Viola, Violin, Piano
Alyssa is a music education major at Weber State. She is a violist and has studied the viola for 9 years. She has also played the piano for around 11 years. Along with the viola and piano, she’s picked up the violin and has been teaching violin for about two years now. Alyssa began studying music at the age of 7 when she started learning the piano. When she was 10 years old, the orchestra program came to her elementary school and convinced her to join the 5th grade orchestra. Since then, Alyssa has participated in school orchestra programs each year of her schooling and has had opportunities to teach her own orchestra classes as well. She has also had the opportunity to receive private instruction from various teachers, including Helen Watts, Jillene Smith, and Dr. Michael Palumbo. When Alyssa is not busy with her instruments, she enjoys singing with her siblings, drawing, reading, hanging out with her husband and spending quiet time outside.
