Teaching since:
2008

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.

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!

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. :D

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 :)

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.
