Training
I am Amy Miller and I have been involved in music all my life since my father was a music teacher in the public school setting. I studied voice, violin, and piano at Idaho State University with a major in voice and a minor in violin. In addition to my formal training, I have also continued my violin and voice studies under Judd Sheranian, from the Utah Symphony.  I have grown tremendously under him. Before my vocal training in College, I took voice seriously in high school by participating in concert choir and show choir. My father taught me a lot of jazz vocalizing, even scatt. I am a lyric soprano and can easily sing up to high “C” on the piano.  I sing all different kinds of styles: classical, jazz, musicals, country, and pop.
Teaching

I have been teaching piano, violin, and voice for 32 years, and have loved it. The age range I teach are students 4 years and older and the levels I teach are beginner to early advanced. I give my students a good foundation by teaching the correct technique with the instrument, give them ear training, and teach correct finger placements.

 

With all my training, I am very versatile in voice. Meaning I can teach many different styles of voice depending on my students’ needs. I have also studied techniques on how to teach preschoolers to sing in “Singing In Suzuki Style”  under Debby Smith in Bountiful.  This was a fun way to teach the young to sing in a very enjoyable environment.  I taught preschoolers on up to 10 year olds in a group lesson style with 4 kids in age appropriate classes.  This is something I would love to do again at Day Murray Music.  Ask your kids friends to join your kids in my classes and we will have a blast learning voice with our friends.

 

For piano, I love trying to find music that my students love. The reason I do this is to keep challenging them and to help them learn to love playing. I teach all different styles of piano. I can teach classical and I do have a very good ear for jazz and religious.  But I love all types of piano music. For violin, I teach from Suzuki and Barbara Barber as classical methods.   Along with the classical methods, I have also found an interest in Celtic and fiddling style as well.
