Alison gives regular masterclasses in the world’s leading conservatoires and universities to young professional singers with recent visits to the Netherlands, Norway, Greece, Poland, Israel, US, Italy and Hong Kong.

She is also in great demand by highly motivated amateur singers helping them to fulfil their potential and enjoyment of vocal repertoire by giving workshops for them around the UK and in Europe.

Her lecture on “The holistic approach to the use of the voice through the balance of mind, body and emotion” has been well received by singers worldwide. For Alison's website, click here.
