I completed a BA in Music at Marylhurst University in 2009 after professional experience as a multi-instrumentalist in performance, instruction, and personal study. I taught myself the basics of keyboard, guitar, and hand-percussion as a teenager. The next serious pursuit was hand-percussion in West-African and Afro-Cuban traditions, playing with performance ensembles and dance-troupes. This gave my musical world a firm foundation in the domain of rhythm. My experience with flute began on bamboo instruments mimicking the sounds I heard in nature. I went on to study “silver flute” in both jazz & classical traditions leading to the completion of my music degree at Marylhurst where I had the opportunity to nurture both pursuits, honing in on the repertoires of composers such as JS Bach and Olivier Messiaen, in addition to music theory, composition, and history. Aside from ’Western’ music I also branched off into Classical Indian music, or Raga, and the playing of the Bansuri & the Tambura. While completing my music degree I also delved deeper into acoustic guitar and songwriting, working mostly in the folk-tradition of early Bob Dylan and the like. I went on to complete a Masters degree in Special Education, acquiring numerous skill sets which carry over to my music instruction practice.

Alicia I. began teaching private piano lessons in 2002 while attending UCSC. As a Music Major her studies also included Jazz combo performance which also earned Alicia a Jazz minor in 2005. While teaching a small group of piano students and raising a family Alicia began working with children's choir's .and fell in love with children singing harmony. This moving experience as a choir director has led Alicia to seek out non-profit status in order to create music programs in public and private schools where they are needed. Her Pilot Music Program was awarded funding in its first year and she intends to replicate this success in local schools where they are needed.
Alicia's repertoire ranges from Classical and Romantic to Jazz and Pop. Alicia uses music theory, ear training, composing, and singing in her teaching to create a well rounded understanding of music. Alicia loves to make beautiful, interesting and expressive music and enjoys preparing a continuous cycle of pieces to perform for her students.

I have a doctorate in music composition from UCSC, and have written a lot of music for a wide variety of instrumental and vocal forces. I studied traditional music in Korea for one year on a research grant from the Korea Foundation. I enjoy having a creative musical mind, and find great delight in the musical creativity of my students.
I also am a computer programmer in Python and Matlab, doing back-end for a music app "JamBandit."
Music is a great joy and pleasure in my life. It's very meaningful to me to help students gain skills and confidence so that they can realize their desire to be musical.
