*** 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.

I chose Alayne A. for my teen daughter's voice teacher based solely on her credentials, which are extremely impressive! However, actually getting to know Alayne and her style I am so very glad we chose her. My daughter has grown and it is due to Alayne's style and professionalism. Awesome teacher!

Alayne is a great listener, very flexible, and made the leason fun. I felt she made my goals a priority to fit into her lesson plan that still covered the basics. I appreciate having the CD to practice with at home.

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.
