I believe that training your voice in a healthy way is key to becoming a successful singer! I'm happy to help you with any goals that you have, and we'll create a lesson plan that works especially for you! I teach all levels of students from beginners to professional performers. I have successfully prepared students for auditions, and many of my students have been accepted to prestigious performing arts high schools and conservatories.

I've always had a passion for singing, and I began performing at a young age in community theater productions! As a singer/songwriter, I perform regularly around New York City with my band.

While studying at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, I performed as the lead vocalist in several performance ensembles, including The Art Blakey Ensemble and The Brazilian Jazz Ensemble. These ensembles were directed by world renowned jazz musicians.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very dedicated to teaching and performing all different styles of music! I begin all lessons with vocal technique, and I teach a wide range of repertoire including Jazz, Pop, Rock and Musical Theater!

Finding songs that are meaningful to you will have a strong impact on an audience, and can be life changing for you as a singer!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide a keyboard at my studio.

*** Travel Equipment ***
At a student's home I would need a keyboard or piano to be provided.

*** Specialties ***

Allie is a terrific singing teacher

My daughter has learned so much after only a few months of working with Allie. Her breath control, range and confidence have all improved and best of all she has fun with it. Allie's patience, skill and warm nature make for a great singing instructor.

Where is that singing coming from?

After giving it some time to examine, there is no doubt that this was the best decision I've made in a long time..... My daughter Amanda and Allie hit it off from day one... Amanda can be shy at times, but Allie made that impossible.. Allie is such a well spoken, polite and enlightening individual... Every time Amanda leaves the studio she seems to be so happy, proud and motivated... Amanda's singing has always been a pleasure to listen to, and I have noticed a big change in her attitude toward her practice, she has become a young lady with a mission. It is nice to see people who take pride in their work and have a passion for their teaching..
