Teaching since:
January 2000

I have been a performing singer-songwriter/graphic artist for 15+ years have written roughly 200 original songs, released several CDs and performed hundreds of shows. Music has been an important part of my life and has given me enormous amounts of joy and growth as an individual. Both of my parents are musicians and I was fortunate to have their support and guidance in addition to formal and informal training from various musicians over the years but mostly, I developed my style of playing from many hours of playing and experimenting. I am excited to have the opportunity to teach others the tools needed to start their own journey in music.

- Specialties -
Guitar, Piano, Songwriting: Folk, Rock, Blues & Country.

- Lesson Details -
I am both easy going and goal oriented. I want my students to get the most out of their lessons and enjoy every minute. Ideally, within 6 months, the student should know and be able to play major and minor chords (instruments only), understand basic music notation, time signatures, and be able to follow basic sheet music (results will vary with each student). Students are encouraged to name songs that they wish to learn to keep them excited and interested in learning. Emphasis will be on accuracy, performance techniques and having fun!

- Equipment Needed -
Each student needs a guitar or piano/keyboard and a 3 ring binder as well as a music book (book not required for voice). I provide both for $15. I recommend supporting local music stores before going to the big chains. I can help with choosing an instrument if needed.

Amber is an excellent instructor.
My granddaughter is 7 years old and her ability to be attentive is limited.
However, Amber is able to maintain my granddaughter's attention. She is patient and work well with the challenging young children.
She promotes interest for the music world, and ensure that her students obtain an awesome experience.

Amber is very knowledgeable on what she does. She is very kind, sweet and professional. Couple of times she adjusted her time for my daughter ‘s availability in a short notice. I will recommend Amber to everyone looking for a piano lesson.
