About Me

We are Sonus School of Music! Our studio currently staffs three private music instructors teaching a variety of instruments including voice, piano, woodwinds, percussion, and strings. 

 

My Musical Education Background

Our three instructors each hold a master's degree in music/education and have a combined 44 years private teaching experience. 

Genres and Subjects Taught

VOICE LESSONS (In-Person with Alexis Ward)
For voice students, we will spend the first few lessons establishing your goals and stylistic concentrations. We encourage our voice students to explore a variety of vocal repertoire including classical music, basic choral technique, opera, early music, musical theatre, and pop. In addition to serving as a vocal coach, our instructor will also act as your accompanist for each lesson at no extra charge.

PIANO/KEYBOARD LESSONS (In-Person or Online with Alexis Ward)
For in person lessons, students will have access to a regularly maintained and tuned yamaha baby grand piano. For beginner students, lessons are taught from either the Bastien Piano Basics Books or the Alfred Piano Series. For more advanced students, we will discuss your preferences and tastes and work on larger works from various sources. All students work weekly on technique, and although it's not required, many piano students are encouraged to spend some of their lesson time on music theory using either the Bastien Theory Book or Alfred's Essentials of Music Theory.

FLUTE (Online with Rebecca Silverstein) 

CLARINET, SAXOPHONE, VIOLIN, CELLO, and MALLET PERCUSSION (Online with Stephanie Stabley)

MUSIC THEORY/COMPOSITION/MUSIC APPRECIATION (In-Person or Online with Alexis Ward)
Music Theory and Composition are often paired together. Students interested in learning how to write music will often spend half of their lesson on music theory and dictation and the other half on writing and composing.

For home school families who would like to receive a music course credit, you may want look into gathering a group of interested students, and we can work together to create an appropriate syllabus and coursework combining music theory and music appreciation to count toward your child's education.

CONDUCTING (In-Person or Online with Alexis Ward)
For those interested in learning how to conduct, studetns will spend time in lessons discussing rehearsal technique, experimenting with gesture (with or without a baton), and learning how to create rehearsal plans and effectively communicate with your ensemble.

Student Reviews




Landenberg, PA

Alexis is my first voice teacher and I've found her to be immensely helpful. She's very good at explaining the mechanics of singing and demonstrating her ideas. She's given me many helpful exercises and tips that I use when practicing at home. Her lessons are helpful and fun!




Middletown, DE

I am the Choral Director at Middletown High School in Middletown, DE and have been a colleague of Alexis Ford for seven years. In that time, she has proven to be quite a musician as a singer and pianist. She has an excellent soprano voice and very knowledgable in vocal technique. She has also accompanied my high school choir on numerous occasions. In addition, her degree in composition has lead her to compose exquisite choral music for my high school choir; we have performed two of her pieces and will be performing a third piece at our 2013 Fall Concert. With her wealth of knowledge in music performance and music theory, I would highly recommend her as a teacher to any level of musician.
