Our Joy Makers
"I believe in bringing people to life, one song at a time....Every recital I was able to perform in, every stage I stood on, every audience I learned to connect with brought me that much closer to becoming a performance-ready musician. I needed a person all along the way saying, "You can do this! You have what it takes. I believe in you." I hope to give my students all of this and more in their private lessons at my studio. " -Alecia
