2005

Hello! Alessandra here, and I am looking forward to teaching you. Having 10 years teaching experience, you could say that education is my forte (as is music). While my degrees are in music, I have also taught theater arts and tutored core subjects. Having taught in both the United States, Australia and now in Europe, I use the best of all systems in my teachings.
I am experienced, flexible and organized. My favorite part about teaching is seeing my students succeed and how they apply what they learn in our lessons to other aspects of their life.

I look forward to meeting you!

Alessandra is one of the most empathetic and patient people I know, qualities many teachers waver on. Additionally, she has great experience both teaching and preforming. She is a very well-rounded person that inspires her students and makes them feel at home. I would strongly recommend her to anyone!

Alessandra has helped develop and strengthen my love and passion for the flute. She has extended my knowledge and ability which has encouraged me to pursue a career in music. She has always been willing to help, going above and beyond in assisting me to achieve my best results for performances and examinations. Alessandra always made her lessons productive and enjoyable.

Alessandra is a very patient and a lovely teacher, who understands her students' learning styles and needs, and customises their lessons accordingly. I am very grateful for having had her as my flute teacher (coming from a background with zero knowledge of music). I would definitely recommend her for a teacher. I can assure that you can't go wrong in choosing her as your music teacher. :)
