Amanda Dangerfield is an American pianist and recording artist.
She started lessons with Roger Lewis -- MusicMaster™ Series for Piano -- when she was nine years old. No one ever had to remind her to practice the piano, because she loved to play!
Roger encouraged improvisation and composition. Starting at age fourteen, Amanda composed a few pieces for the National PTA Reflections contest. Amanda finally fulfilled her dream in December 2017, professionally recording her compositions, "So Many Things to See" and "A Small Miracle," plus various cover songs. She released her debut album online on many digital music platforms, then produced physical CDs.
In high school Amanda did very well in the school's first AP Music Theory class, participated in choirs, bell choir, and musicals, and received a five hundred dollar scholarship for college.
In 2002 she earned a Music Liberal Arts associate's degree from Brigham Young University-Idaho.
Amanda loves beautiful songs (including Beatles music, jazz, Disney/movie soundtracks, new age, country, classical). She has wedding pianist experience, in addition to experience performing solo, as an accompanist, and as background music. Click the contact page to hire her for a Yakima, Washington wedding.
In 2016, exactly like Amanda had, her daughter auditioned for the first time and got the role of Gretl in The Sound of Music! A week before opening night, they (AC Davis High School) suddenly no longer had a pianist. Amanda was able to be the pianist they needed. She also played piano for Warehouse Theatre Company's The Best Christmas Pageant Ever that same year, and she was one of two pianists in Davis's Beauty and the Beast the next spring.
Amanda is happily married, and they are raising four wonderful daughters. She educates them at home, including MusicMaster™ piano lessons.
