Get to know Ahliyah
Hello, my name is Ahliyah Andre and I have been playing the violin consistently for 7 years, and on and off for 14 in total. I realized in middle school that I loved being able to create music with my own hands and started my school career in orchestra. I performed at multiple recitals throughout grade school and always took the chance when sectionals came up.
After graduating from high school I went immediately into the work field and became a preschool teacher for 5 years. I taught a variety of topics and also brought my violin in weekly to teach them countless things about the instrument, even allowing them to play themselves from time to time.
I am currently enrolled in the CIT Programming Degree at CSN and plan on majoring in game design and minoring in music. I love seeing how music can breathe so much life into all of the media that we consume daily and cannot wait to contribute to this myself. I listen to video game music daily and love recognizing how different composers use different methods in order to deliver the emotions that fit best for the game.
My favorite pastime is to listen to instrumental music while working and try learning the music myself. It has helped me tremendously with being able to recognize notes clearly and mimic them on the violin. I also love practicing the guitar, piano and cello.
