***Will travel to your home***
Professional performer with a BFA degree in music and a BA in education. After trying to reach 30 or more students in a classroom, I find getting to really know students as individuals and working with them one-on-one is much more satisfying for both of us. I can guarantee success to anyone. I teach in the privacy of your home. My emphasis is on fundamental skills and techniques. It is an easy step-by-step course. You will learn to play by ear as well as by note. My course includes theory, composition, arranging, improvising and expression.


Amber Saldivar
Area(s) of Instruction:
Piano, Music Theory
I absolutely love teaching piano and music theory to people of all ages and backgrounds. I have a patient, outgoing, and calm personality that works well with the challenges of learning a new instrument. I love the enthusiasm and excitement my students bring to their learning journey — it’s contagious! I thoroughly enjoy helping my students express themselves through playing artistically, composing, and improvising. I bring with me 19 years of experience working with people with physical, developmental, and learning disabilities, so I have learned to be flexible and adaptable to different learning styles and needs. I look forward to hearing from you!
