As an adult learner, knowing nothing about the violin, Amber's candidness and patience has led me over the past 6 months to find intrinsic and extrinsic reward in my playing. Her expertise is immediately demonstrated, and it is clear to the learner she authentically wants her student to experience success and feel pride. Flexible and understanding, I would recommend adult and younger enthusiasts alike to avail themselves of her professional and friendly instruction.Mar 29, 2015Verified
Amber was such an amazing teacher!! She made it fun to learn the violin and she was extremely patient with me. She is encouraging, especially when it can be really frustrating in the beginning to learn a new instrument. I highly recommend hiring her :)Mar 27, 2015Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Lesson payments are collected the first lesson of every month. Wiggle room is available on the rate if needed.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Lessons include ear training, technique building through scales, etudes and various exercises, along with repertoire. You'll learn to play by ear and read music. Because there is so much to do in each lesson, 90% of my students take an hour lesson. Half hour lessons are also available too.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelor of Music in Viola Performance from the University of Arizona and a Master of Music from Temple University in Viola Performance, and am currently auditioning for Doctorate programs. I have performed with The Arden Theater here in Philadelphia, and have performed solo, in a chamber setting, and orchestral settings in the finest concert halls across China, Italy, England, and the USA.
