★★★★★ I have been taking voice lessons for about one month now at Allegro (after having taken voice lessons since 2005 and being part of a Bigband for about 4 years). I am very happy with the quality of teaching and the service. I can only recommend to check Allegro out.

November Teacher Anniversaries!
Join us in celebrating our highly qualified and experienced teachers
Tommy Dominick, 2015 Teacher of the Year, has been a professional musician for more than thirty years performing as a local, studio and touring musician. He was born and raised in Southern California and started playing music at the age of sixteen and received his formal music education from Cal Poly University, Pomona, Calif. He was the bass player/keyboardist for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominee, Michael Bruce, guitarist- songwriter from the original Alice Cooper Group. Tommy enjoys history, quiet walks, gardening, reading, online gaming and 3D computer animation.
My name is Louisa Muir and I have been teaching piano and violin for over 12 years. I started out as a violin tutor to students in my high school orchestra, then began teaching as an assistant to my local community youth orchestra. I went to college at Northern Arizona University where I studied piano and violin performance, graduating Summa Cum Laude with a BA in Music. Since college I have taught both piano and violin lessons to students of all ages and abilities. I have a great deal of experience teaching very young children, and I strive to keep music lessons fun, stress-free and encouraging. I incorporate music related games and activities into my lessons, which helps keep music theory and ear training fun and exciting. I also encourage the study of a wide range of musical styles, including classical, blues, ragtime, and popular music. My performance experience includes the Flagstaff Symphony, the Flagstaff Chamber Orchestra, Prescott Symphony, and the Prescott Pops Symphony. I have also played as a piano accompanist with The Prescott Master Chorale.
for sharing your passion, your skill and your dedication with our students!

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
