess up the timing with your fingers, and should you pay too much attention to the piano key
