Emily Alcorn brings her love of performing to every lesson she teaches. For more than five years, Emily has and continues to work to inspire her students to dive deeper, whether in voice lessons or piano lessons, than just presenting the notes on the page. Emily strives to foster a love of all genres-- from Pop/Rock to Classical-- and maintains a positive and encouraging environment in which her students can express themselves openly and honestly. Emily's knowledge of technique and pedagogy is the basis of every lesson, each of which is tailored to each student's individual interests, strengths, and personal weaknesses.
Holding both a Master of Music in Vocal Performance and Literature, as well as a Bachelor of Music in Music Education, in addition to her dedicated work as a teacher, Emily has performed various opera roles including Béatrice in Béatrice et Bénédict, Olga in The Merry Widow, Dido in Dido and Aeneas, and Hansel in Hansel and Gretel. Overseas, she appeared as Cherubino in Le nozze di Figaro with Opera Orvieto and performed with the Vatican choir for their 500th anniversary with the Assisi Performing Arts Festival.
