About this pro
Allison Cannon is not only a decided musician, but she is also passionate about teaching others. I've known Allison for eight years now and have heard her skill level advance with each passing year. She is hands down one of the most talented musicians I know for her age, and quite frankly most anywhere. She has done a multitude of performances and comes highly recommended by a well renown director, Patrick Henning. If you have the opportunity to work with this shinning-young, talented musician take everything you can in! She will teach you the skill you wish to have from the skill that still surpasses most well known artists.Aug 9, 2013

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge a flate rate $99.66 per month for 30 minute lessons. This is based on the total year offering 46 lessons. Some months there may be three lessons and other months five- this all depends on the calendar of scheduled off weeks (holidays, etc.)
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I always start with getting to know the student first: how they learn, and what interests they have. I give warm ups to begin, and exercises that work finger dexterity and coordination. Based on our first lesson which includes an evaluation, we pick our books to order. As we continue lessons we work from our books and with continued exercises. I always keep it fun and introduce new music to learn on top of the material given.
