Alice Wright Belden enjoys teaching the Suzuki way, books 1-6. She’s been doing this since 2006, having performed with violin since age 9. She has played with the Shreveport Symphony, Anchorage Symphony, and more recently Anchorage Civic Orchestra; also groups called Country Gospel and Arctic Strings. She and her late husband, Dr. George Belden sang with the Anchorage Concert Chorus.

Alice retired from the Anchorage School District, and has taught general music, orchestra, special education, regular and bilingual education. She recently relocated to the twin cities of Minnesota.

She is co-author, with LaVon Bridges, of the children’s book of songs and poems-ALASKA ANIMALS, WE LOVE YOU and ALASKA ANIMALS, WE LOVE YOU 2. These pieces employ the Orff instruments, as well as spoken ostinatos.

Alice is eager to re-establish her Suzuki studio in Cottage Grove, Minnesota.
