- Teaching since:
I am a supportive and encouraging teacher willing to teach all ages and abilities. It is my firm belief that music is for everyone.
I am currently pursuing my M.M. from Longy School of Music. I completed my undergraduate work at Rhode Island College, where I studied oboe and bassoon privately. I am currently on the private lesson roster for two public schools in the area, and teach both double-reeded instruments. I have successfully helped young students prepare for and audition into district level ensembles.
I have reed-making experience and can assist students with finicky reeds, to help ease the most frustrating part about playing oboe & bassoon.
I'm looking forward to working with you!
My daughter had a great time with Alyssa and learned a lot as well!
Alyssa is an excellent teacher who always goes the extra mile to make sure my daughter gets the most from her lesson. Her youthful energy makes her very relatable and her knowledge of the bassoon is something we struggled to find in our area. I feel like we’ve found the perfect teacher!
We all love taking online lessons! It saves us an hour and a half in the car, and it’s simply more comfortable to be in our own home. I’ve ben recommending Take Lessons to all my friends.
She is very nice and learning lots of fun and hard stuff!
Alyssa was great! She was very knowledgeable and gave great advice. The first lesson went better than we could have hoped for, and we are super excited for the next lessons!
It's so good! She helps me so much and she is so nice to me and makes a big improvement in my music! -Madalina
I had fun and she explained very clear! Thank you for helping me play the oboe!
