With years of experience in photography and web building, Alpha-Siren Sandy Connolly leads the Super 9 Studios team. Always cheerful, her infectious laugh and radiant smile belie her formidable project management skills. Basically, she gets thing done. And she will make sure you get things done, too, ensuring that your project progresses toward completion as quickly as possible. Nothing makes her happier than crossing off items on production schedules.
Sandy develops websites working in WordPress and the Elementor page builder. Need to setup an online store? Sandy builds e-commerce sites using WooCommerce. In running her own music teaching studio, Crescendo Music Loft, Sandy needed a platform for developing online curriculum for her vocal and piano students when the COVID-19 pandemic hit and remote learning became necessary. Learn Dash became her go-to curriculum builder.
When she’s not building websites, taking pictures, or untangling IT issues for clients, Sandy enjoys figuring out new ways to cram music theory and fundamentals into the brains of all her voice and piano students.

Kirsten Livingston, Second Siren of Super 9 Studios, works behind the scenes ensuring an orderly flow of work material.

She also works in Photoshop and InDesign to produce Crescendo Music Loft’s beautiful Clef Notes Blog emails. She also updates websites for our continuing customers and offers technical support for clients using MailChimp, Zoom, and Google Calendar integration.
Kirsten studies yoga and freelances in her spare time. She grew up in Columbia, MD and Madison, CT.
