Amy Boyd is the owner of Sense & Color School of Music, and loves helping students find their inner rock stars! Amy studied vocal performance at the University of Texas at Austin, and spent the first half of her musical career singing with choral groups at UT and the Grammy-nominated Conspirare, under the direction of Craig Hella Johnson. Amy still loves the experience of classical singing, but once she took the mic as a solo singer, there was no looking back. Since then, she’s performed as a lead singer in bluegrass groups, rock bands, folk duos, wedding bands, a Pink Floyd tribute band, and more – and there’s nothing she’d rather do in life than sing! You can check out a video of some of Amy’s past vocal projects here.
A versatile and powerful vocalist in multiple genres, Amy works to divide lesson time into an equal mix of practicing important vocal techniques, and singing music that brings joy. Lessons should be educational, but fun too! Amy also has a real fondness for showtunes, and she’s a great asset for students auditioning or performing in local musicals.
Amy is a patient and kind vocal coach who works to bring out the inner performer in her vocal students, helping them to find a comfort and an artistry that goes beyond just notes and rhythms. As soon as students are ready, Amy incorporates harmonies as much as possible into vocal lessons – because music is always better with harmony! In 2014, Amy moved from Cedar Park to North Carolina to be near family, and most recently directed an ensemble performance of the Greatest Showman soundtrack in Charlotte, NC. As of Fall 2018, Amy is back in Austin, and is overjoyed to be back with her school, and teaching voice once again at Sense & Color.
