Alyssa is very positive and engaging. My daughter looks forward to her lessons with Alyssa.
Everything! I have had the pleasure of knowing Alyssa for over five years. She teaches my daughter with Down Syndrome violin at home. Alyssa is professional, patient, and caring. She has helped my daughter to achieve an amazing level of competency. My daughter has auditioned for our state orchestra for the last three years. Not only has my daughter achieved a perfect score for every audition, but she is the first in our school district, in her program to ever audition. I absolutely feel this is due to Alyssa. Her knowledge not only of music, but of how to teach children is incredible. I recommend Alyssa whole heartedly!
Alyssa has a lot of patience. She was able to break my daughter out of her shell who once refused to play piano to now playing all of the time!! She taught both of my kids and was excellent.
