Allison is a vocalist and pianist who has performed all over the nation. She recently graduated from the University of Central Florida where she studied under Priscilla Bagley, David Brunner, Robin Jensen and other music professionals.

Allison has performed for a wide variety of audiences across the United States. Allison was one of the youngest members in the Naples Philharmonic Chorale, and was scouted to be a paid performer for Trinity-by-the-Cove in Naples, Florida. She has sung under choral legend Paul Salamunovich in North Carolina. Allison also sang with the University of Central Florida’s University Choir and Chamber Singers performing works such as Beethoven’s 9thSymphony and Mahler’s 2ndSymphony with the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra. She has also served as a worship leader at First Baptist Church of Orlando.

In addition to the classical music world, Allison is also a musical theatre performer. Allison has starred in productions such as Grease (Sandy) and All Shook Up (Natalie/Ed). She has performed in the nationally recognized Orlando Fringe Festival and just finished a production of Leonard Bernstein’s Mass: A Theatre Piece for Singers, Player, and Dancer at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

As a piano and voice teacher Allison firmly believes in making music be musical. Theory is the foundation that allows for the music to speak to the performer and the audience. Allison believes in teaching the theory yet also making the notes on the page come alive. She makes a point of including music and styles that each student is passionate about to help them discover what music has to offer. Because without the arts, without music, where would society be?
