Testimonials
"I was once a student of Ms. Alison from grade school all the way into High school and I can not say enough about how great she is at teaching music. Her style of teaching is very adaptable to all different kinds of learners. She knew exactly what kind of music I wanted to play and helped me work up to many very difficult pieces, all while setting my own pace. She also snuck in quite a bit of music theory into my lessons to help me later (though I never could have thought how the dreaded music theory could benefit me in any way). I always left her lessons feeling like I had accomplished something amazing." - Spencer Neitz, age 19
"Ms. Alison!  Piano could NEVER be boring! I LOVE piano! " - Sadie, age 5

"Ms. Alison taught our daughter for over 6 years and worked closely with us to address our daughter’s unique learning style while continuing to challenge her musically and artistically. We highly recommend Ms. Alison!" - Emy Zener


"My daughter has thrived while studying with Alison. She always understands exactly what level my daughter is at, and what she needs to learn to advance to the next level. Other teachers we tried previously were positively apathetic in comparison to Alison. Following the Royal Conservatory of Music curriculum and annual grade level testing has been motivating for my daughter, who needs a "reason" to practice. Alison also stands out as a piano teacher because she not only cares about what goes on in her weekly lessons, but also what happens at home during valuable practice time. Over the years she has created systems to aid parents and kids with the dreaded nightly practice sessions. Most recently, Alison has begun using the Better Practice App with her students, and truly it has saved my sanity (and increased nightly practice time by a lot!). If your child is serious about wanting to learn how to play the piano well, Ms. Alison is a great teacher."

"My daughter has a flourishing enthusiasm for playing the piano! Ms. Allison has a serious, but fun approach to teaching. She instills a respect for music and the dedication it takes to become a pianist." - Sasha Domnitz
Ms. Alison is an AMAZING teacher. Our boys ADORE her, as do I for a multitude of reasons. First of all, Ms. Alison is the perfect mixture of fun and discipline. I appreciate that both the boys and I can feel comfortable asking her any type of question about music and know she won't laugh. She also has a great working knowledge of human anatomy and how it relates to posture, fingering, and one's wrists. In addition, she encourages the boys to compose their own pieces. While practicing traditional piano is lovely, I'm certain our boys enjoy letting loose a bit and playing just for fun!

"It is extremely rare to meet someone like Ms. Alison who is such a delight and such a master teacher who brings out the best in her students. She is so aware of and in tune with the whole teaching process--gently inspiring each step of progress so the whole learning experience is effortless. Ms. Alison is unique in being so personable, so alive, and so down to earth. Her own incredible talents in piano and singing and even composing make you feel honored to be working with someone so gifted."  - Donn Wiedershine, adult student
"Ms. Lund's talents far surpass her profound abilities as a voice and piano teacher, she also instructs her students to be aware of their emotional expression, physical appearance and speech, tools that will translate well into adulthood.  My daughter Tamar is 13 and has grown tremendously under Ms. Lund's instruction.  In the past year she has become a more mature, articulate and confident young lady."

"Can we do theory?  I LOVE theory!"  - Marah, age 5
