Alexandra (Alexa) Borden is a composer with a masters degree in Music Composition for the Screen (film, television, and video games). She has played piano since age 5 and has an extensive vocal and choral background. While studying music composition in undergrad at Berklee College of Music and Moravian College, she also studied music education and has experience teaching in and out of the classroom.
Alexa encourages her students to choose the material they want to learn so that they are actively involved with deciding their musical path, while she acts as a guide and teaches technique through their choices. She finds this helps keep students engaged and having fun while they learn their desired style on any instrument, be it pop, classical, rock, folk, theater, etc.
Alexa is available to teach composition (theory, film scoring, and tech), voice, piano, beginner's guitar, and more from her studio or online (check with her to see if she is available to teach at your home).
The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) is a membership association of more than 480,000 US composers, songwriters, lyricists and music publishers. The ASCAP is committed to nurturing music makers throughout their careers.
Delta Omicron is a co-ed international professional music honors fraternity whose mission is to promote and support excellence in music and musicianship.
Review was supposed to be about piano, although it wouldn't surprise me she knew origami as well!
Unbelievable teacher. Patient, kind, and observant. Plans lessons far in advance so you always feel like you are moving towards mastering a skill. Versatile in her practices, and great examples that help you learn. Loves class rock as much as classical - always a plus! Highly recommended!+ Read More
