"I love playing concerts and gigs, but teaching feeds my soul in a very different way. I love helping kids and adults do something that has brought me so much joy and happiness. I get so much satisfaction when I'm teaching, from helping a child hold the bow correctly to coaching someone through a difficult passage in a tune. I love seeing the surprised glee that appears on a students face when they suddenly find themselves making music." Alison

 "Alison is a great teacher. Her own playing is so solid and on point, it’s amazing how modest and humble she is giving her amazing talent. She makes the music so accessible… like every tune is easy. When I leave a lesson I feel like I can play anything." Patrick Shaughnessy, tin whistle student
