Motion Studio is very happy to welcome a new music teacher to our amazing staff. Please help us welcome Amelia Welsh! Ms. Welsh will be available for voice, piano and guitar lessons on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and on Saturday mornings. We will be welcoming students to a free trial lesson with Amelia on Saturday, March 20. These spots are very limited and are first come first served. You can save your 30 minute free trial between 9:00 am and 12:00 pm here.
Amelia holds a Bachelors of Music from West Virginia University and will graduate with a Master of Music from the University of Louisville in May of 2021. Singing is her passion, and she has been involved in many operas and performances over her college career, including The Old Maid and the Thief, Green Eggs and Ham, the Magic Flute, and Gianni Schicci. In 2017 she had the opportunity to attend the American Institute of Musical Studies and made her Austrian debut singing in the Lieder program in Graz, Austria.
In addition to singing classical music, Amelia was part of the West Virginia University bluegrass band and spent time touring schools in southern West Virginia to promote the traditional bluegrass styles of the area. She loves writing her own folk style songs with her guitar, which she fondly named Martin. Amelia believes in developing healthy vocal habits that fit the lifestyle and vocal choices of her students as individuals. Making music is an incredible tool for self expression, and most importantly, is a wonderful way for people of any age to have fun!
Her teaching experience includes a home studio, teaching students through her graduate pedagogy classes in college, and instructing students with visual impairments through online sessions for the Virtual ExCEL academy.
In her spare time, Amelia enjoys spending time in nature, visiting local thrift shops, crocheting, listening to Taylor Swift, and spending time with her fiancé, Wes.
