A versatile musician and instructor of many talents and interests, Amy Feriante began her piano study at age 7 under Annamarie Lindstrom, and began playing the flute in school at age 8. By middle school, she was studying flute privately as well as participating actively in her local community theater.
In high school, Ms. Feriante devoted most of her spare time to various musical ensembles, and began taking private voice lessons in addition to piano lessons. She sang in both Concert Choir and Madrigal Ensemble, and co-founded North Harford High School’s first ever all-women’s barbershop quartet. In the summer of 2001, she spent 10 days touring Italy with her various choirs, where she was given the amazing opportunity to sing a solo in the Vatican!
Amy attended Lebanon Valley College and graduated in 2005 with a B.S. in Music Education. There she immersed herself in Concert Choir, Chamber Choir, Symphony Orchestra, recording technology, and pedagogical approaches.
Ms. Feriante began her teaching career in Delaware, teaching middle school, general music, and choir. Five years later, she moved to Portland, Oregon. While there, she began teaching private piano and voice at Ethos Music, and joined Beati Chorum, a professional choir based in Portland.
Driven by her passion for music and for helping others, Ms. Feriante now teaches part time at Mother Seton Academy in Baltimore, in addition to Bel Air Music Studios. Her training in music education has given her tools for working with children of all ages and backgrounds, including those with learning disabilities or on the autism spectrum, but she is at ease with students of all ages, including adults and the very young.
