Sian Carys Allen (singing)

  • solo soprano performer from Cumbria
  • studied at the RCM where she won the French prize for singing
  • Dip RCM (teachers) for singing and piano
  • won a bursary from the Oppenheim John Downes Memorial Awards for a further year’s study with Audrey Langford followed by coaching from Martyn Hill
  • has studied with Glenys Linos and Stephen Wilder (formally a coach at the ROH)
At Higham we believe we should try and bring significant opportunities for true professional tuition for this part of the country. Small groups allow individual Students to work closely with Sian in a conducive and intimate environment, with spaces (and pianos) available for private practise, if required.
We offer three levels of SINGING SOLO: FROM SCRATCH (2 days), NEXT STEPS and a MASTERCLASS (both 3 days), so you can choose which suits you best.

“I thoroughly enjoyed this course and felt that the techniques explored helped me to make some improvements.”
“Ms Allen was very personable and engaging and open to suggestions.”
“Thank you. I now have ideas of how to improve my singing using the right bits of my body – including my lips! I knew a little, having sung years ago, but have learnt so much more. Sian is a patient and knowledgeable tutor and the chance for one to one attention has been brilliant, as well as sharing experiences with others. Small group works well as we all got individual help. Recommended.”
“What a wonderful course! Sian was so helpful and I now feel more confident. Thank you Sian!”
“A delightful couple of days – I am leaving refreshed and re-enthused with my singing.”
“Please book Sian again.”
