Hello! My name is Alyssa! I teach violin, music theory, and Theatre!

Music:
I have been playing the violin for 7 years! I have 3 years of education in music theory! I have been playing piano for 3 years, and taking private voice lessons and choir. I have been composing for 4 years and have taken music lessons at The Colburn School. I was the first chair in my orchestra, and have played at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and at many events. I have been teaching for 2 years, and have taught in both classroom/group settings, and private lesson settings.

Theatre:
I have been doing theatre for 7 1/2 years. I have trained professionally and have taken many masterclasses with Wendie Malick, Oklahoma state university and Evilyn Rudie. I have made appearances on the Hub network, Universal Kids, and have worked professionally on sets shooting a web series, and while shooting reels. I helped create a show called Off "The Grid: A Devised Musical." I wrote and composed music for the musical, alongside acting in it! I have toured around Los Angeles performing in the musical Honk! to 6 different elementary schools and introducing kids to the art of theatre. I majored in theatr in high school and absolutely love acting and theatre!

Working with Kids:
I love working with kids! my past experience has included teaching music theory, Theatre, violin, and voice to kids. I am CPR and First Aid certified, I have tutored kids in math and English, and have taught international students English! I have helped with teaching kids theatre, and have toured to 6 different elementary schools in Southern California to perform and show kids the beauty of theatre. I use a kind, structured, and positive approach!

Theatre and music are both very important and can help with motivation for academics. This can enable creative processing and thought. Art (specifically music) can help kids use both their left and right hemisphere of their brain, instead of just the left if only exposed to academics!

Composition (Music),

Composition (Music)

I have been composing for 3 years. I have studied music theory for three years too. In addition to this, I teach how composition differed in the baroque, romantic era, etc... compared to now. I know and apply the rules of music theory, overtones, and triads. I teach and have studied roman numeral analysis, and am familiar with Dorian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Locrian modes. Though this is not a music theory class, a little theory will be learned along the way. I teach these rules so that composers can break them, or utilize them to their own advantage. I will also teach a minimal amount of Ear training to develop relative pitch because I prefer not to use notation sites for composition for students unless they are not familiar with music theory, or notes. I teach people new to composition/music theory, beginners, and intermediate musicians/composers.

Music Theory,

Music Theory

I have taken music lessons at Colburn, and at an Arts Academy in southern California. I have applied music theory to my composition, and have composed for musicals, and composed for my own musicals too! I have been studying violin for 7 years, singing for 5 years, and apply music theory to each of these forms of music. I have taught both children and adults in music theory. I have developed a relative pitch, and know how to play piano, and use it to display chords, and theory, so that you don't only see notes, but hear them too. I love teaching music theory!I teach beginning/beginner-intermediate theory

Outstanding tutor

My college daughter was struggling with music theory and after only a couple of lessons she can't stop raving about Alyssa we are definitely getting our money's worth. I wished we would have found her sooner.
