Amanda Coffman in Acoustic Kids Alumni Directory

Fiddle/Violin

About:

I am a mom and working full time in the insurance industry. But still love to play and try to do so when ever I can. I taught private fiddle lessons for about 5 years until i gave birth to my daughter in 2015. I will occasionally guest play with my dad’s band Mystic Lizard. For the last 10 years I have run the Music Ministry at my church and just recently retired from that so that i could play more on fiddle rather than manage it.
