Teaching since:

Hi there! My name is Allison and I am currently in my 3rd year of teaching in Fairfax County Public Schools! I teach elementary general music to students in grades K-6 at a Title 1 elementary school that is also a Level IV AAP Center. I have a diverse group of students who speak many languages and come from many socio-economic backgrounds. I enjoy getting to know my students and learning what they love and how to adapt my teaching to their needs! Before I came to Fairfax County I taught Pre-K in the Richmond metro area for a year. I also come from a large family-I have 5 younger siblings! One of my siblings has high-functioning autism, so I have a special place in my heart for students like my brother! I have taken piano lessons since I was 8 years old and studied piano in college. I attended James Madison University and graduated with a degree in Vocal Music Education (K-12). I am certified in the state of Virginia in both vocal and instrumental music education for grades K-12. Some of my favorite composers include Bach, Mozart, and Yiruma. I enjoy listening to all genres of music, as well. I also speak Spanish and some conversational Korean. My hobbies include taekwondo, swimming, and reading. I also am of the Christian faith and am involved in my church. (Note: I do not incorporate my faith into my teaching unless a student or student's parent requests it.) I like to use the Alfred's Basic Piano Series, but if a student has started another series, I will be happy to continue with that series.

Our kids loved Allison! They were so excited for their first piano lesson and their book of practice songs. It's all the talked about all night and again the morning after. We really hope they continue to be as excited as they were on their first day.
