Meet Alyssa

Alyssa began taking violin lessons from me in eighth grade. Starting out in the back of the violin section, she quickly rose to the concertmaster seat within the year. She was also a recipient of a Kiwanis award in 2010.  For the 2009-10 WSMA Solo and Ensemble event, she was the only 8th grader in her orchestra to go to state with her solo. After auditioning for the Wisconsin Honors Orchestra, she got into the first violin section for fall, 2010. She also has an awesome ear. Go ahead, sing something. She just might be able to play it back. Besides being very funny, Alyssa is also full of heart. Sometimes she comes up with the most profound statements. Read her favorite quote below. It is a testament to who she is.

Some fun things about Alyssa…
