As a young child, Jacquie began to show interest in both piano and voice.

How many people can say they have wanted to play the flute since they were a child and actually stick with it? From the first time Alison heard the flute's sweet breathy sound at a Vermont Symphony Orchestra concert at the age of four, there was no question music performance was her calling. Alison began studies as a Vermont resident, learning beginner to intermediate flute technique and performance under the tutelage of Heidi Baxter and the Upper Valley Music Center. Throughout her High School career, Alison developed abilities as a collaborative performer participating in Districts Bands, chamber ensembles, and attending summer music programs such as Skidmore College's Summer Flute Institute and the New England Music Camp in Maine. In 2002 she also began teaching beginner flute students.
In 2004 after winning the Rosenburg Scholarship in Music, Alison chose to continue her studies under David Lavorgna as a music performance major at Goucher College. It was here Alison advanced her skills as a classical musician taking classes in musicianship, music theory, music history, chamber ensemble performance, and sitting first chair of her section in Chamber Orchestra for the duration of her studies. Also during this time, she expanded her musical understanding studying music abroad in Prague, taking Independent flute technique lessons in Florence Italy, and attending many of Goucher College's lecture series and world music events. Also in 2008, she began private Irish Flute instruction with Laura Byrne. As a soloist, Alison performed a variety of standard classical music repertoire for flute in the Baroque to 20th century eras and graduated top of her class in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music Performance.
Now living in the Cambridge/Somerville area of Massachusetts, Alison continues to expand and improve her skills as a performer and teacher. You can see her perform regularly with local bands at some of the Boston areas top music clubs and accompanying local Children's Music super star Jeff Kaupi, putting a new twist on well known Children's Music folk tunes and Jeff's original compositions.
