Hire me to help your child learn trumpet and their band music! Hire me to help teach music to your children! Hire me to help your child learn music. Please consider me if your child has behaviors, or an IEP. I worked at a local residential treatment facility as a recreation specialist. I have worked at the YMCA as well as a therapeutic after school program. Since then I am a caseworker full time, working for at risk families in our community. My passion is working with youth, but love and enjoy teaching all ages! Music can enrich your life at any age!

I am skilled at reading music, learning it by ear, teaching scales and learning basic chords. I LOVE funk, swing, and classic jazz, as well as classical.
I have been playing trumpet for 16 years. I grew up in Webster NY and currently live in Rochester NY. I played trumpet in high school in local jazz bands, show choir, pit for musicals, jazz ensemble and wind ensemble. I continued to play in the Canisius College Jazz Ensemble. Since then, I play recreationally.

I think it is important to make connections between music knowledge and the positive effects it can have in every day personal, professional and social lives. I enjoy sharing and expanding the traits of my music career that have taught me to enjoy local concerts, events, and playing music with friends and hope to share that with my students!

I also enjoy singing, as well as playing beginner piano, and guitar as well. Feel free to reach out with multiple interests!

About Amanda P.

Hello! My name is Amanda Paratore. Born and raised in upstate NY, my passion is music. I grew up playing jazz and classical trumpet and have continued it into my adulthood. My primary passion is working with at-risk youth. I have had multiple jobs working with adolescents and children with behavioral difficulties and IEPs and would very much enjoy meeting people of all walks of life and ages who have interest in trumpet, in learning to read music, in learning to play music by ear or just in attempting to pick up the instrument. I very casually play guitar, piano and love to sing. I can incorporate these into our lessons as well! I a very much obsessed with funk. I love jazz, classic, swing, pop, punk, and am open to learning and teaching all types of music. Please consider me when looking for a teach for finding a "tutor" for band or jazz band for your young Miles Davis! I would love to help! I am interested in teaching all ages. Please feel free to reach out with any questions!
