Amy Hall

Amy Hall began piano lessons at the age of 7.  While growing up, she studied with several different teachers in her hometown of Burlington and was active in the music ministry of her church. She has completed her Grade 10 Royal Conservatory of Music piano and theory examinations.  Amy studied piano at Western University, completing her Honours Bachelor of Music Education in 2003, with a minor in French.  Over the course of her career, Amy has studied with several teachers including Sandra Brewer, Mike Janzen, Cornelius Rodert and Gwen Beamish. Amy’s love for accompanying developed at an early age, when she played piano for her Grade 8 school musical.  She was involved in shows such as “Oliver”, “Annie Get your Gun”, “Peace”, “Guys and Dolls”, “A Tribute to Rent”, and more.  She has also accompanied many singers and instrumentalists over the years, most enjoyably her own two daughters.
Amy runs a successful music studio “Music for All Ages” and has been teaching piano lessons for 20 years.  She enjoys teaching students of all ages, from beginner to advanced, and has had the enjoyment of watching her students explore many different styles of music.  Many of Amy’s students have successfully completed RCM examinations and won awards and trophies at local music festivals.  Amy has taught music, french and art at Brantford Christian School.  She can also play the guitar, saxophone, and djembe, and hopes one day to learn cello.  Amy is currently serving as the President of the Brantford Branch of the Ontario Registered Music Teacher’s Association (ORMTA), as well as secretary for the Brant Music Festival, and the head of music ministry at Pleasant Valley Church.  One of Amy’s most memorable musical experiences was the time she spent travelling with the African Children’s Choir as their music director.
When Amy is not involved in making music, she enjoys reading, crafting, and connecting with friends.  She has been playing with the Twinkle Strings Suzuki School since 2019, where her daughter is a violin student.
