Vallejo, CA

View Full Profile

Award nominated singer-songwriter (wife and mom) with over 20 years experience available to teach eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of skills, focusing on self-expression and technique. I specialize in pop, folk, rock, blues and country styles. Let's have fun making music!

About Amber
I have been a performing singer-songwriter/graphic artist for 15+ years have written roughly 200 original songs, released several CDs and performed hundreds of shows. Music has been an important part of my life and has given me enormous amounts of joy and growth as an individual. Both of my parents are musicians and I was fortunate to have their support and guidance in addition to formal and informal training from various musicians over the years but mostly, I developed my style of playing from many hours of playing and experimenting. I am excited to have the opportunity to teach others the tools needed to start their own journey in music.

- Specialties -
Guitar, Piano, Songwriting: Folk, Rock, Blues & Country.

- Lesson Details -
I am both easy going and goal oriented. I want my students to get the most out of their lessons and
enjoy every minute. Ideally, within 6 months, the student should know and be able to play major and minor chords (instruments only), understand basic music notation, time signatures, and be able to follow basic sheet music (results will vary with each student). Students are encouraged to name songs that they wish to learn to keep them excited and interested in learning. Emphasis will be on accuracy, performance techniques and having fun!

- Equipment Needed -
Each student needs a guitar or piano/keyboard and a 3 ring binder as well as a music book (book not required for voice). I provide both for $15. I recommend supporting local music stores before going to the big chains. I can help with choosing an instrument if needed.

Amber is an excellent instructor.
My granddaughter is 7 years old and her ability to be attentive is limited.
However, Amber is able to maintain my granddaughter's attention. She is patient and work well with the challenging young children.
She promotes interest for the music world, and ensure that her students obtain an awesome experience.

Amber is very knowledgeable on what she does. She is very kind, sweet and professional. Couple of times she adjusted her time for my daughter ‘s availability in a short notice. I will recommend Amber to everyone looking for a piano lesson.

Atlanta, GA
View Full Profile

I have performed on and taught acoustic guitar for nearly 20 years.

I know hundreds of songs so I can always find songs which make beginners into players quickly.

I love soloing. I have several unique techniques I share with more advanced students to enable them to become stronger guitar players and overall musicians.

About David
I grew up in Birmingham, AL, Boston, MA, and Cleveland, OH, and was classically trained on violin in all three cities by members of their respective orchestras. I began studying theory in 7th grade at The Alabama School of Fine Arts. I continued theory lessons while in Boston at the New England Conservatory of Music. I attended Summer music programs at Apple Hill (New Hampshire) and Sewanee (Tennessee) and have extensive experience in orchestra, quartet, and chamber group environments.

Upon graduating Emory university in 1992 I played professionally in Destin, FL as a bassist, guitarist, violinist, and vocalist. I performed as bassist and backing vocalist with "Salty Dog" for nearly a decade. I am the co-founder of the Destin, FL band "Beach Mice." We perform for several weddings, corporate events, and benefits every year. Beach
Mice is also popular on the festival circuit on the Emerald Coast.

I relocated to Atlanta in November of 2013, and currently perform weddings, and at various restaurants and events in the Atlanta area.

I have taught individuals and group lessons on violin, bass, and guitar since 1997 and for several consecutive years at Playground Music in Fort Walton Beach.

I have several videos available on YouTube, and a website which is easily located through a simple Google search.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you fulfill your musical goals and ambitions. Happy Playing - Cheers! dp

David Pretlow can zoom in on increasing technique and write an arrangement of a song you want to play within your playing ability. This is a TEACHER worthy of the name "professor in strings".

Lessons are targeting my weaknesses and explanations are helpful. Parking is tough because of construction and lack of free spaces but that is only temporary.

Fort Wayne, IN

Learn the basics to accompany yourself on rhythm guitar, finger picking and basic chord progression theory. Great for beginners, intermediate players and songwriters.

About Fernando
I am a professional vocalist who regularly performs with orchestras, rock bands, jazz bands and as a singer/songwriter. I teach beginners to professional touring artists and can break down the seemingly complex vocal techniques in simple to understand concepts and exercises. My focus areas are breath, placement and freedom from tension in order to increase your efficiency, stamina and flexibility between registers and musicality. (See my online tutorials for a quick idea of what it might be like to work with me)

I have a degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Michigan and have worked professionally from Opera to Pop. I started my professional music career at the age of 10, traveling the world with the American Boychoir School in Princeton, NJ. I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area where I worked as an instructor and vocal
coach for the Grammy Award Winning Pacific Boychoir. I also sang professionally for ensembles such as the San Francisco Symphony Chorus, Clerestory, American Bach Soloists and San Francisco Pocket Opera.

I am currently a vocal instructor for Sweetwater Music Academy, music director for the Jesters (a theatre ensemble for people with developmental disabilities) and I sing for hospital patients as a Parkview Healing Artist. I have taught grade levels K-8 in private schools so I am accustomed to all age levels.

As a songwriter I have composed and performed music for MTV, VHI, E! and the Oxygen Network, and have acted on commercials for Southern Comfort, Old Spice, & Anthem Blue Cross.

I am also the songwriter and front man for the original regional RootsRock band, Fernando T. & The Wickersham Bros and have established myself as a teaching artist for young audiences through the Carnegie Hall Link Up Concert Series.

I look forward any questions you may have and hope to help you or your child find creative fulfillment from the most unique instrument in the world- your voice!

[PLEASE NOTE: I will be teaching exclusively online from June-December 2017 period and am happy to squeeze in as many in in location lessons you would like before then]

Fernando's lessons are very helpful. I have improved my singing technique within my first five lessons. He teaches based on the individual versus a cookie cutter method. I would recommend Fernanado, especially for beginners.

I'm so glad we signed up for singing lessons! Fernando is a natural teacher for all ages. Don't hesitate to consult!

My 6 year old granddaughter, Avery, had so much fun (learning) about octaves, counting beats, singing and she accompanied Fernando with ease!
Thanks Fernando!
P.s. I was ready to join in too!
