About Amber W.
I have been teaching private lessons since 2008, but have been studying music since I was only 4 with non stop private and in school lessons. I now have my Bachelor's degree in Music education and am working toward my Masters in Music performance and Instruction.
I love working with my students. Watching them succeed at what they do is what makes my day great. I always love to have a fun atmosphere around me and enjoy every minute it. Music is great for self expression a great Escape or an easy pass-time. It's nothing that should be stressful, but the opposite and that is what my lessons aim to do. Provide an educational, but fun and expressive learning experience to carry with you or your child throughout your lives.

Amber is a really sweet and kind loving teacher to help you reach your goals
Amber was very nice.. she knew how to jump in right where my daughter had left her last teacher and became a favorite on the first day. :)
Amber makes lessons challenging and fun. She's got a great teaching style, develops student's confidence, and knows what a student needs to work on to become their best.
She’s wonderful & patient. My son, Alec, is enjoying his lessons.
She also gives good advice on practicing and taking care of the sax.
Very impressed!! On lesson one, Amber has opened up a whole new world for me.. thank you Amber
Amber is a gem!
Excellent teacher, I already have a deeper understanding of singing after the first lesson. Thank you!
Amber was very professional and friendly and quickly figured out my next steps to practice on the Low D Whistle.
very knowledgeable & patient.
After one lesson I can't wait for more. Amber's teaching is well structured and she was able to quickly identify my strengths and weaknesses. She also helped me plan a good practice regimen to make the best us of my practice time at home.
Amber is fun, knowledgable and down to earth. We thoroughly enjoyed our lesson and look forward to the next one.
I miss Amber's piano lessons, which I discontinued only because our schedules no longer meshed. She made learning fun, gave me helpful memory tricks, and accommodated my needs as a beginning student, even though I am an adult. I was satisfied with my progress and long to take more lessons. Being able to play even simple pieces gave me great joy and added another dimension to my life. She has my recommendation.Show More
Amber was a wonderful instructor. Very patient and a talented musician in her own right!
Amber is nice. I can tell she has a lot of knowledge and i can tell she cares for her students.She is very easy to approach with questions or concerns. I cant wait for my next lesson
So far, so good !!
Amber is really patient with a new student. I'm glad to be her student.
My son takes piano from Amber and I cannot say enough on how talented she is. She has so much patience and cares about her students. He responds well to her and is learning so quickly! She challenges him to continue to grow but does it in a way that is fun for a child his age. We think she is great!Show More
Amber is extremely knowledgeable about multiple instruments (my boys are learning the clarinet and violin) and excels at introducing young children to the basic foundation skills needed to succeed in playing well. She keeps lessons fun so that the children enjoy coming back each week and finds ways to keep them motivated when they feel challenged. :DShow More
Gives great feed back, positive personality, takes the time to walk you through the song and give pointers, helps you to understand the actual song and gets you to relate on a personal level, very easy to talk to and relaxing to work with, an over all wonderful experience :)Show More
Amber is an amazing music teacher! I've been taking lessons with her for a little over a month and am very happy with my progress. She is very approachable, friendly, and is available practically whenever you need her! I couldn't be any happier with her.Show More
