Studio Founder, Dr. Amy Nielsen, holds Bachelors, Masters, and Doctorate degrees in music. Dr. Nielsen began playing the piano at the age of six and didn't stop until she had played a concerto (that's really long complex music piece, with a symphony). Dr. Nielsen has also taught and performed vocally in several places throughout the U.S., as well as performing abroad. She completed her doctorate degree in Vocal Performance and Opera Directing (2018) and is a published author ( A Selective Study of the Art Songs of Franz Lehar). Dr. Nielsen is a premiere Vocal Technician as well as an experienced piano instructor (with over 25 years of teaching experience). Dr. Nielsen has worked with hundreds of piano and vocal students of all ages and ability levels.
Dr. Nielsen has a strong believer that everyone should be able to have a life of music. That's why she became a teacher. Whether you're a just a beginner or an advanced student needing guidance, let's enjoy music together. At the academy, we strive to help all students discover and nurture their talents and encourage students to use their musical talents to serve others.
At Amy's Academy, we seek to "Discover the Gift Within" then expand those gifts with high expectations balanced with fun. Amy's Academy is one of Southern Utah's premiere music studios, offering comprehensive piano instruction and elite vocal instruction. Lessons are offered IN-PERSON & ONLINE (through Skype, FB video).
