I took vocal lessons with Ellen for about five years. When I began, I had little confidence. I was just someone who enjoyed singing. With Ellen, I was able to hone various techniques that have made me immensely more confident in singing both classical and musical theater pieces. I always looked forward to my lessons with Ellen, knowing that if I was struggling with something she could take a different approach in warming up my voice or in helping me understand the music.

Ellen is a fantastic teacher and works very well with children. It has been a joy to work with her and we look forward to many more lessons on minuets, gavottes and other pieces.

What a gift to have aligned with Ellen. I started vocal lessons with her maybe now 3 years ago. During our lessons, Ellen holds space for me to practice. While it is my job to practice at home and come prepared with what I want to work on or what I am struggling with.... Ellen is attentive and playful so it makes it a great match for me to feel comfortable throughout the learning process. These lessons are some of the favorite moments of my life! I can’t wait to continue to practice and learn thus expressing myself through the art of music.

For the past three years we have known Ellen Allen. My three children enjoy their lessons with her, and they have grown so much in their musicality and skill under her direction. One of my children studies violin, and two of my children study piano, with Ellen. I also went to Ellen for voice lessons, and still recall much of her direction: she is professional, kind, practical, and dependable. Our family is thrilled to have found her, and continue to be amazed at Ellen's versatility as she is such a gifted teacher in violin, piano, and voice.
