Here are some Testimonials from educators and students that I have worked with:
Alicia is an excellent teacher, very kind with the little ones, and great with the teenagers. I heartily recommend her. She has good depth in opera repertoire, and in art songs and lieder. A lovely person too.
-Wilma Bell Wessel, Head of the Voice Department, Conservatory of Performing Arts, U of R, Regina
Alicia is an amazing vocalist who shares her talent through teaching. She customizes lessons to meet the students’ personal goals and interests. Friendly, approachable, and incredibly talented, she makes singing fun! What a privilege to be taught by Alicia.

Exploring vocal repertoire with students is one of life’s greatest joys! Since graduating from the University of British Columbia, I have had the wonderful opportunity to teach in White Rock, BC as well as at the Conservatory of Performing Arts, University of Regina. I will begin my sixth year of teaching private voice lessons at my voice studio in Airdrie, AB this year. Besides having experience as a private voice teacher, I have had the opportunity to adjudicate local voice competitions at the Long and McQuade Music Education Centre in Regina. I have also been the Vocal adjudicator for Voice and Musical Theater classes for the Saskatchewan Music Festival Association in Maple Creek and in Swift Current.
I have taught people of all ages and levels, from beginner to advanced students. I enjoy aiding vocalists in preparation for upcoming performances, music ministry, RCM examinations, local music festivals and master classes. I have taught many different genres of vocal music including classical music, musical theatre, Christian rock, popular music, and standard jazz. I specialize in teaching classical, age appropriate art song, folk song, musical theater and opera. As a classically trained singer, I teach technique which helps in the improvement of breath support, alignment for superior vocal production, tone quality, lyric diction, interpretation, and much more.
My goal as a teacher is to provide an encouraging atmosphere of learning and a solid vocal foundation of technique which will aid in producing beautiful singing and moving performances. I have also received acting coaching throughout my training as an opera singer. I like to encourage my students to engage in dramatic presentation as well! My students have a lot of fun and get to explore a lot of fabulous music.
