I studied with Miss Allison for 4 years and through it all I gained the confidence, vocal technique, and sight reading skills to always keep growing as a performer. While I was a student in Miss Alison’s studio, I participated in the 2015 area all-state chorus and got lead roles in my high school musical and community theater productions. I’m so thankful I got to work with such a wonderful teacher, and am beyond excited to take my music career to the next level! This fall I’m studying at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, and I can’t wait to see what happens in the Big Apple! —Nicole Sember

With Miss Allison, I had so many opportunities to learn and perform outside of my weekly lessons. I sang in the 2016 area all-state chorus and performed in a masterclass with the Metropolitan Opera National Council winner, Kyle van Schoonhoven. Now, I’m studying music education at the State University of New York at Fredonia, and am grateful for the 4 years of preparation I had with Miss Allison. —Caroline Mattulke

I studied with Miss Allison for 6 years and cannot believe how far my voice has come since the beginning. I not only learned how to sight read, project confidence and personality on stage, and perform with proper vocal technique, but also to perform multiple languages, such as French, Italian, German and Latin. Miss Allison always pushed me to work hard and it payed off when I performed in area all-state choirs and landed the role of Mrs. Banks in Mary Poppins. Now I’m going to The State University of New York at Fredonia to study music education and vocal performance! —Emily Taylor
