Born and raised in Houston, Alexandria Eisa studied classical piano for eleven years under a private instructor. She specialized in the Suzuki method, which emphasizes aural and memory skills, technical proficiency, and creative self-expression. Her 5+ years of teaching experience has allowed her to develop the adaptability needed to connect with students of all ages, from preschoolers to senior adults.
Growing up with undiagnosed ADHD, Alexandria struggled when attempting to learn music theory and other complex concepts. These experiences led to frustration, perfectionism, and overwhelm, which has given her empathy for students who may have similar experiences.
As an adult, she is now motivated by her past to make learning fun and experiential for her students. She breaks down intricate ideas into bite-sized chunks they can readily understand, and demonstrates exactly how those ideas are applied and why they are useful. She believes it’s important for both teacher and student to laugh and have fun in every lesson, while discussing progress, objectives, and potential roadblocks transparently and collaboratively.
Alexandria’s goal is to inspire and equip every student she encounters with the tools they need to achieve their own personal goals, and to make sure they walk away from each lesson loving music more than they did before.
