Alyson began singing at an early age, touring France and soloing in Vivaldi's Gloria with her primary school choir. Having trained at the Birmingham Conservatoire and gained a degree from the University of Birmingham, Alyson has sung all over the world with a wide variety of choirs and performers. Her love of music has always been ecumenical, classical training interlinked with popular music of all kinds; roles and chorus in many musicals including Chicago, Cabaret and Jesus Christ Superstar; writing and performing her own songs in cafes around London; resident soloist at Minsky's Jazz piano bar in Sydney, Australia.

Moving back to London rekindled her love of the classical repertoire, and dedication to her musical vocation, singing in many churches and professional choirs throughout the capital. As her voice developed, she decided to make the move into the world of opera, and all her performances have been highly commended. She has been privileged to work with some of the UK's leading opera soloists, directors and conductors through Co-Opera Co, and more recently with tutors Mary Hill and John Ramster from Royal Acadamy Opera. Alyson is now enjoying frequent operatic performances, whilst continuing her busy solo schedule.

Having also studied with the Association of British Choral Directors, Alyson was previously Director of Music at Emmanuel Church, West Hampstead, and now conducts several children's and adult choirs in north-west London. In addition, she teaches singing, violin & piano to all ages. She also enjoys dancing and, though not professionally trained, is proficient in Ballroom, Jazz, Modern Jive and Argentinian Tango.
