MUSICIANSHIP

In response to personal findings, and a growing concern of major music institutions regarding the diminishing quality of music education over the last decade, I have recently begun to focus my attention on teaching musicianship skills. 

As a passionate advocate of the essential skills required for young people to grow into adaptable and capable musicians, I am a musicianship tutor for the National Youth Choirs of Great Britain, and recently launched Young Move-icians, which is designed to teach musicianship to children in Years 1 to 3, in an after-school setting.

"As a Musicianship Tutor, Amy combines her considerable expertise with a wonderfully creative approach that enriches our residential courses. She has a great rapport with our young singers and is joy to have on the NYCGB team."
