Experienced violist who has been playing for 14 years. I have only had young students in the past, but I am willing to teach adults as well. If you're a beginner, I would love to help you get started and introduce you into all the wonderful music for the violin and viola! I will take the time to find music you specifically enjoy and adjust to your tastes. I care very much about helping you find an ear for music and finding your favorite styles! We'll be learning about technique, intonation, note reading, and of course, music theory. Please contact me if you'd like to see what I can teach you!

About Amanda M.

Hi there, my name is Amanda and I am a passionate musician! I am a violist of 14 years, a pianist of 16, as well as a songwriter and (currently) a student in music production. Music is one of the most important aspects of my life, and I enjoy sharing it with others more than anything.

If you would like a relaxed, fun-focused experience, we'd be a perfect match. I believe anyone's journey into music and improving their skill set should be as enjoyable as possible. I will go out of my way and do everything I can to make sure that you're playing pieces you love, and I will actively look for music I think you'll like. I will do everything I can to help you improve your understanding of techniques and music theory as well.

I like to think I am fairly flexible with schedules and I will accommodate to any needs you may have. If you have any questions or anything, please shoot me a message and I will see what I can do for you!

Amanda is a fantastic teacher for a beginning violist of any age. Even on days that I am not motivated and don't really want to play she is able to brighten my day with her optimism, energy, and enthusiasm. She has an extraordinary ability to add confidence to a new and nervous student. My experience as a someone in their 30's has been absolutely wonderful with Amanda as my teacher.

Amanda is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and is doing an excellent job teaching my Kindergartner, who is progressing rapidly and enjoying the lessons! This is our third teacher, so we have some experience and Amanda is exceeding our expectations. My schedule is often unpredictable, so far too often, I am late or have to change our timing on short notice, Amanda is kind and patient with both of us and has put a great deal of effort into being flexible and available. We couldn't ask for better!

First lesson went great. My daughter is 13 and she said Amanda was kind, patient and made her feel comfortable to be able to ask questions. She is looking forward to her next lesson.

Take Lessons

I have been an official teacher with Take Lessons since October 2019. I have had my first student with me since the start and have gotten them through three of the Essential Elements books within the six months we've worked together. Two of my students have been with me for four months, and two others have been with me for about a month now. I have been tutoring both children and adults and can work well with any age, six and up.

Middle-school student I taught during the summer of 2016. This student was looking to keep up on her skills with the viola during the summer, and also work on some technical things to help her understand her school orchestra music better.
