I teach private voice lessons online via Skype; lessons are recorded to mp3 for you to practice to. (In-person lessons in Nashville, TN will resume in April 2017.) The pedagogy I teach stems from a focus in vocology (so that singers can make the sounds their styles and stories demand safely & efficiently) and personally I have a passion for working with artists & songwriters, helping them find their voices using technique as a tool, rather than a style in itself. If you're interested in lessons, please message me below for rates and schedule!
SOME RECENT STUDENT REFERENCES:
“Allie really helped me understand the mechanisms that help you sing, and how to work to improve on them. She gives straightforward, easy to follow instruction, and gives you a clear path to your goals, all the while maintaining your “sound”. The best and most effective vocal coaching sessions I’ve had!” ~Alice Kristiansen
"As my vocal coach, Allie has given me the confidence and skill to expand my musical range. She provides challenging warmup exercises that improve my vocal reach. Most importantly, Allie has a wonderful way of honoring my unique style and my vocals have matured tremendously under her guidance." ~Hannah, age 14
”I have always loved to sing and have been good enough, but Allie has taken my voice and my confidence to places I never imagined possible! More than that, she is a wonderful teacher, so much fun to work with and she answers all of my questions with kindness and patience! I have learned so much from her and using her unique methods!" ~ Michele D.
"Working with Allie has truly been a wonderful experience for me; I have made noticeable gains as a singer, and I continue to do so using what she has taught me. She has expanded my general awareness of how my instrument works, giving me the knowledge to produce stronger vocals when necessary. I am performing smoother transitions between my bridges and have more control of my voice as a result of her thoughtful exercises and coaching. I highly recommend!" - Evangelia P.
“A year ago I started working with Allie to improve my vocal accuracy in the studio and to become a better collaborator with respect to a current duo project. I record specific practice exercises when we work together, in person, and she shares the virtual recordings that we make during remote sessions. Now I get a lot more out of my personal practice sessions. My work with her improves my breathing, my listening, and the way I shape my words and tone.” - David G.
