Myra Arrington, Mother of Private Voice and Show Choir Student
Dear Rita, thank you for the tremendous amount of help you gave Haley. I feel you have helped
Haley accomplish her goal of being able to stand in front of other whether it is at her church singing or speaking in her
class at school. Thanks for bringing a child that was too shy to stand up in her class and read a line, to a child
that could compete and entertain in front of an audience of more than 500 people at a State and International level. Sincerely, Myra
Tanya, Director, Big Oak Ranch,Springville, AL
Rita, Thank you so much for all you do with our girls. My heart just swells with
pride when I hear them sing. You have so much charisma; it is always a joy and a blessing to hear you perform. Thank
you again for the light you bring to Big Oak!

Music, in its many facets, lends us to a beauty that transforms into personalities of soothing
comfort, peace, joy, sometimes pain and discomfort. In our children's lives, music has been a ministry. A ministry
of hope, security, love and just having a great time cultivating their talents. Rita Allen has a unique way of teaching
music so that her students are eager to learn and appreciate this lovely form of art.
Tim and Sharon Kisor, Parents of Private Voice & Show Choir Student
We would like to thank Rita Allen for all the time, encouragement, guidance and confidence
she has given to Laura over the last few years. Laura started out with a dream of singing and performing. Rita
brought her out of her shell and she blossomed more and more each year. She is now confident in performing and
has the desire to go as far as she can go. Rita has instilled in her the dedication and hard work that it takes to become
the best she can be. Laura now has a direction and goal that she is out to achieve and we will always be thankful
to Rita Allen for her time, direction and excellence in guiding Laura down a path that will bring her a lifetime of enjoyment.
Anita Gardner, HouseMom at Big Oak Girl’s Ranch
Rita, you do bring sunshine to others! Even when you are down or not feeling well,
you never let it show. You are such an inspiration to me! You have become my mentor. Thank
you for being so patient with me.
