I have over twenty years of teaching experience and hold two Master's degrees: one in Music and one in Education. I work with students ages 7 to 70 from beginners through late intermediate levels. Willing to travel to your home for lessons, as long as you have an acoustic piano. Twice a year, students will participate in a recital to showcase their newly acquired skills. I look forward to working with you.
Teaching privately in conjunction with a teaching position in the Paradise Valley Unified School District. My teaching schedule for piano is mostly evenings and weekends.
On weekdays, I keep busy as a full-time music educator in the public school system. I teach at two elementary schools (Beginning Band) and one middle school (Band, Strings, and Piano).
Approved area: Music, PreK-12

I like playing the trumpet
Allan is very professional yet fun, and explains things in a way I can understand! Excellent instructor! Thanks
We liked the trumpet lesson with Mr. walker very much. My son is encouraged to play the trumpet now!!!
Allan worked so well with my daughter. He follows her pace so to not frustrate her. I love the choice of songs he has her playing!!
He is excellent at working with you at a comfortable pace and is super helpful and friendly
First lesson was great. My son is learning and really enjoyed his time with Allan.
I liked Allan very much, he was very patient and very knowledgeable and learned a lot in 30 minutes
Very professional. Able to keep the attention of my seven-year-old for the whole half hour ! I think he'll make a lot of progress.
I find Allan to be very caring and nurturing in his teaching. Very patient. Would recommend.
Mr Walker is outstanding! He is teaching both my kids trumpet and piano lessons for past 2 months. He is patient, kind as well as firm/gentle at the same time. My kids really like him and lessons are going very well. Thank you Mr. Walker!. We really appreciate you!.+ Read More
Allan taught piano to my two children for over four years. He was always very kind and patient with each of them, teaching them the fundamentals first and then building on those skills with progressively more difficult pieces. The twice yearly recitals taught my children memorization skills and presentation poise. I would highly recommend Allan as a piano teacher!+ Read More
