Private students at Allegro are encouraged to be part of groups as much as possible. This is especially true for our strings players.

Allegro Youth Orchestra is a place where students can begin creating music and collaborating with artists playing other orchestral instruments. This is a great place for students to apply what they learn in their private lessons to the ensemble. Learning to work in a group setting, listening to one another, and taking direction are all skills learned in orchestra.
