Faculty

Our general philosophy at Go Go Allegro is to make lessons as enjoyable and rewarding for the students as possible. We do that by hiring fun, positive, enthusiastic teachers. All of our teachers are music school alumni with various performance and teaching experience.

Each teacher is under contract with Go Go Allegro for a minimum of one school year. Teachers are screened, interviewed, and auditioned to ensure that they are musically proficient and excellent with children. They must share the same general philosophy about teaching and be genuinely kind, patient people. All of our teachers are highly trained conservatory musicians who are not only masters of the instrument they teach, but also genuinely enjoy teaching music! All teachers must clear the CORI background check in order to teach with Go Go Allegro.

If you’re looking for fantastic musicians who are passionate about teaching their instrument, you’ve come to the right place!
