About Me

fit Motus vita - life happens in motion

Since moving to Seattle in 2012, I have completed my Masters of Music from the University of Washington, built up my private student base, and secured a lease on a professional rehearsal and teaching space on the North end of Queen Anne Hill. This space is the product of years of dreaming and hard work. I have been been studying the voice, and performing for the past 15 years through private voice lessons, higher education, and competition. With each year that has passed I have found myself falling deeper and deeper in love with my profession, and am continually struck by all the possibilities waiting to be be achieved within both performance and teaching. I find often that these two areas of my profession inform each other; for as I grow as a performer, my teaching becomes more dynamic, and as my teaching becomes more established I am spurred on to continue performing.

 
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all act of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.
— Goethe
 

Philosophy

teaching - Life - performance

The skill of singing is learned over time, and the entire body makes up an instrument that cannot be replaced. No two voices or human beings are alike, or will sound the same. Practicing and teaching with kinesthetic tools, imagery, and a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology enables me as a teacher to provide tangible experiences of singing without tension, opportunities to build critical thinking skills, and support for each of my students as they pursue their individual goals. Regardless of level, I firmly believe that study of music provides priceless opportunities to learn about oneself, be challenged to think both critically as well as creatively, and to build grit along the way.

Amy is a fantastic voice teacher and fantastic for kids. Her lessons are methodical and consistent. She treats the voice as the physical musical instrument that it is; her lessons focus on awareness of what is physically happening to make sound she teaches how to strengthen and care for it. She adapts to my daughter’s learning style, and is serious yet gentle. She knows how to cultivate interest by picking music my daughter enjoys working on. I highly recommend Amy!
