We are teaming up with our friends at The Social Lounge in downtown Asheville to showcase our teachers and students in a weekly music series every Thursday evening. It’s a great way to actually hear what we’re all about! Expect many different genres of music, original songs as well as covers, multigenerational music students performing alongside their teachers, special guests, brand new collaborations, and more.
We are happy to have Anastasia “An Ya” Yarbrough join the AMS team! An Ya, as she’s known, teaches voice, viola, and violin. The Memphis native is emerging as an active contribution to the Western North Carolina jazz and R&B scene as one of the few improvising violists-singers. As for her teaching, An Ya says, “The repertoire we choose depends in large part on the student’s interests and their level. As a voice teacher, I specialize in jazz, R&B, gospel, and other styles of African American music. As a viola and violin teacher, I pull repertoire from virtually any style or genre.”
