Welcome to Ms. Allison Eichvalds our new music Teacher

My name is Allison Eichvalds and I am thrilled to be a new member of the BMS team! I come from a small town in northern New Jersey, and have been passionate about music since I can remember. I received a B.A. from The College of New Jersey and an M.Mus. from King's College London. I have a rather diverse teaching background, including a brief position with the Singing Club for the Welsh National Opera, a steady stream of substitute placements, and as an English teacher at an orphanage on the outskirts of Cape Town. My goals as a music teacher are to foster an active appreciation for music of varying cultures and traditions, and to equip students with the means to express themselves musically by establishing a solid theoretical and historical foundation. I look forward to working with you!
