Get to know Hillary Cartner-Ambrose

Hello, thank you for checking out my profile. Here are a few things about me I feel you should know if you are considering me as your teacher. I graduated from Appalachian State University with a bachelor of Music Therapy, and a Minor in Psychology. While at Appalachian, I studied voice, piano, flute, and guitar. Since graduation I have kept up my skills on all of these instruments, and added ukelele to the list.

I have worked as a music therapist for the past twenty years and I am a strong believer that everyone has musical ability. I believe music is the greatest communication and motivational tool available. That is why I am happy to teach anyone of any age, from beginner to advanced. Contact the store for a consultation to see how lessons can be adapted for you or your child. 

My teaching philosophy is that:

Everyone can benefit from music

Everyone has music inside of them

And it is my privilegie as a Music Therapist and Teacher, to help my students set goals and find out how music will enhance their lives...while having fun! After all, music should be fun, not a chore!
