Amy was a great teacher and my child loved learning from her. Anyone would be lucky to have her working with them.
Parent, Voice Student
Amy is a wonderful teacher. She was so patient with me when I took voice lessons- even though I was making some of the same mistakes over and over, she patiently walked me through how to correct those mistakes. I had no singing experience prior to taking lessons, and her teaching helped me tremendously with my singing skills and confidence
