Alexandra (Alex) is very happy to be working with PMP, rejoining many colleagues and friends! She holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Performing Arts from Savannah College of Art and Design where she studied acting with professional actors such as Craig Anton and John Prosky, and two Bachelor of Music degrees from Seton Hill University in Vocal Performance and Music Therapy, where she studied voice with Daphne Alderson and piano with Edward Kuhn. She is a Board-Certified Music Therapist (MT-BC) and completed her music therapy internship at Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital in Cleveland, OH, in 2016. Her music therapy training and experience greatly inform all of her work, including her approach to teaching. Alex is very passionate about adapting to individual students' needs and working together to create a learning experience that is suited to each student. She has over seven years of experience teaching privately and loves helping students "find their voice." Alex helps students to develop a strong technical foundation that can then be applied to many singing styles, including classical, musical theatre, and beyond. She is happy to incorporate acting training into vocal lessons, as well, and believes that music and acting come together in a beautiful way as we tell stories through song.
Alex's performance experience includes classical and opera performances, theatre, musical theatre, and film/television/commercial work. She enjoys adapting to the challenges of each different medium and the variety that they provide. Some of her favorite roles include Elinor in Sense and Sensibility, Lucy Steele in another version of Sense and Sensibility, Mrs. Segstrom in A Little Night Music, Julia in The Wedding Singer, and Julie in her upcoming original co-written and co-composed musical short film, Hold the Cheese, Please. Look for her as Cleo in upcoming Lifetime film, Killer Cover Up.
Currently, Alex lives in Savannah, GA with her new husband, Jaron Carlson (an acting teacher with PMP!). Her lesson and class offerings are virtual only, at this time.
