Hello! My name is Allison, and I have been composing/ performing and teaching music lessons for the past 20 years. Growing up with my father as a symphony director and music teacher in WI, I have a background in nearly every instrument, with a focus on piano, cello, harmonium, and jazz vocals. I teach beginning piano and have two solo piano albums, Music from Within and Seasons, which can be found on Cdbaby and Amazon.com. I teach beginning cello and have experience playing in the UNCA symphony, I teach and have experience singing jazz professionally for 20 years, and also teach and perform Harmonium and kirtan music, often played in yoga studios.
Please contact me if you or someone you love has interest in learning any of these wonderful instruments! I am a very kind and patient teacher, and will take the time to help you create a solid foundation from which to learn and grow. I look forward to hearing from you!
I love helping to bring more music into the world and into peoples lives! I am a very patient and thorough teacher who will take time with you and I love to help people learn and grow during the development of learning an instrument.
Allison is tuned into the needs of the person that she is working with. She is very flexible and doesn’t have preconceived notions on how the session should proceed. Her music is beautiful, we own both of her CDs and listen to repeatedly. She is very talented and plays a variety of Instruments as well as writing her own music. I highly recommend Allison and her music will bring you both peace and joy.
As an adult beginner, it was important to me that my cello instructor was patient, knowledgable, and understanding of occasional obstacles to weekly practice. Allison is all of the above. She sets realistic goals in a warm, encouraging manner. She also inspires me to explore on my own, and calls out my inner self-critic when needed! It's been wonderful learning with Allison and my lesson has been a highlight of my week.
Standard lesson prices are:
$20 for 30 mins
$30 for 45 min
$40 for 1 hour
Are you a beginning student and would like to learn an instrument for the first time? Or familiar with an instrument or singing already, and would like to learn more about it or a new technique? I would be happy to help you learn from the beginning.
