"Amy Folkert taught piano for me at Gavotte School of Music in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL while finishing her degree at the University of North Florida. Amy was a great asset to our school as she was always prompt, professional and friendly with students and staff. I could always count on Amy to pay careful attention to detail. She is well organized which enhances her ability and capability to be an effective and attentive teacher of music. I even called upon Amy to help train a new and aspiring piano teacher. I know with her strong work ethic and professionalism that her studio will be successful and that learning there will be a great experience for child and adult alike!"
- Kimberley Hunt, owner of Gavotte School of Music
"I came to Amy wanting to learn how to make my own song arrangements and also to learn how to put more musicality into my piano playing. She is teaching me to listen to myself play and has given me many effective practice techniques. After just five months of lessons, I have gained much in both areas. Amy is very knowledgeable and works to meet her student's goals. My daily piano practice lifts my spirit and helps me soar through my day!"
