K.Lina: Vocalist - Artist - Private Student

Aly is a great teacher and a very kind hearted person. She helped me discover a new side of my voice. She showed me some really creative exercises and chose practice songs that challenged me but also suited my tone.


Moreover, Aly helped with my stage presence by explaining how to build the performance in a song depending on its mood and by giving me insightful feedback on my previous performances.


I would recommend Aly to anyone who wants to improve their technique, be challenged and grow their confidence.


Amie Brown: Artist - Private Student

Aly is by far one of the most skilled and inspirational coaches I have worked with. Her extensive knowledge of the voice and vast performance experience make her sessions incredibly informative and highly valuable. Not to mention the positive, warm and professional approach she has to her teaching style that makes her stand out from the rest. 


Anna Foye: Artist - Private Student

I have worked closely with Aly Duff through both formal education and private tuition and in every circumstance, I have been treated with respect and as an equal. She takes the time to get to know you, your voice and your goals, tailoring her skills to provide you with unique methods and processes to enable you to not only understand your own abilities but to develop them in and out of lessons. Her unreserved support and joyous enthusiasm sets her apart from so many other coaches and I would recommend her to anyone.


Alice Geary: Artist - Private Student

Aly has a very passionate and enthusiastic approach to teaching which always makes her lessons engaging and enjoyable. She is knowledgeable of not only vocal techniques and stage etiquette but the music industry itself, so it’s great to get first hand advice!’


George Alfie: Singer/Songwriter - Artist

Aly is someone I always feel comfortable talking to, she advises me even to this day, as a working artist and musician.


As a student she made learning intuitive, and was very warm and welcoming, you never felt you had a stupid question because she would answer and help in any way she could... a human I have nothing but respect for.

Pete Friesen

The Almighty, Alice Cooper
