About

Amy Griffiths is a woodwind specialist based in New York City. She plays flutes (including dizi and Irish flute/whistles), clarinets, saxophones, bassoon, and uilleann pipes (Irish bagpipes) in a myriad of musical situations, from Broadway orchestras to klezmer bands, cabaret shows, jazz groups, and wedding bands.

Amy is from Maryland and has lived in many places before finally settling in NYC. Her education was acquired from The North Carolina School of the Arts (specialized high school diploma in music and Bachelor of Music), private study in Paris, France, Arizona State University (Master of Music), and Louisiana State University (Doctor of Musical Arts).


In addition to her performance life, Amy maintains an online teaching studio from home and also teaches woodwinds at The Third Street Music School Settlement in the East Village in New York City.


Amy took full advantage of all the time she spent at home during the pandemic: she reorganized her entire apartment, listed all of her unused stuff on eBay, shaved her head, acquired many jaw harps, built this website, became obsessed with her plants, and learned to play the uilleann pipes.
