Since she can remember, music has always been an important and cherished part of Alecia’s life. In her childhood, she could be found running around the house singing, dancing and composing her own masterpieces on the piano. She enrolled in piano lessons at the age of 6, studying piano through the Royal Conservatory of Music and later branching off into jazz and contemporary styles. She developed a strong music theory background through RCM theory examinations and applied these tools to her playing. In addition, Alecia found her voice early on through singing. She participated in all of her school’s talent shows, which led her to finding her first vocal teacher at the age of 11. She trained in musical theatre and classical styles. Furthermore, she enjoyed competing at local and regional music festivals as well as completing Royal Conservatory of Music vocal exams.
Eager to turn her passion into a professional career, Alecia received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Musical Theatre with a minor in Dance from Ohio Northern University. There, she continued her piano studies as well as multiple styles of voice (Jazz, musical theatre, classical, and pop).
As a professional performer, Alecia has appeared in many shows including The Pirates of Penzance, The 25th Annual Spelling Bee, Sweet Charity, Guys and Dolls, Sleeping Beauty A Panto, and Legally Blonde: The Musical. Alecia has served as Musical Director for productions such as Into The Woods Jr. and worked with many students of all levels.
Alecia is passionate about sharing music with her students and discovering both vocal and piano potential within a comfortable, enriching teaching environment. With a Mary Poppins bag full of techniques and experience, Alecia is excited to share her knowledge and help her students achieve their musical goals.
