Name: Alison Soccio

Program: MA with Professional Certification

Primary Instrument: Flute

Educational Background: B.M. in Music Education from Syracuse University

Teaching Background: In a few weeks I’ll be starting a job as a part-time music teacher for a preschool in Jersey City teaching children ages 1-5. In the past I student taught K-2 general music and 8th grade band, did various lessons/observations throughout the Syracuse City School District (mainly through classes), tutored English to an 8th grade student, and was a summer Literacy Corps tutor in a Syracuse City preschool.

Dream Job: Early childhood music teacher

Favorite Cookie: That’s tough! I suppose right now I’m thinking about how much I love those chocolate chip/oatmeal cookies…

Favorite Music Makers: It changes with the seasons, but my summer favorites have been Regina Spektor, Dave Matthews Band, John Butler Trio, and Nation Beat. In terms of classical music, I’ll listen to anything from the Romantic period. I also have a very special place in my heart of world music of all kinds.

And I think that’s about it! :)
