Allegra Yellin grew up in Brooklyn, NY, in a family full of musicians, sometimes on tour with her father, a jazz saxophonist and also singing 3 part harmonies with her Bluegrass-pickin’ uncles. She studied music formally beginning in high school, and later at the Jazz school here in Berkeley and she is currently working towards a Master’s degree in Music Education at Holy Names University in Oakland. Allegra has been teaching music and movement classes for young children and families for the past 15 years with East Bay Music Together. She also teaches various types of classes and private lessons for all ages on guitar, banjo and voice. Outside of the classroom, Allegra has performed and collaborated with many local talents and can be seen performing old time string band music every first Friday of the month with the Squirrelly String Band, at the North Oakland Squaredance.
