The word had started to spread and since then, Amy has been devoted to creating inspiring musical experiences for children.
My memories of learning music as a child are filled with positivity and happiness – I was not pushed to become the next child prodigy neither was I told to practice for two hours a day. What I was encouraged to do however was to love music, to love playing the Violin and to want to practice on my own accord.
For me, music learning should be a positive and enlightening experience for children. My main motivation behind setting up The Strings Club was to motivate and inspire children to enjoy playing music with others.
Prior to establishing The Strings Club, Amy had trained as a violinist at The University of Birmingham (BMus. Hons) and The University of London (MMus) and had performed amongst many well-known ensembles.
During her training, Amy also worked for numerous recognised music services as well as a classroom music teacher – of which she taught over 250 children per week – from ages 4 – 18.
