Introduction: Hello! I absolutely love teaching piano to people of all ages and backgrounds. If you have taken piano lessons before, I am excited to nurture your musical talent and help you take it to the next level. If you are new to this instrument, welcome to the wonderful world of the piano! I have a patient, outgoing, and calm personality that works well with the challenges of learning a new instrument. I pay close attention to musical details, expression, and technique, to help make you the best musician you can be. I have over 8 years of experience as a piano teacher, 2 years completed as a piano performance major in college, and a master's degree in counseling psychology. I love the enthusiasm and excitement my students bring to their learning journey -- it's contagious and brings me so much joy! I thoroughly enjoy talking about all the details in music theory, and love it when my students ask "how" and "why" questions about how music works. I enjoy tailor-making each student's lessons to fit their learning style and goals. I have many years experience in working with people with disabilities, and so I have learned to be flexible and adaptable to different learning styles and needs. What are you waiting for? Let's get started -- the piano is beckoning!

Amber is a gentle, knowledgeable soul who is great with kids and keeps the right level of instruction and fun. I have no hesitations in recommending her as a piano instructor. [For reference, she is teaching our 6 yr old in our house 1/week.]

My 6 year old and 8 year old just started lessons with Amber recently, and they both love her. They are motivated to practice and look forward to their weekly lessons. Amber is encouraging and designs lessons that are fun and incremental for their levels.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is based on a monthly rate of $115/month for weekly 30-minute lessons. If you'd like a longer lesson, let me know and I'm happy to give you a monthly rate for that as well.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I typically chat for a few minutes on the phone with a potential student (or parent of a potential student) before meeting them. This allows me to hear more of what you are looking for in a teacher, what your previous experience with the piano may be, and allows you to hear more about my professional background and teaching approach. After this, if you'd like to proceed, you are welcome to schedule a FREE first lesson (30-minutes) so that you can try me out and see if I'm a good fit for you. At that point, if you'd like to sign up for lessons, we review my studio policy and sign it together .

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I was trained classically on the piano from ages 8-18, after which point I studied piano performance in college for 2 years, mostly under Dr. Stephen Thomas at CSU Stanislaus. I ended up taking a detour and getting a master's degree in counseling psychology in Seattle in 2013. But my love of music and children eventually drew me back to teaching again! I now work as a part-time therapist and part-time piano teacher and am so grateful for the opportunity to work in both fields.
