Amzi Chapin was born in Springfield, Massachusetts, in March 1768. From 1791 to 1795 he taught in Virginia and North Carolina. In 1795 Amzi moved to Kentucky where he resided and taught singing schools. The available evidence indicates that he and an older brother, Lucius, were among the first singing masters to teach sacred music west of the Alleghenies. In 1800 Amzi moved to western Pennsylvania where he farmed and taught singing schools periodically until 1831, when he and his family moved to Northfield, Ohio. Amzi resided there until his death on February 19, 1835.
