... grew up in a musical family playing piano, violin, viola and guitar. In 1997 she expanded her musical proficiency to include harp and hammered dulcimer. Alice played viola with the University of Wyoming Symphony Orchestra for 11 years, second harp for 15 years, and continues to play harp and hammered dulcimer for weddings, receptions, funerals, and other special events.
She has been teaching harp and hammered dulcimer students (with music or by ear) since 2009, both locally, and using Skype or FaceTime.
Studying therapeutic music for four years led to certifications in three nationally accredited training programs, and she maintained a private practice providing soothing harp music at bedside for seven years. Alice now mentors about a dozen US and international students studying to become therapeutic musicians in the Clinical Musician Certification Program.
Her current memberships include the American Harp Society, the Scottish Harp Society of America, and the Colorado Celtic Harp Society. Alice served on the Board of Directors for the National Standards Board for Therapeutic Musicians Inc. for six years. She also has served on the Board of Directors for the International Society of Folk Harpers and Craftsmen since 2010.
