Alexis is a Single Subject Credentialed music teacher for grades kindergarten through 12. During her time as a music educator, she has worked with a variety of school districts providing music education to many students. Alexis coached bass sections in Long Beach Unified School District, East Whittier City School District, and Los Alamitos Unified School District working with middle school and high school instrumental music students. Alexis has also been working with Harmony Project in Long Beach Unified School District as a Teaching Assistant since August 2018. Alexis was a student teacher in Long Beach Unified School District for the Fall 2019 school semester where she taught elementary general music at Carver, John Muir, Emerson, and Oropeza elementary school as well as teaching middle school instrumental music at Franklin Classical Middle School. On top of teaching in classroom music environments, Alexis teaches private bass lessons to students who are interested in individual, one-on-one lessons. She has taught students ranging in ages from older elementary to retirees in private lesson settings.
During her time in music school, Alexis discovered her love for audio. Her audio journey began when she was a technician for the Daniel Recital Hall at California State University, Long Beach. In that job, she gained the experience of working with musicians in various musical genres, learning basic live sound audio techniques, stage setup, supporting shows as a lighting engineer, and taking shifts that involved routine maintenance in the recital hall. After four years of working for the recital hall, she wanted to learn more about sound and landed her first solo live sound gig with Living Beyond Limits- Center for Spiritual Living. In this job, she ran live audio for church services every Sunday morning. Her responsibilities included running sound for sermons, readings, and musicians. During her time with Living Beyond Limits, she ran live sound for two spring concert events. Alexis now is exploring the world of recorded sound by producing music from her home recording studio.
Alexis now balances life with her three passions in music: performing, teaching, and audio. She freelances in the greater Southern California area for all three. For more information on her current gigs and projects, please head over to the contact page. Thank you!
