Alison is a guitar and ukulele instructor as well as an outdoor educator who has 5+ years of experience working with youth and adults in education and instruction. Alison's roots intertwined with Florida and Northern Michigan as a child and eventually circumnavigated North America. After traversing the Rocky Mountain Range and Alaska she has now put down roots near Houghton.
She started her experience with education by guiding through Yellowstone National Park as a Naturalist. Then it was on to navigate whitewater down the Gallatin River in Montana. After that, her passion to teach pointed her to Southwest Alaska to pursue glacier, sea kayaking, and backpack guiding. After some time under Alaska’s midnight sun she went on to instruct both adaptive and downhill skiing in Colorado.
Now she teaches both acoustic and electric guitar as well as ukulele and partners with Good Times Music in Houghton. Alison specializes in beginner/intermediate instruction with experience in cognitive play development techniques and movement analysis.
She moved to the area last year and loves to ski, explore the beauty of the Keweenaw Peninsula, and create art and music in her spare time.
