Student Testimonials

“Allison is such a kind, supportive, patient teacher. As a beginner in singing, I found her to be extremely helpful. I now feel that I am a much better singer because of her.”

– Stephanie Smit

“One of the nicest vocal teachers anyone could hope to have. Super easy to work with, attentive to my questions, and suggests workable solutions to vocal training.”

– Sirpa Jones

“I am really fortunate to have found a teacher who takes pride in helping her students achieve their individual goals, and provides them with what they need to improve their technique and vocal range, while making it fun and enjoyable!  Allison is focused on giving feedback specific to my needs in order to help me get what I need to improve.”

– Suma Prakash

“I have been working with Allison for the last three years, and her positive attitude and constant encouragement have helped me learn and progress so much in both vocal performance and music theory. Her approach to teaching is non-intimidating, fun, and truly enjoyable. Allison is a pleasure to work with and learn from; her wealth of knowledge in music is always so helpful and appreciated, and her passion for teaching and performing is inspiring.”

– Gabriella Albino

“It is a pleasure and privilege singing with Allison. She always makes our time together a positive experience.  The confidence she inspires is so exciting; she has you believing you can sing anything. A singing lesson often becomes a history lesson, a time to learn about cultural events in the city, and a time to laugh.”

– Sally Bradshaw

“I absolutely loved working with Allison. She is both a talented musician and teacher. She is personable, energetic, and obviously loves teaching music. She worked closely with me to understand my needs and create the perfect balance of technical training with the opportunity to work on songs that I really loved. I had a history of vocal nodules, so Allison tailored my lessons alongside instruction from my voice therapist. After working with Allison, I noticed a vast improvement in my vocal range and strength. I always looked forward to my lessons. I would recommend her as a teacher to anyone.”
