Amy Lenell Ledwith
Amy can’t remember a time before she played music. She began teaching herself piano when she was five, took up violin at nine and always loves seeking a new instrumental challenge. Now based in Wyoming, she lived in Cork, Ireland from 2007-2008 in order to immerse herself in Irish traditional fiddling and returned to Ireland in 2013 to pursue her master’s degree in ethnomusicology and focused much of her studies on the effects of duration – repeating a short piece for an extended time frame. In 2015 she founded Drum Cheyenne, a community based drumming experience for all levels of players. Day to day, Amy strives to instill her students with a passion for music in her role as an elementary music teacher and regularly performs around the Wyoming area. Here’s a video of a Drum Cheyenne class.
