Amy Stout

Amy Stout received her Bachelor of Music in Music Education from the University of North Carolina Greensboro, and she is currently working on receiving her Master of Divinity in Worship Leadership at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. She has a variety of experiences in music ministry, from worship keys player and choir coordinator/director, to youth minister. She loves working with students to put on performances such as Christmas programs and Spring Productions. She enjoys spending time with her husband, playing keys for her church, and drinking coffee and cooking.

“You don't have to be ‘gifted’ or ‘talented’ to enjoy music. It is about expressing yourself, making fun sounds, and experiencing beauty.”

Q & A with Mrs. Stout

Highlight of the Year:

Christmas program! It is a lot of work but I love the music of Christmas and enjoy sharing that with our students and their families.

Passion:

I am passionate about experiencing music in many different ways. We can experience music hands on through singing, playing instruments or games, movement, and creating our own music. We also can experience music through listening, describing, watching, and even reading about it.

Philosophy:

I believe that music is for everyone and that each student has the ability to be successful in music class.

Favorite part of teaching:

I love sharing my passion for music with my students and watching them experience new things as well as develop into musicians or music lovers on their own.

Favorite teaching memory:

My final concert at the high school I taught at in NC. We ended with a medley from Les Miserables and all 4 of my choirs performed together on stage. It was magical!

My hope for my students:

My hope is that my students learn that music connects them to the world, other people, and other cultures. You don’t have to be “gifted” or “talented” to enjoy music. It is about expressing yourself, making fun sounds, and experiencing beauty.

Fun fact:

My husband and I will be celebrating our anniversary this October. We have 3 fur babies: Daisy the Bloodhound, Bo the English Shepherd, and Casper the black cat. I play keys at my church, love coffee and cooking, and enjoy horseback riding.

Family is the Best Word

"The teachers are really vested in the kids long after they leave their classes. Family is the best word to describe St. Martha and prepared is the best word to describe my son after his time there.”
