Teaching since:
2012

I am a professionally trained opera/classical singer, and I LOVE to teach. I have more than 5 years of teaching experience working with students of all ages and levels in both New York and Los Angeles. I love bringing the gift of music to everyone, and truly believe that music heals and brings happiness to all who partake in their own musical journey. I also bring with me 5 years of experience working for an opera company in Los Angeles where I managed the education and community engagement department. Through this opportunity I was able to work with diverse groups of students to teach them about music.

My teaching technique focuses on giving my students the proper tools and techniques that they need in order to build their instrument and preserve their voice for longevity. I have a Bachelors degree in Music: Voice Performance and a Masters degree in Voice Performance and Pedagogy. I have also taken several seminars on vocal health and development.

In addition to singing I also teach beginning to intermediate piano lessons. I have been playing the piano for many years. In fact it was my first instrument! I find that the piano is a wonderful way for students of all ages to really understand music as a language while learning an instrument simultaneously. I have a wonderful method and book that I use which I have found to be incredibly effective. I also teach and work with my students on their aural skills, pitch development and recall, music theory, and diction.

I am excited to meet you future student! Please don't hesitate to drop me a line. I look forward to having you in my studio!
Best on your musical journey -Amanda

Classical Voice · In home

My son Alexander was in 6th grade when he began to receive lessons from Amanda. She was able to get my son ready within 3 months for his audition to the Orange County School of the Arts. Thanks to her dedication and professionalism and my son's perseverance, he was accepted to the Classical Voice conservatory. She continued visiting our home on a weekly basis for four years. Amanda was always prepared with lessons which she pulled from music books that were appropriate for his age. She tailored his singing lessons in conjunction with his conservatory expectations. When Alexander was in 9th grade, she provided piano lessons as well. With piano lessons, he was able to practice his songs with more feasibility. It is with great admiration and respect that I highly recommend Amanda as a classical voice and piano teacher for she is an example of great talent and inspiration for the youth.

Classical Voice · In studio

Amanda is not just an outstandingly talented singer (seriously) but also a gifted and inspiring teacher. As a beginner, I had no idea what to expect from my lessons, but she blew me away with her warm, fun, professional approach to singing. Her magic is that she is equally a scientist and an artist. She is a singing expert at the highest level, and she knows how to guide your technique with laser-focused, detailed feedback. When she is explaining abstract concepts, she does a marvelous job of breaking them down into understandable and concrete tasks for practice. Most importantly, she prioritizes healthy technique and you can trust her to protect the longevity of your voice. After singing with her for a little over a year, for the first time I have discovered my voice's natural, free vibrato, and I truly enjoy hearing what my own recorded voice sounds like. Amanda is the best. She will point you to the stars and help you reach for them. Call her!
