What We Believe
We believe that the best way to learn music is with one-on-one, private instruction. Each lesson is tailored individually, for the way the student learns best. We take into account age, experience, personality, and learning style. We teach ages 5 - adult! It's never "too late" to learn how to play music.

One-on-one attention
Students in private lessons are able to learn the type of music they personally are most interested in.  Our teachers can focus 100% of their attention on that one student to ensure that hand positioning, posture or the understanding of a particular concept are correct.  If a student has a particular difficulty in one area, the teacher can work on it without hampering the progress of a class of students and alternatively, if a student is excelling in one area, the teacher can move on. We offer 30 minute, 45 minute, and 1 hour lessons.  

Our school is equipped to offer music lessons for students of all ages and abilities, from beginners to very advanced students.  We offer every style of lessons from classical to jazz and pop.  

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT WILL I LEARN IN MUSIC LESSONS?
Our teachers understand that every student is an individual, with personal musical needs and goals. We make it a priority to tailor how we teach and what we teach to your individual needs.

If you enroll here for lessons, your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child. Together, you will develop a plan to achieve your goals! We love beginners, so even if you don't know where to begin, we can help!

WHAT STYLES OF MUSIC CAN I LEARN?
We teach all styles from classical, rock, pop, jazz, country, worship, and blues. We provide a well rounded lesson with the music YOU want to play. With 30 teachers at Allegro Pearland Academy of Music, you are sure to find the best match for YOU.

ARE YOUR INSTRUCTORS QUALIFIED?
Allegro offers a highly qualified teaching faculty. Our instructors have performed at Carnegie Hall, with Houston Symphony, Houston Grand Opera, The Texas Medical Center Orchestra, Da Camera Houston and throughout Europe. Our award winning faculty have many years of teaching experience and most importantly a passion for teaching. Being a musician doesn't automatically make you a teacher. That's why we search for those who are best qualified for mentoring our music students. We search the entire Pearland and Houston areas for the top teachers, who embody the high values of Allegro Pearland Academy of Music. Most importantly, our instructors strive to relate their teaching to each individual student's learning style. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly, and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level. We search high and low for the BEST teachers, so you don't have to!

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO LEARN AN INSTRUMENT?
There is no set answer of how long it takes to learn an instrument. With regular practice, a basic level of playing can be accomplished in a few months. Most of our students take lessons on a long term basis because they want to be constantly improving and they find the lessons enjoyable.

I DON’T HAVE ANY MUSICAL BACKGROUND OR ABILITY. CAN I STILL HELP MY CHILD PRACTICE? 
Yes. Even if you don't have a musical background you can ask the teacher for advice on how to help your child practice. By simply monitoring that they are doing exercises a certain number of times per day the student will progress. Parents will occasionally sit in on their child's music lesson to get an idea of the proper way a song should sound or how the student should be positioning their hands.

GUITAR & UKULELE LESSONS
Our guitar & ukulele teachers teach rock, blues, metal, country and classical guitar lessons on electric and acoustic instruments. Beginner students can expect to work on chords, simple songs and melodies, sight reading, and theory. We balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson you are challenged with a new technical or theory concept, but always end with something fun such as your favorite riff or song. We use a variety of method books to accomplish this and encourage students to bring CDs or their iPod to their lesson to learn their favorite tunes. Our teachers can even help you with instrument repair: such as the set up of your instrument or replacing your strings!

VOICE LESSONS
Our private voice teachers are classically trained and provide technical vocal instruction in any style of music the student would like to sing. If you would like to develop your voice to its fullest potential we have the right voice teachers for you. Voice students spend time each week doing physical exercises to improve their vocal range, ear training, breath control, vibrato, tone production, enunciation and more. All voice students set goals with their teacher to work toward developing their own unique voice.

Vocal Apprentice Program

Students age 5-9 who are interested in singing but not yet old enough for formal voice lessons are encouraged to start with piano lessons with an emphasis on voice. The vocal apprentice program is a 30 minute piano lesson held once per week that focuses on learning to read music, play the piano, develop the ear, and light singing as well. This format allows the student to build all the skills necessary to be successful in technical voice lessons which begin at age 10.

Classes and Programs

Pearland Youth Orchestra

The Pearland Youth Orchestra serves to provide the opportunity for Pearland youth to perform with an orchestra. The orchestra is available to students in 5th grade-high school. The Pearland Youth Orchestra performs a Winter Concert, Spring Concert, and at select special events and festivals. Students must be in private lessons and remain in private lessons while performing with the orchestra. There are many benefits to performing with the Pearland Youth Orchestra. Students learn to work together to accomplish a shared task while developing leadership skills, interpersonal skills, and applying what they have learned in lessons.  Additionally, students progress at a faster rate than with private lessons alone.
