"I believe there are three fundamental pillars that a teacher of the arts must practice: authenticity, humility and passion. These are essential for a strong student-teacher relationship and fundamental to the growth of any student. My mentors who displayed all three shaped who I am as an individual and as an artist. It is this kind of educator I strive to be."

Alana unlocked a freedom in my voice that I had never known before.
Alana taught me how to define for myself the progress I was making.
