- Allen -
Guitar and Autoharp Instructor + Beginning Piano
With musical experiences ranging from drumlines to handbell choirs to jazz combos, Allen recognizes a musician’s adaptability as their greatest asset. He began singing in church choirs before he could read, eventually adding piano, guitar, autoharp, bass, steel guitar, and percussion into his toolkit.
In high school, Allen developed a love of jazz, and improvisation still takes a key role in his approach even as his interests have shifted to folk and blues.
These days, Allen focuses on developing guitar as a solo instrument that can provide its own melody and accompaniment.
