Paloma Brava January 25th, 2017
“I was looking for a music school for my 8 year old beginner who was interested in piano. I took him in to visit the school based on good reviews on google and Facebook. We ended up signing up that very same day. One year later he is playing multiple pieces by himself at recitals. We are very pleased with his instructor, SunYoung. She is amazing and super patient. I was kind of bummed at first that the drive is so far for us but I’m happy to say it’s always been worth it. They do a great job at keeping the younger kids motivated to improve by giving them the opportunity to earn trophies and bracelets. I’d recommend this school to anyone.”
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.

New Songwriting Lessons!
With Laura Kepner-Adney!
Are you looking for help on a song you just can’t seem to get right?
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.
It’s EASY to get started! Just call the Foothills Office at (520) 670-9162
