Brittany Aquamarine loves to share her passion for music with others. She started taking classical piano and theory lessons at age 5 and also started in a choir at the same time and continued these formal piano lessons and choir studies for 7 years. She used her knowledge of piano to begin teaching herself guitar and later took private guitar lessons at The Mike Risko Music School in Ossining, New York. As a young adult, she also started songwriting, and has created, recorded and arranged songs with piano, guitar and electronic instrumental loops.
Brittany has worked as a teacher with students ages Pre-K through Community College since receiving her Master’s degree in 2006. She also received an Audio and Recording Production certificate from Sonoma State University in 2017. Brittany incorporates theory and fun into lessons and currently assists students in learning scales, chords, improvisational skills, sight-reading and songwriting, among other musical concepts.
Brittany has collaborated and performed with many musicians, adding songwriting, instrumentation, lead and background vocals to various projects, performing live with one band, Grenadilla, a band with a group of six multi-layered female voices, at SiriusXM Satellite Radio in Washington D.C. the Clearwater Festival and Mountain Jam Festival in New York.
She believes we all can choose to use the pieces we have to instigate necessary creative expression.
