Overview

I have been teaching and performing for over 35 years in my home studio in the Orlando area. I teach technique, all styles/genres, stage presence, mic technique, audition, & demo CD prep,and sight-singing, to ages 7 on up. I gear the lessons to the individual students' goals and needs. I have and have had many successful professional and talented amateur singers grow and progress within my studio. Many of them perform in nightclub venues, theme parks, and theatres in the Central Florida area. One of my former students, just opened for Lisa Loeb's concert in downtown Orlando. This same student, John, has 2 albums of his own, and several students are signed by recording labels and touring. Students are encouraged to use their talents and regularly perform in recitals, community theatre, church, school, and community choirs, contests,& talent shows.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach weekly lessons, with daytime and evening hours available, Monday through Thursday . I recommend an hour lesson. I give vocalizations to practice and develop good technique. Repertoire/songs are chosen by the student and myself. I encourage students to be well-rounded and try different genres/styles and even give me a "wish list" of songs they would like to learn. I give guidelines on how much to practice and what to practice. I help train the student's eye and ear and work with harmonization/parts, if needed. I help the student to develop their voice with strength, stamina, clarity, resonation, projection, expressiveness, and emotional impact. Progress will be continually evident throughout the students' study. Lessons are recorded on CD for every lesson, as this is a great efficient learning tool.

Broadway Singing · In studio
Ms. Alayne is a very professional, and great mentor. She recognizes a student's strengths and weaknesses. I admire her for her passion towards music. You can actually feel it through her teachings. I would most definitely recommend her to everyone.

I am currently studying Broadway under her, and so far it's been an awesome experience.

In such a short amount of time, I have learned a tremendous amount from my instructor. She is very knowledgeable, professional and helpful. I am sorry that I am not able to continue at this time due to finances. However, I would definitely sign up with her again if granted the opportunity. There's so much more to learn and already I am able to apply some of the techniques she has taught me.
