Teaching since:
January 2006

As a classically trained vocalist and graduate of Berklee College of Music and a professional jazz vocalist, I specialize in utilizing contemporary repertoire as a vehicle for teaching solid technique. Depending on the individual goals of the student, lessons can consist of any combination of the following: technique, music theory, sight reading, vocal workouts, diction, interpretation, stage presence, leading a band, etc.

Living room w/ digital piano, ipad and speaker system and seating for parents. Mic and PA available for use for more advanced students when needed.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring method books (when applicable) and my ipad, and students/parents provide wifi connection. Optional equipment to provide: connection to speakers for more amplified sound.

*** Specialties ***
As a graduate of Berklee College of Music, I specialize in popular music. My greatest area of expertise is jazz, though I am well versed in a number of genres including pop, R&B, musical theater, etc. I also have experience in working with very young children.

I know I'm just a beginner, but she over exceeded my expectations, she was very involved

Amelia took the time to read my structure from the inside out and I really enjoy working with her. It's a very detail oriented experience which helps build confidence and structure from within so I'm developing good natural habits and not thinking too much while I sing other than my expression. Fantastic!

Amelia is a wonderful and effective teacher with years of experience and a beautiful voice. I am still a beginner and have always wanted to grow with my singing abilities. Amelia is able to listen and understand where I am on my learning curve and explain concepts that are easy to understand and put into motion. I am very happy with the lessons and feel more confident in my voice after each session.

She was good! Recommend!

I love Amelia! She lets each student learn at their own pace through their own choice of song. Absolutely no required repertoire, just suggestions on what a student can work on. Amelia may want a student to practice vocal runs; that student can pick ANY song from ANY genre so long as it contains the technique. Her lessons are tailored to each student!

Amelia has been a wonderful teacher! She is very patient in working with both my daughter & myself. She really helps you grasp the nuances of the song you're working on to bring out the best of your vocal abilities. We've thoroughly enjoyed working with her.

Amelia is an accomplished singer and has been helping my daughter better learn proper technique for using her voice while making it fun for her. I enjoy watching my daughter improve under Amelia's coaching.

Training with Amelia has been very productive. She had her work cut out for her! :)

Very knowledgeable in vocal techniques and styles and is an active artist. Amelia is a good communicator and readily sees and corrects bad habits and technique.

She can do in-home or at her location depending on the timeframe and has reasonable rates. She also allows recording of the lesson for daily practice and review

Has been a very good experience!

Amelia is a great teacher! My 8-year-old daughter has been learning with her since last October, and my daughter has improved quite a bit. They practice a lot of voice exercises together, and that has helped immensely. At her talent show, the audience was amazed with her singing ability! I would definitely recommend Amelia.
