"There is nothing like singing when you have had a bad day. The vibrations are like having a massage that tickles the negative energy away... My goal when teaching is to guide students to discover their true sound and full potential while experiencing the joy of creating sound in a healthy way"


Amanda Balltrip

Director of Music Education

"My favorite thing about music is interpretation and collaboration. Though my training is specialized (classical), as an instructor I find the basics to be the most important. I focus on building a solid technical foundation, expression, and joy of singing."

Sommer Schoch

Instructor: Acting & Performance Coach

"As a teacher and director, I help students and actors realize their personal commitment to telling a story and then guide them in sharing that story with others in a fulfilling way. There is nothing better than finally seeing a student or actor totally embrace a character and tell their story viscerally. That's theater. That's what I love."
