"We were so blessed to be introduced virtually to Alice at the beginning of the pandemic. The girls & I had decided we would each learn something new while at home. Jules chose guitar and singing. Cece selected piano and singing. Alice is an exquisite singer who also plays multiple instruments. But what has impressed me most is the extraordinary time Alice spends in between the girls’ lessons researching and creating the best tools to help them learn. She really tailors each lesson to my children, who learn very differently. My girls adore her and she’s made our pandemic-home-time much richer." - Cathy T., Greenwich, CT
"My children started taking piano lessons with Alice in June 2020. Right before the pandemic hit, we had been looking for piano lessons. When everything closed down, we thought we'd have to put off our children's musical education for an indeterminate time. However, we came across Alice's ad for virtual lessons and it has been a great fit for our family! She is a patient and kind teacher and we've been amazed at how quickly our children have taken to the piano. They sincerely enjoy practicing and look forward to the lessons each week. We hope our children are able to remain her students for a long time." - Cristee C., Dallas, Texas.
"Alice has been my voice and guitar teacher for over a year. She is serious minded and focused in lessons and has been able to help me work through major ambivalence and low confidence in music playing. She has been patient and supportive through my arduous process of contending with my own frustration and self consciousness. I have found her to be helpful in giving clear exercises and clear practice ideas that concretely help me make progress. She sends me a recording of our voice warm up and I can use that through the week. She sends a practice outline that gives focus to the week. I highly recommend her." - Beth C., Southwest Harbor, Maine
Alice has taught my daughter virtually for the past 5 years. She has always been incredibly patient and kind to my daughter, who started playing piano as a 6 year old and is now singing and dabbling a little with the guitar. Alice has managed to organize and execute her Zoom lessons seamlessly-as if she were here with us in person. She has kept my daughter just as enthusiastic and engaged even from the screen. She is a truly special teacher for such a variety of musical interests. My daughter loves discovering a new song on the radio and then asking Alice to teach her. We feel extremely lucky to have found her and my daughter always has an extra spring in her step after her lessons with Alice." Jenny M., Atlanta, GA
"My three boys have been working remotely with Alice since March 2020. Alice works closely with each of my sons to develop their talents, understanding their needs, and reach their bests. Alice is both a talented musician and excellent teacher, we highly recommend her to both novice and advanced students of any age." - Marisa G., Baltimore, MD
More about Alice:
Born and raised on a mountain by the sea in coastal Maine, Alice Limoges was singing before she could walk. As a young girl in Maine, she studied guitar and piano, released albums of her original music, and starred in several musicals as well as singing in many choirs. She decided to take her musicality to the next level by moving to New York, where she majored in Studio Composition (songwriting/production) at SUNY Purchase.
She worked in the New York City music scene for 7 years, toured the Northeast with her band, and recorded several albums while continuing to study with the best teachers New York had to offer even after graduating Magna Cum Laude from Purchase. While in NY, Alice studied Alexander Technique, which she integrates to teach students to play with a healthy technique which will reduce the chance of developing instrument related injuries such as tendinitis and carpal tunnel. Alice also interned with music therapist Jon Samson of Co-creative Music and has worked with several special needs students. In March of 2021, she became certified in Vocal First Aid by Vocal Health Education.
Alice had her first experiences teaching music as a teenager and went on to teach over a hundred students in New York. Using her diverse skills as a multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and empath, she teaches the fundamentals while focusing on the student’s passions. She teaches many styles including pop, folk, jazz, and classical. Her passion is teaching students to sing and play an instrument or two. A bonus to studying with her is that a piano student might later choose to branch out into voice or guitar or have an interest in writing and producing their own songs and Alice is able to guide them every step of the way. In March 2020, she took her teaching online and has been making online lessons fun and engaging for students all over the country ever since!
Alice has released four independent albums to date. Her song "No One Underneath" was a semi-finalist in the 2019 International Songwriting Competition. She played on the Grammy Award winning album "Ageless: Songs For The Child Archetype" by Jon Samson. She has performed at festivals (Make Music Harlem, NYC; Keene Music Festival, Keene, NH; The Campfire Festival, Cambridge, MA; Belfast Free Range Festival, Belfast, ME), colleges (Columbia University, Hamilton College, SUNY New Paltz, SUNY Purchase), and other legendary venues such as The Cutting Room (NYC), Rockwood Music Hall (NYC), PIANOS (NYC), Arlene’s Grocery (NYC), Club Passim (Boston), and Blue (Portland) as well as countless intimate concerts with Sofar Sounds.
