Amanda Dills

Writer, Composer, Educator, Technologist


My name is Amanda, and I live in Oklahoma City. I am the Instructional Technologist at Oklahoma City University, and I am currently teaching several classes as an adjunct for OCU, both online and face-to-face. (That's me in the plaid shirt on the left, with my husband Blake and our furbabies Maggie and Barry.)

Education and Background (Abridged)

Well, it's kind of a long story.... :)

My Bachelor's Degree is in Music Education, and I taught K-12 Vocal Music for 3 years out of college.

This was followed by a move to Omaha, NE, and work as a private music instructor (and a lot of community theatre), which all lead to my first Instructional Technology job at Bellevue University in Bellevue, NE.

Even though I was enjoying this new world of online learning that I had stumbled into, I knew that I wanted to continue my education in music, so in 2011, I began attending Oklahoma City University, and in 2013, I received my MM in Music Composition.

While I had never intended to stay in Oklahoma after completing my degree, by my final semester, two surprising things had happened: 1. The Instructional Technologist position at OCU opened. 2. I met, fell in love with, and got engaged to an Oklahoma Pharmacist (who is now my husband).

And the rest, as they say, is history.


When I'm not working or teaching, I love spending time with my family and dogs. I love all things musical theatre and I'm currently choreographing Shrek the Musical for Norman High School. And, true to the background picture of this page, I do thoroughly enjoy photography and coffee! :)
