"A fabulous facilitator who enables discussion, collaboration and learning. - Workshop participant, Social Prescribing of Arts & Culture training

"Clever, original songs which are both witty and poignant at the same time..." - Audience member, Paperwork! The Musical

"Amy is brilliant at using the words, phrases, feelings, emotions we want to convey in a dance production and creates sound scores which compliment the work beautifully. Each work I’ve created sits side by side with the music, rather than just sat in the background."
