Three Generations of Piano Players
The Salas Family
James Geltemeyer (grandfather of the girls), Amara Salas, Savana Salas, Abby Geltemeyer-Salas, Gwen Geltemeyer (grandmother), Carrie Shough (aunt).

Both paternal and maternal great-grandmothers of the girls played; the maternal great-grandmother saved up part of her teacher's check during World War 2 while great-grandfather was fighting in the Navy so she could buy a piano to play to keep herself company. My mother (Amara and Savana's grandmother) now has that 80-year old piano. The paternal grandmother bought her piano in 1956; the girls' great aunt now has that piano. Amara and Savana play on the piano my sister and I learned on from 1980.


Congratulations to Jose Salinas, freshman at Glenda Dawson High School in Pearland, TX, for being selected as the winner of the 2018 TBA Student Melody Competition. Mr. Salinas began playing the tenor trombone in 6th grade band and plays the bass trombone in his high school wind ensemble. Jose also plays the piano and likes to compose music and just recently wrote a piece for his high school choir. In addition to playing in his school’s ensembles, Jose is a member of the Houston Youth Symphony and studies Music Theory at Allegro Pearland Academy of Music.


Farewell to Ms. Victoria King!

Ms. Victoria King, our beloved Academy Coordinator, will be starting her new life in Florida with her family.  Her bright smile and caring voice will be missed by all.  Victoria has been a very special part of the academy and we wish her all the best in Florida! Victoria's last day with the academy is Tuesday, May 15th.
Please Welcome Ms. Jennifer Coman!
We are thrilled to have Ms. Jennifer Coman on board as our new Academy Manager.  Jennifer is warm and caring and delighted to care for our Allegro families and get to know each one of you.   Send all questions & concerns regarding scheduling, recital, camps, etc. to jennifer@allegroacademypearland.com or call the academy at 713-452-9402.
Fun and motivating
Summer is the perfect time to break from the routine and learn music!
Greater Focus
Without the worries of homework, sports games and practices, you can devote time and attention to music. Better focus leads to better practice!
Time for Something New
Summer is the best time to try out a new instrument or two!
No Backtracking in the Fall
Stay ahead of the game and keep making progress through the summer!

Fusion of the Arts Performance
Select students who continue summer lessons will be invited to perform at Fusion of the Arts in August. All students are invited to attend this family friendly event that show cases Pearland's best fine arts programs. Mayor Tom Reid just might be there for your performances again this year. 
We know many of you have summer plans and we hope you have tons of cool adventures! Since Allegro Pearland Academy of Music is open year-round, it's a good idea to start thinking about summer now!
Q. “How do lessons work in the summer?”
A. The Academy is open year-round, and we do not close in the summer.
Q. “Do a lot of students quit in the summer?”
A. We actually grow in enrollment during the summer months! Some students withdraw, but we get a huge influx of new students for the summer who continue into the fall.
Q. “How full is the Academy?”
A. Many of our teachers are sold out and stay sold out. We maintain a waiting list year-round for prime-time spots!
Q. “If we withdraw for the summer, can we keep our spot for fall?”
A. Lessons are first come, first serve; so if you withdraw for the summer, we cannot guarantee that we will have a spot for you in the fall, as we will open the spot to new students.

The big questions for all parents and students to consider are:

Do you want to keep the same time slot in the fall?
Do you want to have a spot with the Academy in the fall?

If the answers are YES, there are TWO WAYS to keep your spot with the Academy!
Please contact the Academy to learn how to save your spot!

We’re here to help you!

We are proud to announce that our
Music of Mermaids Camp has SOLD OUT! 

It's going to be a great summer!
3 spots left!

Recital performance practice at the studio:

The week of May 14th -18th Students who take lessons at the studio will take the last 10 minutes of the lesson to “rehearse” for another student and teacher in the studio.  This is a great chance for them to feel like they have an audience and play on a different piano. The other teacher’s student will also play for us. 

Students who take lessons in-home will take the last 10 minutes of the lesson to “rehearse” for another family member, friends and teacher. This is a great chance for them to feel like they have an audience.

We want to thank everyone who shared this special day with us for the Allegro Pearland Academy of Music Ribbon cutting that took place on April 26th. 
Big Powerful Media will be photographing the recitals this year and capture incredible shots throughout each student's performance. They will have a stand set up in the atrium after each recital for any photo and video purchases. A link will also be sent after the recitals to view and purchase the photos and videos of each student's performance.

Save the date for the Spring Recitals!

May 19th, 2018 & June 3rd, 2018

Allegro Academy's Spring Recitals will take place on Saturday, May 19th and Sunday, June 3rd at San Jacinto College South - Marie Spence Flickinger Fine Arts Center  (13735 Beamer Road Building #15 Houston, TX 77089)

We look forward to many exciting performances from our students this year!  Our annual awards ceremony and a reception will follow the recitals.
