Mrs. Amanda Fernald
Amanda was born and raised in Austin, Texas. She found her great passion for piano and music at age 8 when she began taking Suzuki piano lessons. As a student she had amazing opportunities to perform piano concertos with Southwest Texas State Orchestra (now known as Texas State). She attended many Suzuki institutes and festivals which encouraged her passion for the piano and music.

She has received her Suzuki Books 1-3 training through the Suzuki Association of the Americas with some of the best teachers from all over the world. Amanda graduated with a Bachelor’s of Arts in Music from the University of Texas at Austin in 2009 after studying with the amazing professors at the Butler School of Music. To continue her education Amanda attends conferences and training throughout the year to learn new ways to encourage and help students have the best musical education possible.
