What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Allison has her bachelors degree and Jeremy is a credentialed school teacher. After getting her degree, Allison was certified as a Music Together Center Director and a Music For Young Children teacher. She is also part of the Music Teacher's Association of California and Fresno. Our teachers actively continue their own studies privately and also are active performers.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
My husband and I love children and arts. We were both tired of working unfulfililng office jobs in fields we were not trained in. I decided to start a side teaching business and almost a year later, we've been able to open our own studio building and offer classes. It was all very organic. We made a lot of relationships in our community and our families have been so supportive. With all that help, we've been quite successful!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
We just had our first studio recital! Seeing people aged 3 to 20 come together and perform is incredible! Not only the level of preparation is notable, but the fact we've gained such trust from families in the community. We really see ourselves as mentors, more than teachers. More like family than a "studio." We hope to continue that legacy of community in our business.
