Alison Mott grew up in a musical family. Her parents are professional violinists, her grandmother was an opera singer and teacher and her sister is also a Music Together® teacher in the Boston area. A graduate of Bryn Mawr College, Alison studied anthropology and wrote her thesis on the socialization of children in the preschool context. As a classically trained musician, she has sung with The Bryn Mawr/Haverford Chorale, the Bryn Mawr College Night Owls a-capella group, the Mendelssohn Club, Anna Crusis Women's Choir, and the Burlington Choral Society. She has also been a member of a dance company and has been trained in Sign Language . Alison brings with her unique experience working in a variety of educational settings for a broad spectrum of age groups. At both the Perkins School for the Blind in Watertown, Mass. and HMS School for Children with Cerebral Palsy in Philadelphia, Alison used music as a tool for instruction, motivation, and therapy. She loves Vermont, takes as many dance classes as she can, sings many styles of music with her friends, reads as much as she can, hikes local mountains, cross-country skis and is always up for a new adventure. This is Alison's eighth year teaching Music Together and 5th year of directing.
