· Singing · In studio Samantha is an AMAZING teacher and will quickly help you find your strengths and weaknesses and get you rolling. Within two weeks I could already notice improvement in my singing and technique. It is a great mixture of lessons and practicing live material, so I would highly recommend for songwriters interested in learning how to better sing their own songs.
· Piano · In home Samantha teaches our 9 and 14 year old sons. She is extremely patient and very knowledgeable. We are very please to have her as a teacher!
· Singing · Love my singing lessons with Samantha.
She is the second teacher I've had so far and she is awesome. She knows exactly what she is doing and she is very patient. Its great that she is an artist of her own, and writes her own songs, cause you can learn a lot from her.
