Overview

I love educating others through positive encouragement and am fulfilled when I have the opportunity to pass on to others what has been given to me. I base each session and lesson program on the goals of the individual student. I have 5 associate coaches and counting who have studied with me 6+ years who are continuing to impact voices on a national level. I look forward to helping you!

TESTIMONIES

Amanda took my voice to new heights! While working on my voice she understood my style and didn’t try to change it. As a rock singer…that was exciting! 
— Dalton Rapattoni 
 (American Idol Farewell Season)

I have two children who have been working with AEVS founder for years and I still see progress every time they have a session. She really cares about her students and it's important to her to help them reach their goals.

You're teaching has changed my voice and my life! You're amazing! I absolutely love and appreciate you!
- Maddy Hudson (American Idol Finalist, Season 14)

I have studied the Singing with Ease technique since 2011, and teaches from the perspective of someone who's voice and life has been truly changed, having been strengthened, and brought to it’s full healthiness, range, and ability through the proper technique.
- Laura Leighe, AEVS Associate

Not only has AEVS been able to help me with specific technique but she has taught me so much about my voice. I was blessed with the gift of being able to sing, but AEVS has helped me understand the gift that I have been given. She is not only one of the best vocal coaches, but she is one of the smartest...she has so much knowledge behind everything that she is teaching! I would recommend Amanda as a vocal coach and vocal mentor to anyone!
- Bethany Trevino

Blessed. Not much more I can say. AEVS founder is an amazing individual and an inspiration to me. She has helped me in so many ways. She is one of the best mentors anyone could have. She is unbelievably beautiful, and her voice? Well it is FLAWLESS. I love you.
- Connor Scott Frank

I have been taking lessons from AEVS for a little over 3 1/2 years, and she has helped me so much to learn how to sing with power and ease! I would not be anywhere near the vocalist I am today without her!
- Katie Best

AEVS has a cunning ability to draw amazing things out of her students they didn't even know they were capable of. She is patient, but assertive in her coaching style, and offers more than just singing lessons. She offers great mentoring that I know will stay with Mallory for a lifetime.
- Jenny, mother of Mallory Lynn

Singing has definitely become easier under AEVS' direction! Through techniques customized specifically for me, she's teaching me how to break down the barriers I've placed on myself. I have a much wider range now than I've ever had before and I look forward to continue working with her to maximize my potential as a singer!
- Wes Brazer

It's a blessing to have my daughter with a voice coach that she can look up to and have as a role model; AEVS can not only sing and coach but she is a beautiful person inside and out!
- Lori, mother of Holly Beth

AEVS has really helped me to grow as a vocalist and performer. She has taught me that I am capable of so much more than I thought possible!
- Sierra Sikes

AEVS has gone above and beyond to make me the singer I am today. She uses incredible techniques to strengthen my voice and the best patience to make sure I understand what I am doing. She has developed me as an artist and pushed me to reach for my dreams!
- Erica Maynord

Before my voice lessons, I had no idea what I was capable of. My range and stage presence has increased dramatically because of the technique I have been taught. The possibilities are endless.
- Kayleigh Jones, AEVS Associate

My life and progress has changed dramatically since I began studying with AEVS. Looking back, it's crazy to see how far I've come. She pushes me to do my best and then some. I wouldn't change my time with her for anything. I saw a difference in not only the way I sang, but also the way I sounded in just a few weeks when I started with her. She's the best at what she does and I'm beyond grateful.
- Ellerie West

AEVS founder has the ability to make a voice come out that I didn't even know I had. I'm consistently impressed with what I'm able to unlock vocally in her sessions.
- Chris Crow, AEVS Associate

AEVS has helped my voice grow to places I never knew it could!! My range is larger and still growing and I can control my voice incredibly well!!
- Samantha Gagliardi

It's like night and day the difference from when I first came to AEVS and now. I can sing with more support and do not run out of air - I sing with less effort and sound better! If you've been searching for the right vocal coach, you have found her! AEVS is easy to work with and will work on songs of your choice, even originals. When I first came to her, I planned on only taking 3 months of lessons to brush up on some things. I've now been with AEVS for over a year and plan to continue.
- Kacey Walkingstick

As an older student, which I am proud to say I am 51, AEVS has taught me the importance of having a healthy voice and giving me the tools to keep it that way, in addition to keeping my voice young and strong, she has in turn taught me to be a better singer through her technique [with] exercises and [also] learning to make good choices to keep my voice in good shape, so I will able to sing for years to come.
- Laura Mae Tatum

COACH BIO

“You’re the real deal!”
Amanda is one of the most diverse as well as one of the top vocal and performance coaches throughout TX, OK, and in LA. Not only is she a protege of Tom McKinney (Demi Lovato, Solange, Mario, Ray J) but she has been performing professionally since she was 12 years old! With over 1,000 shows under her belt, she has sung and performed virtually every style and genre of music from pop, soul, gospel, country to rock and roll!
Amanda understands what it takes to make an artist and how to make money as an artist. Most every day of her life has been spent in voice, dance, acting, piano, the studio, rehearsals and performance.  Since she was 12, she began performing 5 days a week and at 14 she became the vocal director for her show’s quartet. By the age of 19, she was playing weekly in the night clubs, entertaining and holding the rowdy crowd with energy to keep the dance floor packed until it was past “last call”. She continued to hone her craft (and make a living) for the next several years, singing virtually every genre known to man and traveling the country as the lead singer for one of the most sought-after cover bands of the past two decades. She played all of the high-end socialite, celebrity weddings and private functions. She is currently in the studio working on her next project.
With over 15 years of experience in the industry and coaching, Amanda’s aspirations, dreams and desires go beyond her own personal music career. She loves to mentor other artists do the same by passing on to them what has changed her life and career. She has studied under Tom McKinney for over 10 years. She remarks, “Tom’s vocal technique has allowed me to expand my vocal range, flexibility, and stamina – and I am no longer limited by my abilities! It has changed my life and career! I am excited about sharing these techniques with those singers/songwriters/performers that are serious about their career!"

How do your lessons for adults differ from lessons for children?

EACH INDIVIDUAL PRIVATE LESSON IS SOLEY DEPENDENT UPON THE PERSONAL VOCAL GOALS OF EACH STUDENT, THEREFORE THE CORRESPONDING LESSON PROGRAM IS CUSTOMIZED TO FIT THE INDIVIDUALS NEEDS. I TEACH ALL AGES, ALL SKILL LEVELS, AND ALL GENRES AND MEET THE STUDENT WHERE THEY ARE. HAVING WORKED WITH BOTH ADULTS AND CHILDREN FOR 10+ YEARS, I AM ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH VARIOUS PERSONALITIES AS WELL AS MATURITY AND COMPREHENSION LEVELS.

What do you do during the first lesson?

THE FIRST SESSION IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT THAN MOST SESSIONS THAT WE WILL HAVE TOGETHER, BEING THAT WE WILL BE GETTING TO KNOW ONE ANOTHER WHILE ALSO EVALUATING WHERE YOUR VOICE IS CURRENTLY COMPARED TO WHERE YOU WOUD LIKE TO BE. WE WILL DISCUSS YOUR VOCAL GOALS AND YOU WILL ALSO GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE HOW I WORK WHILE BEING INTRODUCED TO THE TECHNIQUE THROUGH A BRIEF EXPLANATION AND BASIC EXERCISE AND SONG APPLICATION.
