Ukulele Lessons (for adults)
Allison is a patient and caring teacher. I feel so lucky having been able to book lessons with her! There were times when I had to move our lessons around and she was very flexible and understanding. She's easy to work with and quick to respond. Her teaching style was great and I could tell that she was customizing the lessons per my learning style.Jan 3, 2018Verified
I have been going to Allison's class for a couple of weeks now. I think I have improved significantly and I am good enough at it to jam with my friends. :)Aug 14, 2017Verified
Solo Musician Entertainment
Allison was such a hit! Although I personally didn't interact with her on the big day, my husband said she was very professional and has great guitar skills. My husband is a musician as well and was able to appreciate the skills needed for the songs Allison played. We spoke via phone and text prior to the ceremony and provided some general request of the genre and musicians we liked. Allison exceeded our expectations. The value for her services is a steal. Thank you Allison!Oct 2, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My rates are estimated on time performing and traveling, starting at $150 an hour per performer. However, I love to learn new songs, so advanced requests are included in my services.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When I first connect with a customer, I found out the main needs of the event: 1) What kind of musical atmosphere? That can be created by acoustic or electric instruments; vocals or instrumentals; number of musicians; specific songs, bands, and genres 2) What are the physical requirements? Equipment available, equipment I need to bring; size of the event space, size of the performing space; where I can load in, where can I park; preferred attire: casual, professional, glamorous, costume 3) The event itself: I usually check in sometime the week of the event (unless it was booked within a week). I check in with the point person when I arrive, unless I have been instructed how to set up without checking in. I prefer the quickest and most painless process available for the needs of the event.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have studied piano since 1988 with a focus in classical and jazz, guitar since 1997 with a focus in folk and rock, and ukulele since 2001. I have worked with private tutors and graduated music theory classes. I have performed in front of audiences since the age of 8, starting in choir, continuing to do so solo, and playing with bands at age 16.
