About the Teacher

I am excited to be teaching Music at HHES! Music has always been one of my first loves.  I received my B.F.A in Musical Theatre from East Carolina University in Greenville, NC.  I have enjoyed a diverse career singing, acting, and dancing on stage professionally as well as on a community level all over the U.S.; including New York, Massachusetts, Arizona, Florida, New Mexico, Ohio, and now Mississippi. Since moving to DeSoto County 14 years ago, I have had the privilege of performing with DeSoto Family Theatre and Kudzu Playhouse.  Additionally, I have directed numerous Allie nominated productions for Kudzu Playhouse as well as summer camp for DeSoto Family Theatre.

 My family and I, comprised of my husband Victor, Max age 18, Graham age 15, and Grey age 11, are Southerners by choice and have adopted Hernando as home. We love to travel the world and make every opportunity to chase adventure at home and abroad.

I know that your children and I will have a fantastic year learning to play the ukulele, experiencing different genres of music, and deepening their love of music.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, comments, concerns, or kudos. Together, I am confident that we will have a tremendous year!


All my best,

Alayna Weiss

 Due to current circumstances and safety precautions, we will unfortunately not be able to hold choir this year.  I sincerely hope that we will be resume choir next school year.  The good news is that we will still be able to sing together and experience music in our weekly Music classes.

ANNOUNCEMENT:  Due to current circumstances and safety precautions, our Tiny Strings group will be on hiatus this year.  We hope to resume our group next school year.  The good news is that all 2nd and 3rd graders will learn to play the ukulele throughout the school year during their weekly Music class.  We will be taking extra precautions and undergoing stringent cleaning procedures between classes. We have a classroom set of ukuleles that will undergo the same cleaning procedures so students do NOT need to purchase a  ukulele to participate .  However, if students own a ukulele, they are welcome to bring it to class  on the days designated for uke practice.
