I was just accepted into the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City. Alida is a very thoughtful and talented teacher and I’m very lucky to train with her. I wouldn’t have been able to reach many of my achievements without all of her help.

I have been training with Alida for over three years now and it feels like everything has changed in my approach to singing as a result of working hard under her guidance. I sing in a band that gigs a lot. She introduced me to a technique that allows me to be able to perform several nights a week and still have a full, confident range and maintains the nuance in my singing. I am also an actor and find that I use the technique Alida has given me in all my work. I highly recommend Alida.

Since working with Alida, I have become more connected with my chest voice, which has not only improved my singing but also has significantly clarified my craft in acting. She is an inspirational teacher, always encouraging me to broaden my musical avenues by supporting guitar and songwriting. Alida has safely helped shape my voice enabling me to create a tone that is unique to me.

As a working songwriter in Nashville, I use my voice every day, and Alida’s attention to vocal health keeps me singing with ease throughout the week. I’ve been working with Alida now for three years, and I could not recommend her highly enough! What I value most however is her encouraging perspective. Thanks for showing me the beauty in my own voice!
