About Me

Linda Allen was born and grew up in Denver, Colorado.  She received her B.Mus.Ed, B.Mus., and M.Mus. degrees from the University of Colorado, Boulder. Ms. Allen also studied at Aspen School of Music, Aspen Colorado, and pursued further post-graduate studies at University of Iowa. She teaches piano, organ and music theory privately, served as a church organist/choir director, and performed as pianist/collaborative musician and organ recitalist. Linda has an interest in working with students of all ages and abilities.

My Musical Education Background

My music education may have started in womb, but the first encounters of effort were at age 3, learning the songs my mother taught me as I learned to accompany myself on the autoharp. That was followed by lessons on the accordian, piano, organ and violin through high school. My main interests were piano and organ. I attended Aspen School of Music and U. of Colorado where I received three degrees in music: B.Mus.Ed., B.Mus., M.Mus. Post-grad work followed at U. of Iowa.

Genres and Subjects Taught

I believe in teaching music on a conceptual basis utilizing and integrating theoretical concepts into the actual hands-on learning experience. I have successfully prepared students for college entrance as well as offered music experiences for hobbyists including beginner level adults.

Students are given the opportunity to study keyboard technique, theory/harmony, ear training, jazz concepts, sight reading, keyboard literature, music history and to engage in creative work utilizing music concepts as well as their own individual creativity.

All students are initially interviewed (at no cost) before being accepted.

Lesson Rates

Asking $75/hour, but negotiable frequency.

Ages / Skill Levels Taught

All levels - ages 7-adult

My Certifications and Awards

Three degrees in music: B.Mus.Ed., B.Mus., M.Mus. and post-graduate studies

My Musical Influences

I am influenced by many fields of endeavor, musical and otherwise. I am interested in how individuals perceive and conceptualize both intellectually and musically. I work with the individual to help them discover what is meaningful to them, as well as helping them find ways to express their creative identity.

Student Reviews

Seattle, WA

Though I had been playing for years, Linda helped me learn the basics of theory and technique in a new and logical way. She encouraged me to let my musical imagination take flight with creative and collaborative exercises. Linda worked hard to create stimulating lessons for me each lesson and I practiced like a fiend and enjoyed every moment of it.

Linda Allen gave over-the-top piano lessons that really challenged my son and helped him develop his skills and his presentation.
