Amy is our pianist and choir director. Her family moved to Vancouver Island from St. Joseph, Missouri, when she was young.. . . fortunately for us! Here she was able to carry on with music lessons and later majored in classical piano at Malaspina College. Having developed an interest in improvising and jazz, however, she took further lessons here in Victoria.
There then followed a music career that took her from the Yukon to Hawaii. After settling on the Peninsula eight years ago, she became an accompanist for the Pender Island Choir.
Nowadays she teaches yoga, self-discovery and healing at the Panorama and Saanich rec centres. On top of that, she teaches piano to all ages and abilities . . .as well, of course, being our pianist during Sunday services and other events. She's a talented and busy lady!
