My name is Alex Orlando and I am currently teaching saxophone and clarinet lessons at the Saint Peters location of Music and Arts. I attended Lindenwood University, where I obtained a Bachelor's of Art in Music Education. During my time there, I participated in marching band, concert band, pep band, orchestra, jazz band, and more. In these ensembles I played many instruments: Alto sax, tenor sax, bari sax, clarinet, bass clarinet, and flute. I participated in many professional organizations such as the National Association for Music Educators (NAfME) as well as Sigma Alpha Iota, a professional women’s music fraternity. I went into teaching because I thoroughly enjoy sharing my passion of music with others. I want every person to be able to succeed at their highest ability level and I want to assist in that journey.
