to Know


Why Orchestra?

All private students are encouraged to become involved in groups.  Allegro Youth Orchestra is just such a group. 

Students can begin creating music and collaborating with artists playing other orchestra instruments. They will begin applying what they have learned in their private lessons. 

Learning to work in a group setting, listening to one another, and taking direction are all skills learned in orchestra.

What are students saying. . . 

Our daughter has been a student at Allegro since 6th grade. She is now a very polished, professional bassist with honed skills, that only very knowledgeable instructors could instill in their students. She absolutely loves her Monday night orchestra rehearsals, as well as her private lessons with her beloved instructor, Mr. Scott Tester. 

The Allegro school is a true family experience for students and their families.
