Monday, December 9, 2019

Vocalist Amanda Munton began teaching Vocal Pedagogy in the fall of 2016 and this year is also serving as an applied lessons instructor for the voice area. She is well-versed in the anatomy of the larynx and takes the students through the maze of terms and functions of the vocal apparatus in the Vocal Pedagogy curriculum. 

Munton received an M.M. in vocal performance from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and a B.A. in vocal performance and pedagogy from Plymouth State University. Her performance experience ranges from opera and art song to musical theatre and contemporary pop, and she has additional performance experience as a recording artist for various composers and bands including the Grammy nominated Lamb of God, White Moth Black Butterfly, Rik Pfenninger and Red Cloud Revival. Munton is a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and was selected early in her career as an intern for the 2009 NATS Intern Program, where she studied under Jeannette LoVetri. Munton is the owner of Munton Voice Studio in Stratham, N.H., and has served on the voice faculty at UNH-Durham, Plymouth State University, The Seacoast Academy of Music in North Hampton, N.H., and The Brookline Music School in Brookline, Mass.  Her current and former students have won and placed in annual NATS competitions. They've been accepted to accredited music programs, such as Mannes School of Music, Carnegie Mellon, AMDA, Boston Conservatory, Boston University, Frost School of Music at University of Miami and UCLA Music Singer/Songwriter Program. Many are working as professional singers, recording artists, actors, choral directors and voice instructors throughout the world.
