Overview

Hello! My name is Amy and I'm new to the LA area! I graduated from the University of Miami Frost School of Music with a B.M. in Classical Vocal Performance with Honors. I'm currently available for home and online singing instruction in classical, pop, and musical theater styles for eager and fun-loving students of all ages and all skill levels!

I have experience preparing and performing roles in multiple opera and opera scene productions since 2010. I've performed on stage with Foreigner as a part of VH1's Save The Music Campaign and recorded with Latin Grammy Nominated artist Juanés. Another recent engagement was with the Fifth House Ensemble as a special guest artist in their innovative and critically acclaimed Journey: LIVE interactive concert experience. I've performed as a soloist in competitive regional choirs throughout my childhood. I have experience singing with choirs, orchestras, and a capella groups.

My current music project, Mint Trip, was recently signed to a record label in LA with a debut EP due to release in late August!

Amy went above and beyond the call of duty and has taken my singing to the next level. She is caring, and could explain things in understandable terminology. I went from singing zero to singing hero. If I could review Amy twice I would. Her skill is exceptional and her teaching is unparalleled. I would absolutely recommend to a friend, and will continue to go to Amy for a long time to come.
