I first had the pleasure of working with Amy on a project of original songs written by a mutual friend. She is a very gifted violinist with an impeccable ear. Years later, my now husband and I hired her to play at our wedding. She is a complete professional and I would recommend her to anyone looking for lessons or a seasoned musician.Mar 25, 2018
Amy Spaulding is an amazing piano teacher. She combines incredible knowledge with an uncanny ability to get that knowledge across. Amy encourages her students with good words and her own musicality. She has given new life to my love for the piano. As a ‘senior student’ that’s a great gift Amy has given to me. Lawrence Leichman, MDMar 18, 2018
Amy’s an amazing piano teacher! She’s extremely patient and understanding. I was really worried about learning piano because I’ve heard so many stories of friends being unable to learn because they hated their strict teachers, but Amy’s the exact opposite. She’s laid back, but she’s still very punctual and professional. She’ll tell you what you’re doing wrong and won’t make you feel stupid for it. I feel that I’ve been able to learn quickly with her!Mar 27, 2018

My daughter had violin lessons with Ms Amy for a year. We loved the convenience of having lessons in our own home with a great teacher, as her lessons were taught privately via Skype. Our only regret was that it would have been even better to work with her in person, but seeing as we lived in another state, that wasn't an option for us. Ms Amy was a great teacher! She was an inspiration to our daughter and helped her to love the violin.Sep 13, 2017Amy's Violin & Piano Studio's reply
Thank you so much for the comments and open review. Yes, it is optimal to have in person lessons. It was a pleasure teaching Megan for the year, and so happy she found a local teacher she loves!
