Her main reach is for every student to get to know the harp in the unique way that each individual student can and desires. Whether it is through the perfection of orchestral excerpts, study of traditional classical pieces, exploration of improvisation, or even the transcription of a Chet Baker solo or a pop song arrangement, she hopes to see her student fall more in love with music through the harp. :-)

Amy is such a genuine and soulful teacher! I am so grateful with how patient, encouraging, and understanding she was throughout my lessons :). She is thoroughly knowledgeable of so many types of harp repertoire and picked perfect pieces for me to learn to match my personality and musical tastes. As I learned more and more, she always knew exactly what to say to help me master the piece. She is such a sweetheart and so inspiring with her dedication to and passion for teaching the harp and helping her students excel- I wish I could rate my experience with her teaching a higher score!

Lessons with Amy are so great! I had beginner harp lessons with her for half a year and loved her natural, encouraging and friendly demeanor! She's also great at the use of demonstration to teach, especially as I am a visual learner. From day one, I learned about the great history of harp technique and developed focused goals to work towards!
