I have recently relocated to Liberty, MO after teaching in NC for many years. I am currently accepting students ages 4 and up. My students receive a well-rounded musical education, which includes classical and pedagogical repertoire, music theory, technique, ear training, and music history. They are encouraged to participate in recitals, festivals, competitions, and other local performance opportunities. I strive to create a studio atmostphere that is simultaneously supportive and challenging. Lessons are available in person and also online via Zoom.

Watching students discover a new favorite composer or style of music is very rewarding.

    ''My 4-year old son learned so much with his time with Amanda. She was able to use methods to keep his attention and was very patient and kind throughout every lesson. I highly recommend her, she is a professional with a great deal of knowledge and experience.''

    ''Ms. Amanda Schafer has been a wonderful piano teacher for my son, who began lessons when he was just over five years old. Ms. Amanda is kind and patient with him, while still reinforcing good technique and habits to give him a strong foundation. She also keeps things fun in small ways, like encouraging the kids to choose pieces that are interesting to them and letting them play in costume at Halloween. When in-person lessons were suspended for five months due to the coronavirus pandemic, Ms. Amanda transitioned easily to Zoom lessons and kept him engaged and motivated. After a year and a half of lessons, I am amazed at how much Malcolm has learned and also how excited he continues to be about keeping up his lessons. I am so thankful that he has had such a dedicated teacher to instill in him an early love of music.''

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Potential students will meet with the instructor for an interview prior to the beginning of lessons.  This interview will allow the instructor to gain an understanding of the student's current playing ability, and also determine if the personalities are a good match.


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

M.M., Ball State University

Member of MTNA (Music Teachers National Association)


What types of students have you worked with?

I accept students ages 4 and up.  My studio is comprised of students of all ages and levels, from young beginners to advanced and those considering a degree in music.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I think personalities are important when choosing a teacher. Some students require a teacher with a strong personality, while other students thrive with a more reserved teacher. 

Parents that are looking for an instructor for very young children should look for someone with experience teaching the youngest students.
