Amy is a tremendously patient and wonderful teacher who engages her students in finding solutions. What an excellent quality as a teacher - it ensures the student is actively thinking of the problem and concentrates more on the solution (even if the technique is hard to master). She presents the material and works over it again and again to be sure the student is set for the weeks success. Amy also has the finest teaching quality in finding the good in the students work even when pointing out all the areas for improvement would be the easy route. Pointing out the good qualities makes these qualities much strong and gives a sense of pride to the student for their hours of work.

Amy is very personable and friendly. She does a great job working with my teenaged daughter, and she has been incredibly patient. I definitely recommend her!

My daughter enjoyed her lesson with Amy. She was so understanding and helped my daughter regain confidence in her cello playing even though she had not played in 2 years.
