Dr. Amy Hamilton received a Bachelor of Music / Performer’s Certificate from the Eastman School of Music, a Master of Music from Indiana University and a Doctor of Music from Northwestern University.
She has performed with the Toronto Symphony, Canadian Opera Company, National Ballet of Canada, and appears in solo recitals and chamber concerts. Recordings include Canadian Flute Quartets with Quartet Laurier, Canadian Flute Duos, Canadian Music for Flute and Piano, and Tryptique with the Meridian Trio.
Hamilton has completed Canadian Music Centre annotated bibliographies of flute and piano and flute chamber music. Her recent book titled Effective Practice Strategies for the Advanced Flutist has been published by The Avondale Press. The Laurier Flute Ensemble under her direction recorded a CD of Canadian flute octets titled 8 Pieces for 8. Hamilton is Coordinator of Winds, Brass, and Percussion in the Faculty of Music.
My goal as a teacher is to help every student reach his or her full potential both as a flutist and as a thoughtful, well-rounded musician. At Laurier, our close student-teacher collaboration, nurturing atmosphere and exceptional performance standards help me realize that goal.
