Amelia is an amazing vocalist, she can handle any type of music from country to pop and beyond, and do so beautifully.

Amelia from Australia, started off like most kids singing at a very early age. She wanted to sing when she was young because her dad and older sister sung all the time at shows and concerts. At about age eight her older sister Jess started teaching her the basics, like breathing. Then her sister started teaching her songs from Les Miserable, they also started singing duets, they would sing all the time and for anyone that came around.
Amelia is now in her third year with formal vocal training. Her first year of vocal training came from Rosemary Price. She said, that Rosemary was a very good coach and gained a lot of confidence from her. She is currently with Leonie Butler, who has help her with her vocal tone, song choice and has given her many opportunities to perform in many places. She does give much credit to Jessica Burns, for teaching her in the early years. Her family is very musically oriented, and from that she has learned to play the piano. She played the piano for about three years then moved on to the trombone. She also was apart of the school band for about five years. Amelia is now teaching herself the guitar.
