Amy King is a girl from North Carolina who has participated in music in some capacity her entire life. She started formal training as a percussionist in the fourth grade, joined choir in high school, and found her passion behind the piano at the end of her junior year in high school. It was that point that she realized she could appreciate the world better through the scope of music.
Amy used to immensely dislike studying history, but once she viewed it through the lens of the music that was made during all those famous events, it truly came alive. Amy now loves to analyze music through the perspectives of theory, history, literature, philosophy, and everything else truly human, since it’s all connected.
She’s written solo pieces for piano, arranged pop tunes for acapella and piano, and she hopes to extend her range to other instruments and write even more original music.
Amy’s real hope for life is to create art that connects with people on a deep level and, as a consequence, makes the world a little bit brighter. Change starts with each of us, and music can change our hearts.
Girl in Blue Music is the name Amy uses for her music business, and under this umbrella she performs live, records, writes original pieces, arranges, writes mini analysis essays on her blog, and more recently designs apparel and accessories specifically for classical music lovers.
Amy graduated summa cum laude with all university honors in 2016 with a BA in Piano Performance and English Literature. She is currently in pursuit of an MM in Music Theory from Northwestern University.
