As a musician with a diverse background, Alexandra has a rich and wide array of musical knowledge to share with her students. Offering lessons in voice, piano, songwriting, beginner guitar and ukulele, her focus is to encourage students to have artistic and creative freedom while establishing a healthy and focused technique. As a performer of many genres, including jazz, folk, pop, singer-songwriter, classical, and musical theater, Alexandra has the ability to relate to many singers and players. She strives to teach musicians the technique needed to express what they’re feeling, so they can freely play the music without having to focus on how to play it.

Over her 18 years of music training, she’s honed in on her craft with world-class musicians and educators; learning from Grammy Award Winning artists, Broadway actors, and music industry professionals. At Berklee, she focused on jazz and contemporary music, combining this with her previous classical training from Gordon College and her musical theater training from years of studying under a Broadway performer.
