Alison Rogers began her music studies at the age of 7. Her talent was instantly recognized and she was featured regularly as a young pianist in recital and on television. This was not enough for her and soon she pursued advanced studies as an organist. She was awarded an RCCO scholarship and studied organ with Dr. Mark Sirett starting in 1990.
Alison received a BA in History with a minor in Music from Wilfrid Laurier University in 2004, (principal instrumental work with Guy Few, trumpet). An interest in theory lead to private, post degree studies with Dr. Peter Nikiforuk in pursuit of ARCT theoretical certification. She presently holds a grade 8 RCM piano certificate, grade 5 Harmony and grade 5 Analysis.
Alison is very active in the musical community. She has played principal trumpet for Royal City Musical Productions and the University of Guelph Orchestra, worked as a musical director and pianist for summer camp programs, taught privately and sung first soprano with the Menno Singers. In 2011 she coordinated Christmas music for the City of Kitchener, facilitating the Christmas carolers for the downtown core and singing soprano herself.
