She spent a 10 day stint as an instructor for the renowned vocal coach David Braid's VocalizeU camp in Malibu during the summer of 2016 and has appeared as a featured artist/clinician/adjudicator at numerous jazz festivals around the country, including Univeristy Of Northern Michigan, Fullerton College, South Plains College, The Hilton Head Jazz Camp and BYU School of Music University of Mary in Bismark, ND, as well as many online masterclass engagements during the pandemic. Aimee continues to teach clinics and master classes to students who want to learn to scat sing like serious jazz musicians, and players who want to take their improvisation game to the next level.
