Violin, Harp, and Voice Instructor
Amy first began her musical training at the age of five. Beginning piano lessons with her mother, she learned to love music, long before she knew it would be her life calling. She started violin lessons, when she was 6 ½ and soon adopted that instrument as a lifelong friend, finding great joy in classical, improvisational, fiddling, and Celtic styles.
Heavily-involved with her family in music ministry, Amy’s life has been devoted to sharing her love and that of her Lord, Jesus Christ, through helping to lead worship ministries in numerous churches, singing and composing original songs, sound recording, and through playing violin, piano, and harp, among other instruments. This music ministry has spread from her hometown in San Antonio, Texas, to numerous states across America and even to the mission field in Asia, Europe, and beyond.
Amy received a four-year harp scholarship to the University of Texas at San Antonio, although she eventually decided to attend another university. In the spring of 2008, she graduated from Louisiana Baptist University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Christian Education (an emphasis in Elementary Education), a Bachelor’s Degree in Music, and a Minor in Biblical Studies and Theology.
She was involved in the San Antonio Harp Ensemble for six years and the Glad Tidings Vocal Ensemble (a Renaissance chorale) for several seasons. Amy is, also, an active member of the music department at First Baptist Church of San Antonio, assisting in vocal and instrumental leadership of its two Sunday services and serving, additionally, in the 1st Soprano section of the Sanctuary Choir.
Amy first began her career as music instructor at the age of 15 and has found it to be a lifelong passion. She delights in helping others grow to love music and in equipping them to use their God-given abilities wherever they are called.
