Alyssa Marie Coon is a 13 year old singer, songwriter and musician from Florida, USA. She sings and plays piano, drums, guitar and ukulele and is currently learning to play other instruments as well.
Music has been a huge part of her life ever since she can remember.
At 2 years old, I knew all the songs from the Wizard of Oz and I would listen to them and sing them in the car.
I remember my family members being amazed that I knew all of the words to the songs and was singing on key.
At 6 years old, I started taking voice and piano lessons. My inner self confidence grew. I still am kind of quiet and shy but I am comfortable with myself now more than ever.
I eventually started performing at local events and for charities. I still perform today.
I knew at a young age that I wanted to be a musician. I continue to take different types of vocal lessons and music lessons. I sing and play classical, opera, folk, country and pop music. I am also in a performing arts
Music is definitely her life and has helped her in so many areas of my life. I memorize things easily. I sight read. I now have a photographic memory too.
I can’t stop thinking about music. I listen to all varieties of music. I enjoy finding out the meanings of songs and why they were written.
This encourages me to write my own songs with special meanings. Music is something I can’t stop thinking about.
I am working towards being a professional musician and having a career in music.
She enjoys performing at various venues, events and competitions throughout the state of Florida. Recently I became a part of Phil Collins’ Little Dreams Foundation.
My latest motto is: “If you can’t stop thinking about it, don’t stop working for it”. I’m working towards my dreams every day.
Don’t let anyone stop you. Only you can make your dreams a reality by working and not accepting no for an answer.
Focus on your dreams and don’t worry about what others are doing. Learn from others but don’t compare yourself to others.
Be supportive of others and they will support you. Stay away from negativity.
When not working with music, I enjoy photography, playing volleyball and getting together with my friends.
