Amy has a great command of technique and such an easy manner. She is super-friendly and was always positive with me. I've worked with several voice teachers, so I know what there is out there to choose from. Amy is definitely in the upper-echelon of teachers in her style, her personality, and her depth of knowledge. She sings pretty great, too.

For over 20 years Amy has impressed me with her singing and performance. As a performer, she is absolutely TERRIFIC! As Mixed Company's Music Director, Amy has elevated our music, our singers, their musicianship, and their performance to such a high level that our top clients, (Disneyland, Knott's Berry Farm, Five Crowns Restaurant, and Summit House Restaurant) rest easy knowing that the overall quality of our performance cannot be equalled anywhere in the Christmas Caroling industry. Amy has my heartfelt gratitude, and my highest recommendation.

To be a great teacher you have to have the foundation of schooling, desire and performance. Amy has those three attributes and more. She is very easy to understand and is fun to be around. I have and will continue to recommend others to Amy.

Vocal Training · In home

Amy G is my daughter's vocal teacher and we are absolutely thrilled with her lessons. She is always on time, she is friendly, incredibly intelligent and makes singing fun to learn. Her lessons are grounded in credentialed knowledge of the craft and she not only teaches vocal training exercises but teaches music as well. One of the great things she has done is allow my daughter to choose her favorite music to sing which has made singing a passion for her. I would recommend Amy to anyone without hesitation. If you are looking for a thorough, fun and reliable vocalist to train you and get incredible results quickly, Amy is the go-to person. Sincerely.
