Allison V.

Houston, TX

About Allison

My musical journey began with piano lessons at age 8 followed by flute lessons the next year. My passion for the flute grew as I played in school bands from 4th to 12th grade. I attended Southwestern University from 2009 to 2013 and graduated with a BM in Music Performance on the flute (magna cum laude) and gave private lessons throughout most of my college career with great success. I have performed in several ensembles including the flute choir, wind ensemble and orchestra at SU, as well as The Gilbert and Sullivan Society of Austin Orchestra in their production of The Mikado. I currently p
lay as a soloist as well as with the Shimmer Flute Choir and Sounds of Silver Flute Quartet, and am an active member of the Houston Flute Club.

Although classically trained I also enjoy classic rock and appreciate music from other cultures as well.

Fun Fact: In college I arranged Three Dog Night's Joy to the Word/Jeremiah was a Bullfrog for flute quartet which has been performed on two separate occasions and was well received!

I frequently write arrangements for flute choir and other ensembles, and so I can help students who want to learn more about arranging and composition.

In addition to the flute I also have experience with the piccolo, alto, and bass flute. I love performing and I share my passion for music with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
I offer lessons that cover just about every aspect of flute-playing. Students can expect to become well-rounded musicians that are knowledgeable about flute technique, tone, music theory and history. I use the Rubank Method with handout supplements. The biggest changes I've seen in my students after a few months is a better understanding of how to practice efficiently as well as improved tone.

I strive to make lessons fun and interesting. I do not consider myself strict, but I do not ignore bad habits. My goal is to see students improve. I want students to understand that playing an instrument is a lot of fun, but it is also a lot of hard work.

My teaching philosophy focuses on slow and deliberate practice of technique while still appreciating the expression and style of a piece. I never force a student to play a piece he or she does not like because I feel that doing so discourages practice and slows musical development. I like to encourage students to pick their own solos and partly base the lesson on whatever aspects of the solo need attention, as well as whatever else the student is working on. I try to use a variety of methods for explaining concepts including pictures, verbal descriptions, demonstrations, etc., depending on what works best for the student. I focus heavily on good posture and tone production, stressing on learning good playing habits at a young age. I believe that music lessons should be a fun and engaging part of a student's week. Ultimately my goal is to share my enthusiasm for music and my instrument with the student and deepen their love for the art.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio is located in the front room of my home and includes a music stand, piano and comfortable chairs in case parents would like to stay for the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I primarily concentrate on classical music, but I also have experience with extended techniques, which include singing and playing at the same time, key clicks, and multiphonics.

I learned a lot in my time with Allison. I loved how flexible and understanding she was with my busy schedule and I appreciated the freedom we had during the lesson. I feel that Allison has a good understanding of different techniques and implements them nicely while making the lesson feel stress free and open. Allison is GREAT!

I started both my 6 and 10 year old sons with Mrs. Long five months ago. My older son wanted lessons and my youngest wasn't really interested but follows his brother everywhere. Both the boys were very receptive of her teaching style immediately. She was very patient with my younger son's energy and he thoroughly enjoyed participating in the recital and performing for a group of people. My 10 year old has continued lessons and has learned so much in such a short amount of time. I am really impressed with her ability to keep it fun and entertaining for him. I can't wait to see what more he will learn.
