Our HS freshman LOVES her drum lessons with Amy! We have been attending for well over a year now and have had lessons on a variety of drums that our girl has had to master for the 3 bands she's in at school, Marching, Symphonic, and Percussion ensemble. Amy truly cares about her progress and asks for the music she is working on at school, in advance of the lesson, so she is prepared and ready to offer detailed help. My girl always comes back to the car happy, focused, and more confident in her playing ability. We highly recommend Amy!!!

Amy is an awesome instructor! She is very effective at identifying your learning patterns and working with them to help progress quickly. She's also very positive, and a clear communicator. If I weren't moving away, I'd still be taking lessons with her!

My kids (and I) absolutely enjoyed their class! Amy is awesome with kids! She is playful enough, but firm enough. She knows very well how to engage the kids according to their age and kids actually paid attention, followed instructions, and enjoyed their time with her. It was a great first class and I would certainly recommend her. Thank you, Amy!

Amy taught our 4 teenagers chords on the piano. This was essential to further their learning and was done with such a patient, good-natured attitude. She is very professional, but tempered with JOY. We were blessed to have our teenagers under her tutelage.

As an adult learner, Amy was my first drum instructor. I saw her playing at the church and I liked her playing style. In class, She was and is enthusiastic and motivational. She really got me started on drums when I had never studied music before.. I'll never forget her as my good first drum teacher !

Amy gave me lessons when I was first learning to play on a drum kit at the age of 13 or 14. This was 12 years ago, but I still remember the small details she taught me about the basics that helped me build my skills over time. Amy is an extremely patient and enthusiastic teacher who will motivate anyone to try their best during their lessons and during their free time. I'm sure she is as great a teacher to experienced drummers as she is to novices. Highly recommended!
