Alison Segura Guitar Teacher, Piano Teacher, Vocal Instructor
Alison Segura is the main vocal instructor at School of Rock Lake Oswego. She is also a guitar teacher and piano teacher. Musically known as Nosila, Alison started making music with a classical singing degree in one hand and a guitar in the other. For many years she followed the folk singer/songwriter trajectory but didn’t truly find her voice until moving to the Portland area in 2017. Starting over in a new city meant she didn’t have access to her usual music collaborators. Rather than jump to fill the vacancies, she decided to try producing herself. As Alison began to learn how to produce, it quickly became clear that she was no longer making folk music. In 2018 she rebranded and began releasing music as Nosila, creating what she calls “sad girl electropop.” Nosila draws inspiration from artists like Maggie Rogers, Dirty Projectors, Billie Eilish, James Blake, Lorde and Sylvan Esso.
