Dr. Amanda C. teaches Simply Music piano lessons and woodwind lessons. Simply Music is a unique, play-based piano method designed for ages 6 thru adult. Students initially learn songs by pattern (not by ear or rote) before learning to read music, similar to how we learn to speak before learning to read or write. Simply Music draws on a repertoire of Classical, Jazz & Blues, Contemporary and Accompaniment pieces, teaching students to play with both hands together from the very first piece.
A Missouri native, Amanda has over ten years of experience teaching music to students of all ages, from beginners through college music majors and adults looking for a new hobby. She holds a doctorate in clarinet performance from Indiana University and is a licensed Simply Music piano teacher. Her passion is in helping students develop confidence and expressiveness. Whether lessons are in person or online, you can rely on a positive and encouraging lesson environment.
