Vocal Performance Coach
After studying music under a concert pianist in high school and voice at California Baptist University, Alison Stevens began leading worship at churches, retreats and conventions over the next 25 years, including at the Tennessee Baptist WMU Annual Convention, Spirit West Coast with Bob Kilpatrick and Sun Grove Community Church in California (where she served as the primary worship leader and vocal director. She began teaching 20 years ago with a small group of students out of her home in Sacramento, CA.
Alison began playing piano at the age of 7 and immediately fell in love. She attributes her love for music to three people in her life – “my mom, for making me stick with it,” says Alison; “my first piano instructor, Virginia Ostrom, who had a passion for making sure her students were highly skilled and knowlegeable; and Perla Warren, my college choral instructor who had an amazing gift of bringing music to life – communicating music and not just performing it. Their influences, direction and mentoring shape everything I do musically.”
She currently resides in Nashville, TN, with her husband, Rich. They have three kids - two married and a 3rd grader - and one grand baby.
“Worship is a way of life for me, not just something you ‘do’,” says Alison. “Every moment of every day is meant to reflect the glory of our Creator; this story we are in is not our own. Being ever-mindful of that is my prayer each day.”
