Amzi was the son of Edward and Eunice Chapin, brother of Lucius Chapin, and husband of Hannah Power (married 1800).

He started his career in Hartford, Connecticut, working as an apprentice cabinetmaker to his brother, Aaron, for three years. He then went with his brother Lucius to teach singing schools in Virginia and North Carolina. Amzi eventually settled in 1795, founding a mill and continuing as a singing teacher.

After marrying, he and Hannah moved to near Brownsville, Pennsylvania, where Amzi farmed and continued teaching in singing schools. The family moved to Northfield, Ohio, in 1831.
