Sian has a wonderful and patient manner with my girls and they look forward to their lessons each week. Sian has covered all aspects of the piano and seems to judge the learning pace of my girls extremely well. It is so lovely to see the progress that Sian has made with my daughters.

Dear Sir/Madam, I have been asked to provide a character reference for Sian Carys Allen. I have known and been voice coached by her for a for a number of years, she is very professional, reliable and encouraging when teaching, using her extensive knowledge of music to best advantage. Her coaching and motivational skills coupled with her organisation, reliability and enthusiasm is uplifting. I have watched her coach, add fun and get the very best out of her pupils who come from all walks of life and all ages. It has been a privilege to have been asked to provide this reference and though not relevant to this post I feel that as someone who has been present at a Flood Fund Raising event I witnessed her truly inspirational performance. I strongly recommend Sian as a ' no risk' asset to your school and to Cumbrian education.

Sian is an exceptional teacher with gift for encouragement and disciplined learning. As someone slightly terrified of the piano it is a relief to find someone so experienced, and, importantly, able to tailor lessons to me.

I have been having weekly singing lessons with Sian for approximately 3 months now. My music background is serious amateur, performing reasonably regularly. I play the Acoustic Guitar, primarily. I wanted to have singing lessons as I wasn't happy with my singing ability, which was affecting my confidence performing live. Simply put: I knew nothing about singing (other than being in tune), I just knew I wanted to be better at it. The style of music I perform is contemporary folk music. I searched local singing tuition and found Sian advertised. The selection of styles covered appealed to me, as well as her also teaching the piano and her credentials. I took a chance on those things alone and I am very pleased I did. Sian is wonderful to work with and I enjoy her lessons immensely, she is very welcoming and warm and any nerves were quickly clamed upon meeting her. My confidence has improved greatly since I have been receiving tuition and the improvement in my singing has been noticed by myself and various other people who heard me perform before and since. Sian has been incredibly generous with her time, care and knowledge. I had never considered the techniques required to sing well. Sian has been teaching me many techniques to improve the sound, clarity, projection and emotion conveyed in my voice, she gives constant feedback and is very patient as I have begun to learn these. So much singing technique is almost abstract compared to playing technique, it has been very interesting to treat the voice as an instrument and begin to learn the techniques to control it properly. As I mentioned, it has been a lot of fun, also. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Sian to anyone looking to improve their singing. She is vastly over qualified to tutor me, although, I would warrant even advanced students could learn a lot from her. I know she teaches a lot of children with great success, also.
