My name is Alissa, but you can call me Ali.

Being a mother, wife, and teacher are my greatest joys in life! When I am not teaching or spending time with my son, you can find me watching football with family and friends, trying out a new recipe in my kitchen, or curled up on the couch with a good book.

I began teaching piano while studying to be an English teacher at Mount Vernon Nazarene University in Mount Vernon, Ohio (MVNU) in 2010. As a freshman in college, I had just completed 13 years of private lessons. Never could I have imagined that my life-long love of piano and music would turn into my full-time career!

Yet, over the course of ten years, that is exactly what happened.

Although I will always miss my high school English classroom and each of my students, I cherish each note played and laugh shared with students in my piano studio.

As a teacher, my philosophy is to help each student regardless of age, background, or ability develop a solid understanding of musicality and technique while also having a blast. The way I look at it, if students are not having fun and do not feel inspired by the music they create, then I am not doing my job!
