With Broadway singing, I believe acting is part of singing. You're telling a story and must convey that story through song. We'll work on breath control, pitch, tone, vocal range, projection, enunciation, body language. The lessons start with warm-up vocalizing. Then, we work on songs you'd like to learn. I can also suggest some. Each student is unique; so your lessons and repertoire are customized to suit your needs. Also, included with your lessons are the opportunity to perform in recitals twice a year, email support, weekly lesson notes, progress reports, recordings, performance parties.

Teacher's Studio

I'm an adult piano student of Amber's at the beginners level. I started taking lessons in September 2020 and am making steady progress under her instruction. She is very patient and encouraging and has helped me to build confidence as a piano student. I'm enjoying my lessons with Amber and would definitely recommend her to others looking for a piano teacher.

Amber was patient and nice. Her class was very boring for my 6 year old. He lost interest almost immediately but seemed to be very enthusiastic with others when he works on piano.

Take Lessons
Working as an instructor with Take Lessons, I'm teaching piano for beginners up to advanced, using various method books, supplemental music, music of students' choice. Students learn the fundamentals of music theory to better understand their music. As a voice instructor, we work on pitch, breath support, tone, range, song expression as the main focus. Through their lessons, students have noticeably improved their singing. As part of Take Lessons, I'm offering video lessons and shorter clips to supplement the learning process. These videos are available on Take Lessons Live. In addition to the lessons, students receive email support, recordings, weekly lesson notes, progress reports and supplemental learning activities; and the opportunity to perform in recitals twice a year.
