Alison Lund

I offer a joyful and personalized approach to top quality piano lessons, designed to nurture creativity and the love of music within every student. With over 20 years teaching experience, I have successfully prepared 68 piano and voice students for RCM exams Preparatory through Level 8, with an average mark of 83 (First Class Honors). My students regularly win Regional Awards and participate in the Carnegie Hall Celebration of Excellence recitals. Music becomes an integral part of my students lives and personal growth. My relationship with families is warm and collaborative, reflected in a 100% student retention rate since 2019. We have at least four recitals each year, including informal events to build connection and community. Students have additional performance opportunities with Piano Teachers Congress and other NYC organizations. I believe that creativity and mastery go hand in hand, and that a sense of curiosity and musical adventure must be cherished at every level of development. I am passionate about teaching people, not just piano, and value every one of them as unique individuals with their own musical path to follow. The RCM curriculum is the backbone of a complete musical education, but students also connect with non-classical repertoire, and integrate everything they learn through composition. As voice teacher and vocal coach (preparatory through professional), I help singers develop vocal ease and self-expression through healthy technique and authentic connection to the musical 'heart' of each song. I am passionate about mentoring my students and sharing the language of music. I hope you will consider joining us, not just with high levels of achievement in mind, but also the wish to support your child's growth as uniquely creative, self-confident and expressive beings.
