Overview

Growing up in Denver, I had a huge desire for singing and performing. By age 14, I was taking weekly singing & piano lessons, was acting constantly in local productions-many times getting the lead role.
Some of the productions I acted in: The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy), Camelot, Anything Goes (Reno Sweeney), How to Succeed in Business (Smitty), Carousel, Oklahoma, Les Miserables, and Oliver (Nancy.)
I received a 4-year scholarship to the Conservatory of Music in Stockton, CA. at the University of the Pacific. Upon graduation, I entered graduate school at the University of North Texas to continue my singing and piano studies, along with music theory, history, and musical video production.
Upon graduating UNT, I was chosen among 200 performing arts majors to be the featured soloist at the UNT commencement ceremonies. This led to an offer to tour Italy with the Rome Festival Orchestra. For the next two summers I performed in Copenhagen, Istanbul, Rome and Berlin with the Berlin Philharmonic.


*** Lesson Details ***
My students progress VERY quickly! As a teacher, I can easily identify my students’ strengths and weaknesses, and plan an individualized study course. I will instill a solid set of production skills that will easily serve ANY style of music you choose (from rock to opera.)
I will make for you a personalized recording for you to practice with daily. We will also work on songs you LOVE!
My students will have performance opportunities every 3 months. I will prepare you for college entrance auditions, TV contests, and television appearances. My students make extraordinary progress-I want you to become one of them!


*** Studio Equipment ***
10x15 dedicated music room, piano, lovely mountain view, mirrors, microphone and sound equipment available for students. The parents of students are welcome to stay in the room with the students, if they choose.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a piano and I will purchase the method book I want the student to use but I do require reimbursement for books and shipping if required. Student provides notebooks and pens.

*** Specialties ***
Seth Riggs, Popular vocal technique "Singing For The Stars"
John W. Schaum for piano

Really great! Amber was so fun and easy to work with. She was able to bring out the best in me and help me feel confident going into my audition. I hope to work with her again soon.
