Client Testimonials

"Amy was terrific.  We could not have asked for more.  With some performers things go well in some respects and not in others.  That's not the case with Amy.  Everything was perfect.  She's very talented, played exactly what we wanted and didn't bat an eye when things ran a bit long.  I received compliments from everyone at the party about hiring Amy - she was a key to making it a very special event."
            - Doug F., Santa Monica

"We had Amy play for our garden wedding ceremony in April and I have nothing but positive things to say about our experience.  I absolutely love the sound of a classical guitar and she did an outstanding job.  Besides being a wonderful musician she is very professional, always returning emails and answering any questions I might have.  I would highly recommend her!"
            - Stacy K., Costa Mesa

"Amy Hite performed at an event for our MBA program at UC Irvine. Her performance added an element of elegance and sophistication. It was a pleasure working with Amy and we’ll definitely use her again in the future." 
             - Sarah R., Recruitment and Admissions Officer, UC Irvine

"Amy Hite's artistry provided the atmosphere we had always envisioned for our wedding day. The wedding ceremony took part in an unusual location - an airplane hangar - so in addition to the beautiful music, we were impressed by Ms. Hite's complete poise and professionalism in handling the unconventional setting." 
             - Lauren & Carl S., Irvine

"From our first encounter with Amy through to our wedding day, she was a pleasure to work with. Our wedding took place on a gondola in the Long Beach marina....not exactly your traditional setting, but Amy was very accommodating. We heard comments all night about how beautiful the music was. Thanks Amy!" 
             - Carin J., Long Beach

"Perfect! She was accessible by both email and phone. Had suggestions that were so helpful and honest. Great price, on time, prepared. Highly recommended!!! Thanks a million Amy! I only heard great things about you and your performance." 
             - Renata C., San Clemente

"Amy was very professional, very talented and easy to work with. When we arrived at our party she was all set up and playing and just provided such a nice background for our evening. She was great." 
            -Alisa H., Los Angeles

"We thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Hite! She provided beautiful music for a beautiful night!" 
             -Adriann W., Long Beach

"Amy saved our wedding.  I had no less than two ceremony musicians have to drop out on me due to unforeseen circumstances, and I was worried about finding a quality musician in time.  Amy was polite, friendly, flexible, and reliable.  She went out of her way to fulfill a custom song request.  Working with her was a great experience and I'd happily do it again." 
             
- Rebecca B., Costa Mesa

"I was looking for a musician to play at my intimate wedding hosted in a natural park setting in Orange, CA. I wanted something romantic and classic to play during my ceremony. I found Amy Hite during my online search. I was on her web site listening to her snippets of music offerings and once I got to the Bridal Chorus, I knew I had to have Amy play when I walked down the aisle. She sounded so beautiful and that would make my day so very special. I knew her playing would be warm and welcoming to my guests as the gathered prior to the ceremony. I was right! I received several complements on her playing and people inquired where I was able to find such a talented and professional musician. Amy was easy to work with, she listened to what I wanted and helped make great suggestions. I want to thank Amy for making my day extra special."
              - Kristen L., Orange

"Amy was such a pleasure to work with. She was able to add a song and learn it as part of my ceremony processional. She was a true professional, and the music was so beautiful throughout the entire event. Thanks so much, Amy!"
      
         - Christina D., Costa Mesa

"Amy played for our wedding at the Mission Inn. The setting was perfect and the music she played was beautiful! I could hear her playing my special request as I walked down - it sounded so amazing! We also had her play during cocktail hour. I would have her play at any of our events & would recommend her to anyone - hands-down!!! She was so easy to work with, very flexible and professional. She took a special song request which was such a plus!"
                 - Tamara M., Riverside

Concert Accolades

"Classical Guitarist Amy Hite has a knack for bringing to life the composer's original intention, with a calm, sure command of the instrument's technical demands. Amy showed in her solo recital that she is capable of conveying the various emotions in the music she chose, which is, after all, what it's all about."
           - Daniel Roest, President/Artistic Director, Sacramento Guitar Society

"Amy Hite’s performance was exciting and fresh.  The highlight of her performance was Bellefleur by Pieter van der Staak.  Her technique and phrasing in the piece were well considered allowing the music to breathe.  Amy has a pleasing stage presence and  I look forward to hearing more from her in the future."

Michael Nigro, Long Beach Classical Guitar Society
