Experienced piano teacher of six years available to eager students of all experience levels! I have twenty years' experience as a pianist in various styles, including classical, jazz, modern, and worship. I individualize my lessons to the student's preferred styles of music, but all receive a foundation in music theory, technique, chords, melody and accompaniment.

About Alexandra S.

I am a Hampton Roads native holding a Bachelor of Music Education degree from Lee University (Cleveland, TN). I am licensed to teach instrumental and vocal music to grades K-12 and have five years' experience privately teaching students ages 4 to adult. I currently teach elementary Strings classes from grades K-5, and am certified by the Suzuki Association of the Americas in violin method, volumes 1-3. I have been playing the piano since age 5 (classical, jazz, worship), and the violin for 14 years; I am currently a member of Symphonicity orchestra in Virginia Beach. I am primarily an instrumentalist, but also have 10 years' experience in choral singing, and enjoy teaching beginning voice and Ukulele lessons.
