Below is a testimonial from one of Amanda’s students.

"I have had many very well accredited singing teachers over the years, but I can confidently say that not one even comes close to comparing to Amanda. I have been a student of hers for five years now and what she has taught me in that time is invaluable. Her definitive in depth knowledge and understanding of singing technique, vocal anatomy, artistry and performance, paired with her extensive experience, put her in a league of her own. Many teachers will give the same scales every lesson solely for the purpose of doing scales or warming up. Amanda however, will give no two students the same set of scales, nor will she give one student the same scales every week. Each lesson she evaluates the voice and will work to give specific scales and vowel sounds to target the student's current problem areas so that they will progress constantly. When it comes to song, many teachers will help the student to learn a song and help them with parts which they might have trouble with. Amanda will meticulously dissect every single component of the song with the student, helping them to make it their own, to capture the essence of each individual word and note, and to tell a story. In a positive, encouraging, motivating and focused environment, Amanda gives her students training which allows them to be separated from others, providing them with every opportunity to grow, and I could not recommend a better tutor or mentor."
