We are excited to welcome Amanda Schneider to our wonderful administrative team!

Amanda Schneider, lovingly referred to as “the original poster child for MMS,” found Ciara on Craigslist in February 2010 while searching for her piano sensei. Under Ciara’s tutelage, Amanda went from only a vocalist to a full-fledged singer/songwriter, performing many live events, working in bands, and recording original songs in studio. Not only did Amanda find a piano teacher, but she found a very close friend in Ciara as well. When Ciara needed an administrator to take MMS to the next level, Amanda introduced her to one of her best friends, Naomi Markle, and the rest was history!

Now we’ve come full circle as Amanda joins the incredible MMS team to help bring additional support to our staff and community. Amanda is a proud graduate of UC Berkeley, and cut her teeth in the professional world as a Client Relations Associate for a couple of investment management firms in San Francisco. After close to 10 years of this work, she made a massive life change, traveling the world for a year and landing in Lake Tahoe to start a long desired career in the restaurant industry.

Amanda will be helping MMS in the areas of scheduling, communication/newsletters, make-up classes, and general admin support for Naomi and we are thrilled to be adding such a powerhouse and positive soul to our team!

Amanda resides in Lake Tahoe with her husband, and when she’s not working for MMS, she keeps busy with all the outdoor activities, rolling sushi and running a local cafe.

This weekend, the MMS staff is hard at work preparing for the start of our fall semester THIS MONDAY!

While it is a ton of work and responsibility fostering the talent, hard work, dedication, and emotional investment that our students put into their music, we are so honored and grateful that this is what we get to do each and every day!
The support of this team means everything and we are so happy that we have each other - to offer support, guidance, encouragement, and of course, to raise a glass and celebrate the many wonderful moments along this journey. Here’s to an incredible year ahead!

Hi friends! Looking for a talented Piano/Voice/Music Production Teacher at McAllister Music Studio in the Mission district of San Francisco. This is a GREAT job for the right teacher. Part - full time position available with great perks, competitive pay, and a reliable schedule. This is a W2 employee position for work beginning immediately. To apply, please send resume and cover letter to [email protected]
We've been sending our boys here to work with Lizzie for around 9 years, and MMS has been nothing but warm, talented, flexible, and inspiring. We've witnessed over time our boys' authentic appreciation and passion for music deepen, and for this we're so grateful. They seem engaged with the online classes as well and with practicing throughout the week. We highly recommend enrolling in this course, as they also do a fantastic job linking the kids' musical interests with their learning. Well worth the investment.

Not only is this hilarious, but so cool to see the little hints of Beethoven in this, and what better tune than that of Colonel Bogey!
We are giving away 10 of our Ideal Piano Footrests. Perfect for piano students whose feet don't rest firmly on the floor. Better hand position, better posture, less wiggling. More productive lessons, less student fatigue.
Click on the picture to enter to win a free piano footrest, and give us your thoughtful feedback. Teachers and parents of students are welcome.
Sending Love from McAllister Studios in Conifer, Colorado :-)
