Playing the Piano

“Amy Fairchild’s dynamic compositions inspire pianists of all ages with singing melodies and complex

rhythms that advance their skills and are a joy to play.”

Amie Webster,

Motif Music Studios

Victoria Island, Canada

“It has been a joy to discover

Amy’s compositions. I was first

introduced to her originals and

inspired by their ability to

convey storytelling aspects

alongside a variety of technical

challenges and creative

elements. More recently, I’ve

been able to introduce her

arrangements of popular themes

and I love the ways that she has

adapted them to preserve the

intent of the music, but to

present it accessibly to keep

student engagement and

enjoyment as a first priority”.

Jodie Carter,

Piano Teacher and

Owner of PianoBox.Net

Nevada, USA

“Each and every piece by Amy

Fairchild is unique and enjoyable

to play! I use them in my piano

studio with all of my students,

from beginners to advanced

levels. Amy’s compositions bring

out confidence and joy in my

students and help them to sound

more advanced. I highly

recommend Amy’s music to any

level pianist!”

Jeffrey Cannon,

Music Educator and

Owner of Masterthinkers

Washington, USA

“The music composed by Amy

Fairchild has been such a find for

my center. The music is not only

exciting and beautiful; it is easy

to apply to music education, and

my students connect to the

emotion of the pieces quickly.

Students who play Amy’s pieces

often request more of her music

and other students ask to play

her pieces after hearing them at

recitals. I highly recommend this

composer!”

Amy's  Story

Amy Fairchild is an Oregon-based composer, pianist, vocalist, and music educator. As an ASCAP recording artist, her most recent releases are two albums of her piano compositions: “Serendipities” (2021) and “Beneath the Surface” (2022).  Her international debut as a composer/performer came in May of 2022, at the International Composers Festival in Bexhill-on-Sea, United Kingdom.  There, her work, “Cloud Shadows” was selected and premiered at the “Small Is Beautiful" Concert. This self-published composition, along with her catalog of popular works for piano, are available for sale on her website.

 

With accolades from piano instructors across the US, Canada, and Europe, Amy’s compositions are embedded with key developmental components for solid mastery of the piano. For the beginner to the advanced pianist, her artful works provide students with exciting and evocative contemporary repertoire that incorporates technique, musicality, and musicianship, along with performance favorites.

 

Amy began her musical studies early in childhood. She went on to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Theory and Composition from Linfield University in 2004 and she studied piano with Dr. Jill Timmons.  From there, Amy spent 15 years on the faculty at CLASS Academy, a private, Pre-K through 8th Grade school in Portland, Oregon.  During her tenure, Amy served as Music Director, Collaborative Pianist, and Director of the Office of Human Resources.  She developed an innovative and comprehensive music curriculum, oversaw annual music and theatre productions, and wrote two musicals for children, all the while continuing her work as an applied piano instructor, composer/arranger, and performing artist. It was during these years that she honed her skills as a composer well-versed in what teachers and students are seeking in today’s marketplace.

 

Amy’s piano compositions have also been featured in the Cascadia Composers “In Good Hands” concerts in 2022 and 2023.  Amy also serves on the board of the Wallowa Valley Music Alliance, and is on the faculty of the Wallowa Fiddle Tunes Camp, as the director of the children’s musical theatre program.  Most recently, she has been invited to serve on the selection committee for the 2023 and 2024 Oregon Music Teachers Association “Composer of the Year” award.

 

Amy is a member of ASCAP, the Music Teachers National Association, Oregon Music Teachers Association, and the Cascadia Composers Chapter of the National Association of Composers USA (NACUSA). When she is not composing or teaching, you will find Amy hiking with her family in the beautiful Wallowa Mountains just outside of Joseph, Oregon.

"Miss Amy writes fun, beautiful piano music, and I enjoy learning and playing her pieces.  Snowfall, an original composition by Miss Amy, is my current favorite piece to play.  It makes me imagine mythical, fantastical wintery places."

Judy, Parent of Student

"Amy has gone the extra mile to find music to inspire an 11 year old and an 8 year old.  She has arranged music for them from their favorite video game theme songs to Broadway musicals.  She has even written piano pieces for each of them, reflecting their individual personalities.  The kids have loved learning to play their very own songs."
