Amy taught my teen daughter voice for approximately a year before we had to reluctantly leave her when we moved out of state.
Her knowledge, patience and good humor were unsurpassed. She continues to support and encourage my daughter in her singing even at a distance. I would recommend her over all others for any child!

My daughter, Francesca, took voice lessons with Miss Amy for about 3 years.I did not even my child had a voice!!! But over the course of those 3 years, WOW, my child can sing!!!! Amy is smart, understanding, and talented beyond words!! Francesca LOVED going to her voice lessons every week! We were utterly saddened when she had to move. I cried for days wondering how I was going to tell Francesca that Miss Amy was moving!!! She was one of my daughters BFF's. We miss her soon much! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND AMY!!!! Any child would be lucky to have Amy share her talents with them!!!

Amy taught me for about two years, if I am remembering correctly. She took me from a preteen with a nasal and breathy voice, to someone who is confident, with a strong voice. Since working with her, I have been told I should sing on Broadway. She taught me ear training as well as general singing technique. She also taught me classical songs and Broadway music. But most importantly, she was a huge support in my life. I highly recommend her.

My daughter Emerson took voice lessons and basic piano lessons from Miss Amy starting at 4 years old up until Miss Amy relocated. To say we were devastated that Miss Amy moved is an understatement. Not only was Miss Amy a wonderful voice teacher, she had a special way of connecting with our daughter. Her patience, creativity, compassion made her a perfect fit for Emerson. We still miss her so much and truly believe that any child that has an opportunity to work with Miss Amy will be truly lucky!

My daughter (5 yo) looks forward to Miss Amy's class every week. Amy is energetic, fun, and full of life. You can tell that she truly loves working with kids and sharing her talents with them. The activities are fun, educational, and age appropriate. I love hearing my daughter explain "legato" and "stacato' to my husband and sharing the songs she has learned. We look forward to many more years of singing with Victorious Voices
