About this pro

Thank you for your interest in music lessons!  I teach both piano and violin and would love to be your teacher!  I look forward to working with you and your family.  I love working with students of all ages and stages, and am a gifted teacher.

I think that you will be surprised, that in no time, you/your child will be playing in amazing ways!  I am confident of this, and ask you to give me a try.  My goal is to challenge and to encourage my students in their skills and appreciation of music.

Let me share a little more about myself...

I have a Bachelors from Texas A&M University and a Masters from Georgia Tech.  I have a deep love of music stemming from childhood.  I have played piano since a young child, and the violin since my youth, and was Concertmaster at Clear Brook High in Friendswood, TX and went on to play in the Baylor University Symphony Orchestra.  I have played in various church groups and orchestras.

I am currently a piano/keyboard teacher with FineArtsMatter and teach the after-school KidzKeys classes in elementary schools in the Fulton County School District in the Johns Creek area.  I also teach in-home private lessons for students throughout the greater Atlanta area.  Previously, I was Music Teacher and Piano Accompanist for Roswell First Baptist Church’s Preschool and Kindergarten where I taught separate music classes specialized for children in 5 age groups (ages 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6) and led the Christmas and seasonal musical presentations for all age groups.  There she also developed “Music Club” and developed and taught the curriculum and program for Beginner Recorder for the Pre-First class (ages 6-7).  I greatly enjoy working with children and seeing them grow in their musical appreciation and talents. 

Thank you again for your interest, and I hope to work with you and your family soon!

I love to inspire others.  Music is one way to do that!  I want my students to enjoy and to explore music and to realize that music makes them smart, diligent, and wise.  I desire for them to build a lifetime of learning, which is intrinsic in the habits they develop now through their approach to music lessons.  I want them to always have fun and to challenge themselves to grow each day.  I want them to appreciate the art of music and to pass it on to others in their lives.  I want each student to always remember that music is a gift and to cherish it for a lifetime.

    Amy was very good at getting my son to open up and try something new.

  • Maia Suzuki-Mendez

    Ms Amy is a wonderful teacher. We could not have found a better fit ! She is super patient with my daughther and somehow she finds ways to keep her focused during class. She is very flexible as well with her schedule and homework and some weeks we can focus in more musics and some we wont. That has been very important to keep my daughter liking music classes. We love Ms Amy to pieces !

    Ms. Amy is very professional and patient. All my three kids are taking piano lessons with her. They like to practice piano after class with little reminder.



FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

When I meet a new student, I like to take a little time to get to know the student and the family.  I like to hear a little more about their musical background and goals, wishes, desires, and dreams.  I like to see what they are able to do (especially if they have had prior musical experience).  I will make recommendations for books based on the student's level.  If a student does not yet have a piano or keyboard (or even violin), I will bring one to try out.  I will then make recommendations for purchasing an instrument.  I want to have the student and family feel comfortable and confident that they are making the right decisions.

How did you get started teaching?

I am a natural teacher, and have been teaching children in various settings and capacities for a long time (I am talking decades)!  When my young son was able to start music lessons, that further developed my passion for teaching music.  I love to impart what I can to others.  It gives me great joy.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have taught all ages of students from preschool (ages 2 - 5), through elementary (ages 5-12), through middle school (ages 12-14), and high school (ages 14-18), as well as adult.  I adapt my teaching style and methods accordingly.

I have many students who are beginners, some who are intermediate, and some who are more advanced.  As a teacher, I have the ability to be flexible with all skill levels.

I also have taught some students with special needs, and some who are on the Autism spectrum.  It is amazing what we have accomplished.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Recently, my young son who is in elementary school was able to play the full "Sonatina, Op. 36, No. 3" by Clementi.  He played all 3 movements by memory.  I was so proud of him.  My students know I am so proud of them for achieving major goals and for working through challenges.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would say pray for a good teacher, and when you find one, keep them for sure!  Good teachers are hard to come by.  They are a precious gem!  Good teachers also know when they are good.  You can also tell by the progress you make over time.  Be encouraged that you now have help in achieving your goals.  Your teacher is there for you and desires your success!


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Do not hesitate to ask questions with your teacher!  That is what we are here for.  Do not think that a question is silly or not important.  There is always something to be learned.  If there are special needs, please do not hesitate to share, so that the teacher may try to meet your needs.
