I loved learning with Amanda! She catered every lesson perfectly to me to make the lesson more enjoyable and productive. Whenever I got stuck in a performance rut Amanda always found a way to inspire me out of it. She knows music history inside and out and never ceased to amaze me. I'm so grateful I got the chance to meet with her weekly to have checkups on not only my pieces but also my moral. She helped me love to play my instrument and I'm so overwhelmed by the impact she made on me.
