"I like Amelia because she is a very hands-on teacher. If you don’t understand the music or fingering, she’ll play it out slowly and show you what you’re getting wrong. She will always encourage you and won’t work above your level, but she will push you so that you learn quicker. Amelia is a GREAT teacher!!". - Ava Gaughan, age 10
"Amelia is a wonderful teacher and an excellent role model for young women and musicians. She is diligent, joyful and disciplined in her own practice of music and really embodies the artistry of music. Ava and Amelia share a love of music and we appreciate how seriously Amelia takes Ava’s work and passion for her music... We particularly like that Amelia stresses performance with her students, and encourages them to play for people... - music is always better when it is shared." Parents of Ava Gaughlan
"Amelia...provided a beautiful melody for my wedding. My Wife felt so much more at ease listening to her melody as she waited to walk down the aisle. It really set the mood for the ceremony and for our guests as well."
— Michael Wong (Groom)
"Amelia is just awesome! ....She was flexible, accommodating and willing to learn new songs arranged just for us... We couldn't be more happy with the decision to hire her for our most important day!"
— Carmen Yee (Bride)
"Amelia played at our wedding and she was spectacular! The owner of the B&B where we held the wedding could not stop saying how perfect it sounded throughout the house. I highly recommend Amelia and StringQuake [her trio] for any wedding or occasion."
— Peter Olfe (Groom)
"Amelia played harp for our intimate wedding party in our apartment in San Francisco. Communication was prompt, rate reasonable, music wonderful. Amelia agreeably performed in our smaller space, listened to our music requests and helped make our evening memorable. Highly recommended!"
— Jonathan Pearl (Groom)
"After watching Amelia's band StringQuake play at Bissap Baobab, I decided to hire her and the cellist Misha to perform at our wedding in the roof garden of the Fairmont Hotel."
