Teacher: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Songwriting

Amy Hartman is a Rios Music Project Teacher and Band Leader. She is also the lead singer of the L.A based band Dragster Barbie. She has her B.A in Music History from the University of Pepperdine and has completed a 2-year course in Pop Composition at the Grove School of Music in Los Angeles. She also as developed and taught original music method for primary aged children as part of the Malibu Juan Cabrillo after school program.

I enjoy teaching bass, vocals guitar and songwriting. Its fun to pass along years of experience of playing live and also what I’ve learned writing, recording and producing songs in the studio. I think you get something different from playing live than you do locked down in the studio. Being in the studio teaches you discipline and playing live gives you the joy of connecting with people. I love working with kids and nurturing the talents they have as they grow into artists.
