• Welcome to Mrs. Amato's Music Classroom! 

    Thank you for visiting my website!  
    I started teaching in Wappingers in 2008. I am so excited to be back at Gayhead Elementary as one of the K-6 Elementary Music & Choral Teachers. This is a wonderful school community and I am honored to be part of it!  Please feel free to look around the website. Enjoy!

    I have been teaching for 18 years in New York. I grew up in the Hudson Valley and my husband and I are currently raising our 2 daughters here.

    I graduated from SUNY New Paltz in 2010 with a MPS in Humanistic/Multicultural Education. Prior to that I studied at The Sunderman Conservatory at Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania where I graduated with a BS in Music Education.

    A few interesting musical facts about me:

         1) I studied vocal music in Salzburg, Austria (Home of Mozart!)

         2) My main instruments are voice and flute.

         3) I traveled to Brazil and Nicaragua with my College Choir.

         4) I cannot answer the question, "Who is your favorite composer/singer?" because it changes every day!

     I am looking forward to working with all of your children this year.
