I am a classically trained singer. I have had the opportunity to perform with Northstar opera as Despina in Cosi Fan Tutti, Gianetta in The Elixir of Love, and Sara Brown in Guys and Dolls. I have also been fortunate in getting to play Margot in The Merry Widow, Pitti-Sing in The Mikado, and Spirit II in The Magic Flute with Townsend Opera. I sang with the Houston Symphony Orchestra Chorus for three years and Modesto Symphony Chorus for four year. I have enjoyed composing music for several local theater groups and enjoy writing my own music.
I decided to take lessons to put some fun in my life and prevent further injury to the eardrums of others. I am not a singer but Ally is turning me into one. Looking forward to future lessons.
She is an excellent instructor, knowing how hard to push your vocal skills while choosing songs that are fun.
Ally gave my daughter piano lessons and was fantastic! My daughter started when she was 7 and quite unsure of herself. Ally was very patient and encouraging, helping my daughter grow in her musical talent as well as her confidence outside the studio. Ally's music book collection covers both classical and pop music which helped to keep my daughter engaged. I would recommend her to anyone!+ Read More
As someone who hasn't been very comfortable singing, Ally has been absolutely wonderful in getting me to be more comfortable with my range. She is very knowledgeable about quality techniques to not only not strain my voice but to have clarity and intonation. She is very patient, nice, but also a perfectionist, which is great because I do not want mediocrity.
She has prepared me for audition pieces and continues to follow up on each one to build my repertoire.
Highly recommend for any one who is seeking to be more comfortable with their voice or help with auditions.
