Testimonials About Allison Rozsa Evans
In addition to being a highly skilled singer and teacher, Allison is friendly, professional, and organized. She tailors her lessons for each student, helping me, for example, to incorporate my guitar into our lessons and to work on Beatles tunes and other bands that I listen to. These are all qualities you might take for granted, until you experience a teacher who is not professional or not invested in you.
It’s rare to meet a coach who is both professional and with great personality and she is both. If I said everything about her that I could say this review would be the length of an essay. The most important lesson I learned from her is that great singing takes TIME to develop. Be patient with yourself. That’s essential in a day of instant singing sensations, auto tune and studio magic.
I highly recommend her as a teacher because she gets to know you and teaches you in a very tailored, individual way. She is also very supportive and encourages her students to get out, perform, and use the skills she has taught. And she hosts an annual recital for all of her students to perform for their family and friends, which is a lot of fun.
