We had the good fortune of connecting with Amy Serrano and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Amy, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind my success is continued implementation of growth in all areas of my career.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
While most classically trained violinists end up having careers in the school system and symphonies, I’ve loved becoming a cross-over multi-genre violinist. I love playing EDM, pop, rock, and r&b music for my clients at weddings, parties and corporate events. I have an absolute blast creating beautiful and professional music videos and performing in different parts of the world. I actually took a break from music after college, but the freedom, flexibility and exciting risks that come with being your own boss as an artist lured me back in. I started my own music studio teaching private lessons. From there I decided to get creative with my music with new entertaining acts, visually stimulating looks and sounds, and creating my own music. Being an entertainer, educator, and entrepreneur is not easy, however I’ve learned how to live each day with discipline, dedication and determination. The world in its smallest form is made up of sound waves. That is why music is such a powerful tool for changing ones emotions and the environment. I hope that my music, through my educational classes and entertainment, brings inspiration, love and joy to my community and the world.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
For breakfast we’d start in La Jolla. After kayaking the shores and visiting the seals, I’d take my friend to La Valencia for a nice ocean view meal. During the afternoon, we’d stop by Old town for Margaritas and a fast fiesta, swing by Little Italy for delicious gelato, and then have a picnic at Balboa Park. After getting dolled up, we’d enjoy the beautiful evening San Diego views with dinner at Mr A’s. Being so close to downtown (assuming Covid wasn’t around), we’d stop by The Andaz hotel to say hi to the coolest manager Michael Cochran for drinks and dancing downtown.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My shoutout goes to my husband Dylan Burcombe and a book I read by author John Maxwell “The 15 invaluable Laws of Growth”.
