About Amanda


Bio

I have been teaching music for over 20 years. I have three degrees in the French horn (BFA, MA, and DMA), and also have extensive piano teaching experience for ages 5-adult (including having been adjunct piano faculty at NYU), and have taught music theory and ear training for grades 4 - adult (including AP Music theory).

I have been teaching music for over 20 years. I have three degrees in the French horn (BFA, MA, and DMA), and also have extensive piano teaching experience for ages 5-adult (including having been adjunct piano faculty at NYU), and have taught music theory and ear training for grades 4 - adult (including AP Music theory).

As a French horn teacher I have prepared many students for local honor band auditions, Royal Conservatory Performance Exams (my students have all scored 90 or higher, two have been selected to perform at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall), college auditions (including recording arts supplements), and summer camp auditions. I've also had great fun working with adults who have returned to the instrument, and have helped some prepare for community band and orchestras. I'm also more than happy to work with students on their school band music and other assignments.

As a Music Theory teacher I've prepared students for the AP Music Theory Exam (every student I've worked with has received a top score of 5 on the exam), prepared high school students for college entrance exams, have tutored current college students (in theory and ear training), and have prepared students of all ages for ABRSM and RCM musicianship/theory/ear training exams. I've also had great fun working with DJs and songwriters helping them enhance the skills they already have.

As a piano teacher I've worked with students age 5-adult, skill levels, and in a variety of styles. I've also helped prepare college students for piano class exams.

I have always had a passion for teaching music. I strongly believe that a well-rounded education includes music, that learning music is good for both the brain and the heart. While I am very proud of my higher achieving students, I am just as proud of my students who simply love music and know they will always find a place for it in their lives. I also enjoy working with adult learners, it's never too late to learn!

Incredibly Helpful

I'm a beginner piano player and Amanda has been a great teacher for me. She provides teaching materials that we walk through together during our lessons, gives me very specific things to work on each week, and tailors the learning to things I need/want to work on. In working with her for a few weeks I feel that I've already more than doubled my piano skills compared to when I was teaching myself. I don't think I could have found a better teacher to help me get to where I want to be with the piano.
