Allison Ivancic grew up in St. Louis and began playing the piano at the age of 8. She earned her BA in Music and English from Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville, where she studied piano and harpsichord with Dr. Linda Perry and organ with Robert Raymond.
While at SIU-E, she also pursued studies in piano pedagogy and served as a student instructor for SIU-E’s Keyboard Development Program. Allison has twelve years of teaching experience. For the past ten years, she has worked as an arts administrator and piano teacher in Maryland Heights, working with beginning through intermediate level students, aged 4-75.
