Along with being a private music instructor, Amy is now a licensed Kindermusik Educator!
She began studying Royal Conservatory of Music piano when she was 13 years old. In high school she started on her favourite instrument, the saxophone. Amy was selected in October of that year to play in the Wilfrid Laurier Honour Band, an honour only grade 13 students were selected for. Throughout high school she learned to play almost every instrument in the band to fill in when parts were missing including bassoon, saxophone, trumpet, french horn, clarinet and baritone. Amy is still learning new instruments and now enjoys the violin, guitar and ukulele.
Amy is passionate about working with children and this led her to train as a Kindermusik instructor, where she can open up the world of music to young children and let them experience the wonder of music as she did as a child.
