I am a classically-trained singer with very little experience singing pop and jazz. Amparo helped me tremendously. She helped me to understand nuances and style through subtle changes in voice quality, rhythm and breathing. Her guidance helped open the door to new repertoire that I've always wanted to sing and gave me the confidence to sing it in its appropriate style. I also highly recommend Amparo's CD Gotta Sing. It is very helpful for learning different singing genres.

Amparo worked with me for about two years. I was a slow student, but she brought me along always with kindness and patience. Through Amparo, I learned how to breathe correctly for singing so that there was minimal or no strain visible. I also learned how to sing in my natural range and even extend it. Above all, I learned how to put my own voice and musical quality in my singing. After working with Amparo, I had the confidence and the ability to perform a song, a Capella, in public at an open mic.

I am a songwriter, and my singing leaves a lot to be desired. I got a real surprise in 2007, when I was invited to sing an original work on stage in Athens, Greece. The stage fright started the day their e-mail came out of the blue, saying they wanted me to be part of the lineup at Athens Festival 2007. I can write, but I am not a singer. I asked Amparo if she could make me into a singer in one month. A couple voice lessons later, I flew to Greece and walked onto that stage as cocky as a Grammy winner. Amparo had taught me how to breathe, how to stand, how to phrase, and even how to look at the audience. I was an overnight miracle. When I was done, they applauded heartily, and a number of them actually thought I was a pro! It was only possible because of Amparo.
--Frank Manning, Songwriter
Amparo has not only proven herself as an excellent vocal coach, she's also given me the support I need to continue with my singing. I have discovered that I am not limited to one particular genre and that I can sing any song that touches my heart. With the techniques that Amparo is teaching me, I am feeling better about my voice and about myself. Music is a universal language and I am blessed to be able to express myself with my voice and Amparo is helping me discover this. I have had numerous voice teachers over the years and I feel that Amparo is by far the best and most capable. Amparo has a deep respect and appreciation for her students and I feel this in every lesson. I know that as long as I continue with Amparo, I will realize my full potential.
