Interested musical styles
As a non native English speaker I found myself hundreds (if not thousands) of times avoiding to use words I did not know how to pronounce or being judged because of my accent. In some way I was pulling myself back and I needed to step forward and "find my voice". I found a new strength and freedom in my voice practices with Alexandra and also could sing! Her lessons are amazing, she does not only work with your voice but with your whole person; she uses amazing techniques to release the tension in your body so you can project your voice with power and relaxation and also connect to your emotions. She fluently leverages work and compassion for the students and is always glad to offer different options to help you to accomplish each exercise successfully according to your own pace and ability. Working with Alexandra will empower you to find your best with professionalism, love and happiness. Thank you Alexandra!Jul 5, 2011
I have been learning with Alexandra for the last few months and have enjoyed every lesson. Besides learning techniques to improve my voice, I have a good time. She is patient, knowledgeable and communicates techniques in an understandable way. I am moving towards my goal as well has having a good time doing it.May 18, 2011
I contacted Alexandra a few weeks ago looking to improve my voice range, diction, and to learn to better project my voice. I am still a work in progress but I have been thrilled with the results so far. Alexandra has worked mostly with me to learn to "open" my voice and to make it more "vertical". During the time after our sessions, everyone can tell the differance. I still need to make habits of the things that she is teaching me, but I have no doubt that if I do, I will reach my goals. I strongly reccomend Alexandra as a voice coach and will be continuing my lessons with her,Apr 8, 2011
I have been working with Alexandra for just a short time now - only two months or so, but in that time I've increased the awareness of my voice as instrument as well in how to use it. To date, we have been working on both the technical and performance driven aspects of singing, and I am delighted with my progress.Mar 28, 2011
I completely agree with Chelsea's testimonial. Our teenage daughter has taken voice lessons with Alexandra for two years and has learned so much. Alexandra is a gifted, classically trained singer, but she is very open to having her students sing whatever music interests them. Our daughter has learned proper vocal technique from Alexandra and has developed her voice and performance tremendously. Alexandra is a gentle soul and especially well suited to working with young people. She is patient and kind. She wants to help each singer develop their individual talent. Anyone who can study with Alexandra is a lucky person. She is wonderful!Apr 26, 2010

- Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?I recently held 3 vocal seminars at Hemphill Fine Arts Gallery, where I introduced basic vocal techniques to people who wanted to expand upon their vocal abilities. It was part of the show at the gallery called, "The Workingman Collective," a group of artists who connect everyday objects as art. It was a safe environment for students to explore their singing voice in a very fun and nurturing space!
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Because it can be a little intimidating to sing for someone new, it is extremely important to find an instructor you feel comfortable and confident with; trust is vital to learning. I believe it is imperative to have a playful attitude when exploring a student's vocal possibilities - learning should be fun. I want students to be excited and look forward to their lesson.
