Confident, Awesome Singing
Welcome! I'm glad you're here. Chances are you landed here because you're looking for confident, awesome singing.
Maybe you want to sound awesome yourself - you want to ace that upcoming audition, or learn to belt like a Broadway star. In that case, voice lessons or dramatic coaching might be for you!
Located in Reading, MA, my studio has served singers from the towns of Andover, Wilmington, Woburn, North Reading, and Lynnfield; as well as the North Shore towns of Beverly, Peabody, and Danvers.
Voice lessons are also available online, so you can work with me even if you live outside greater Boston!
If you are a director, conductor, or composer looking for a versatile, classically-trained soprano to perform your new work, collaborate on a project, or perform a solo in a concert work you're programming, let's chat! I have lots of experience as a concert soloist, chorister, and chamber musician, performing traditional as well as new works.
There are a few ways to work with me...
Whether you want to ace your next audition, reach those high notes in choir with ease, get ready for college auditions, or (re)discover your voice after all those years off from singing, voice lessons might be just the right thing for you!
My one-on-one, customized lesson packages are designed to serve YOUR needs and goals. There's no cookie-cutter approach here!
Got a big audition or performance coming up? Let's get your rep polished so you can confidently express yourself on stage, give a show-stopping performance, and WOW your audience!
Enhance the experience for your choir, drama club, or community group with one-of-a-kind workshops! Available in several formats, these workshops are the perfect way for your singers to engage with their voice and repertoire in a new way.
Whether the music was composed three centuries or three days ago; whether chamber, solo, or choral; I'll use every facet of my artistry to make it come to life!
Who Am I, Anyway?
I'm Ellen Allen, a conservatory-trained soprano, voice teacher, and coach. I believe singing - and all artistry, really - is where personal expression meets changing the world.
Over the years, I've watched my students land lead roles, place in competitions, and earn acceptance to top-level conservatories.
But more importantly, I've seen them become confident, awesome singers, armed with the vocal and artistic tools to express themselves both on stage and off.
And what do I seek out as an artist? Nearly any opportunity that fosters creative collaboration, innovative artistry, and excellent musicianship. From Bach to Brahms to Argento to fresh-off-the-press works composed by friends and colleagues - to me, it's all oriented toward the same goal, which is to reach people.
