Amanda's composition class is really wonderful!  If you want to add composition to your lessons, she has the tools to guide you through the nuts and bolts of not only teaching composition but also how to troubleshoot some of the common stumbling blocks for kids who are apprehensive.  Sometimes just starting a composition seems daunting, but she really makes the whole process accessible and enjoyable.  She also explains step by step how to use the MuseScore app to make professional looking printouts of your student's composition.  She is a very knowledgeable and engaging teacher.  I highly recommend her unique, fun, and engaging course!

EDUCATION IN CRISIS

98% of kindergarten age children test as creative geniuses, according to a NASA study. At thirty years old, that number has dropped to only 2%.

 

Composition preserves a child's creativity into adulthood while developing an understanding of tempo, dynamics, musical form, tonality, melody and harmony.

 

Adding composition to my studio has transformed the lives of my students by increasing their emotional intelligence and showcasing their innate abilities as musicians. Parents are more engaged in their learning and my studio has a two year waiting list.
