AMANDA_0034-min.jpg

Hello!  My name is Amanda, and I am so excited to be teaching all things music, including Choir, Ukulele, and directing music in our Musical Theater class at HSC!   I am originally from New Mexico and received my Bachelors of Music Education (voice) from the University of Northern Colorado.  I also hold my Master’s degree in Jazz Voice from Roosevelt University in Chicago.  I am a professional singer and perform in choirs, as a singer/songwriter, and in solo classical and contemporary settings.  I also play piano, guitar, old-time fiddle and ukulele, of course! 

 

I am a passionate educator, and have taught classroom general music and choir for many years in the Los Angeles area as well as in Denver.  I have also taught private voice and piano since 2005.  I hold my Orff Level 1 Certification and I love using the Orff philosophy of “Sing, Say, Dance, Play, Create” in every class I teach. Choir has been an integral part of my life from a young age and I enjoy helping my students discover and grow in their own voices while connecting and collaborating with others.  Musical expression is deeply personal yet something which connects us all.

 

Other than hearing live music as much as possible, I am a big baseball (Dodgers) fan. I love being outdoors hiking, biking, and walking, and spending time with my two incredibly wonderful cats.
