Alex-Anne Troxel,  Strings & Performing Arts Teacher

As a second generation musician and third generation youth educator, I’m so happy to be a member of The Soulard School staff as Strings Instructor.  I received my Bachelor of Music in viola performance in 2014 from Southeast Missouri State University. I have extensive training in the Suzuki Violin Method, studying Books I, II, and III at the University of Memphis (2014-15) and Book IV at Otterbein University (2016). I finished my Elementary Education certification in August 2018.

In addition to teaching at TSS, I maintain two private string studios, in Cape Girardeau and St. Louis. I’m also fortunate to have an active performance schedule in the greater St. Louis area. I play violin and viola regularly with the Saint Louis String Quartet, the Keough String Quartet, and the Matt McCallie Jazz Orchestra. I am also part of the music ministry at St. Peter Church in Kirkwood playing the weekly contemporary mass on Sunday evenings as well as special holiday masses.

I live in Affton with my wife, Nicole and our two cats Keiffer and Nettie. We are very excited to be welcoming our first child, daughter Tallis, in December! In my spare time I enjoy thrift shopping, researching my favorite historical time periods, and trying new restaurants. I look forward to meeting and connecting with everyone in The Soulard School community!
