78 New Students in March!
Congratulations to Selma Odoom, who has won a free month of lessons by checking-in to her lessons at Allegro in March!

“Our daughter has been taking lessons with Allegro the past 6 months. She has a recital coming up in May and she is developing the techniques to be a confident and successful piano player. As we get closer to recital day she is feeling happy and excited. Devin has been a great instructor keeping us on a timeline with homework and how to practice at home. When we lost focus from hustle and bustle of life, there was a gently nudge back in the right direction and we have been back on track since, plus she is about to receive her first piano trophy and she can’t wait!! Thanks Devin and Allegro!! Also white board for my 2 year old to draw on has been a great addition to the Northwest location!”
Thanks for your 5 star reviews!

Neil A. Russakoff Memorial Scholarship
The Neil A. Russakoff Scholarship has been organized to provide funding for interested music students who wish to study at Allegro School of Music. Beginning in 2017, the scholarship will be offered to one student annually who exhibits a unique dedication to and love of music. During the selection process, consideration will be given to the applicant’s financial need, work ethic, and musical talent. We plan to expand the Scholarship Fund and its outreach annually.
The scholarship seeks to honor and memorialize the life of Dr. Neil A. Russakoff, who died on September 23, 2016 of complications from bone marrow transplantation due to chronic lymphocytic leukemia. Neil attended Allegro School of Music from 2002-2016 and studied the electric, acoustic and classical guitar. Neil enjoyed playing music from a wide range of styles: especially music by Doc Watson, Leo Kottke, Lynyrd Skynyrd and J.S. Bach. Beyond his musical life, Neil was a respected pediatrician, husband, father, and avid sports fan, known for his gentle and kind spirit.
Neil continued to attend his guitar lessons during most of his 5 year battle with cancer. His grit, work ethic and unwillingness to give up on what he loved is an inspiration that we will continue to carry with us.
It is this spirit of hard work, love of music, and integrity that we hope to nurture through the Neil Russakoff Scholarship.
2017 Winner- Kathleen Enriquez, Violin
*The deadline for 2018 scholarships is November 30th, 2017. *Interested students may apply HERE

Are you wondering how to build your first melody?
If the answer is “YES”, songwriting lessons are for you!
Ages: 13 and up
Required experience: a minimum of 2 years of instrumental lessons (other than vocal lessons), OR a team of 2 with one vocalist and one instrumentalist.
Description: Songwriting students will learn the basics of song craft, then delve into its subtleties and intricacies. Ideal for self-driven individuals 13 and up, these once-a-week lessons will guide students through a first writing experience OR help improve intermediate skills. All genres welcome! We focus on song form, chord structure, melody, harmony, figurative language, and exercises to help jumpstart the process. Students will learn the value of recording and studio-preparedness and will be offered the option to make simple multi-track recordings in lessons. Sequential lessons will help each student build a catalogue of songs.
