Elise Quiggle


Why Amy hired Elise:

  Elise started playing piano as early as her hands would allow!  She loves the piano.  Elise had another wonderful teacher before Amy Lyday started teaching Elise in 8th grade.  Amy immediately noticed her poise and artistry, even at that young age. 

    “Elise has an insatiable appetite for the piano and music in general,” says Amy.  “She always practiced; I never had to beg her to do that.  Elise has exceptional touch and makes the piano come alive when she plays.  It was easy to ask her to join me in teaching because she is an artist I would want others to emulate.”

    Elise has been teaching for Amy’s studio for several years and continues her own study of piano and performance to this day.

Teri McHargue

Acting and Piano

Why Amy hired Teri:

     Teri teaches acting and piano for GPA. Teri’s passion is theater and Amy saw that in action at her church when watching Teri conduct a week long Theater camp at Church at the Cross for ages 1st-5th grade.  

   “When I interviewed Teri, she was thinking she would like to teach piano, but my mind kept going to her theater abilities and what I saw her achieve with young children on stage. I asked her if she ever thought about giving acting lessons. She lit up when I asked that. I could tell it’s immediately that it’s Teri’s first love. I have personally seen Teri coach my own son to take the stage and she brought out the best in David. It was incredible. I want other children and adults to have that experience with her. She is marvelous.”
