“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

Ami Sarasvati

Ami Sarasvati is a teacher, musician, author, and group music facilitator. 

A Musical Childhood

Ami’s musical career started at 6 years old with piano lessons. They have served her well as a foundation for becoming a musical educator. But even though she had musical training, she was glued to the piece of paper on the stand. She yearned for a greater sense of freedom in her musical life.

A Friend Introduced Her to the Native American Style Flute

Many years later, a friend introduced Ami to the Native American style flute. She didn’t have a lot of time to learn a new instrument but loved the sound of Native American style flute music and decided to do something healing for herself and learn to play this intriguing instrument. 

Ami went on to develop herself through two extensive trainings: becoming a Certified Music Practitioner (CMP) through the Music for Healing and Transition Program; and becoming a group facilitator through the Music Leadership Program offered by Music for People (in her final year).
