While I studied Jazz Voice at the University of Michigan, my personal musical projects have spanned my affinity for all genres of music including jazz, musical theater, pop, opera, rock, and electronic. I have performed and premiered original work at all kinds of venues - jazz clubs, large rock halls, music festivals, New Music concerts – and have toured the Eastcoast with notable performances in New York City and beyond. Locally, performances have included those at The Detroit Institute of Arts, The Power Center for Performing Arts, Grand Rapid’s ArtPrize, and more. For almost four years I have been teaching students of all ages in private lessons, group classes, and workshops. Last March, I was a Guest Artist to Hobart and William Smith Colleges in Geneva, New York, where I worked with collegiate level students on various repertoires. I love sharing the joy of singing with my students and helping them explore material that sparks an interest in them. While I have a studio based in Plymouth, I am available to drive to you within a 30 mile radius.

· Singing · In home Alex is incredibly knowledgeably and has a very unique ability to tailor her teaching to the specific person and their vocal type. Understanding the voice and the muscles to enact is difficult to describe, and Alex teaches in a way that makes any vocalist– beginner or experienced feel like they can feel and grasp the instrument they can't see. Not to mention, she has an amazing voice herself.
