What my students say...
"I have been singing for many years in a 'low-key' kind of way (solos at friends weddings and christenings etc). Now, at the age of nearly fifty a friend of mine asked me to perform a 40 minute set at a festival she is running (up to 200 people - only friends and family). Excited, but slightly nervous I thought I'd better have some vocal coaching for the first time. I found Laura online and chose her as I was impressed by her qualifications.
Laura's approach is great. She is gentle and encouraging; very good at giving feedback/ improvement suggestions in a motivating way, and her experience and knowledge is well beyond her years. She is clearly passionate about helping people improve in whichever way they want - and that passion has helped with my motivation too.
I have gained top tips on moving between head and chest voice, attacking head voice notes in a powerful way and bringing more expression into songs. Laura also helped me with the set-list order, and will be helping me with microphone technique as the festival draws nearer.
Laura's sessions are fun, engaging and highly effective. I recommend her to anyone wanting to improve."
Laura is passionate about singing but very empathetic to your needs, and is very happy for you to sing any style and pick your
own songs. Laura always has a welcoming smile which gives you confidence even when you are full of nerves!
I love my lessons and have learned a lot, feel so much more relaxed and always look forward to the next one."
"Laura has really helped me to perfect my grade 5, and make the music sound beautiful. She has a relaxed teaching style and is really friendly so you are relaxed in lessons, but still helps point out areas to improve. Also she gives really specific notes so coming away from her lessons and practicing you know what to do each day and how you can get better. I would definitely recommend Laura to teach because she makes you feel proud of your music."
"An amazingly helpful and friendly teacher! Learning Piano was something that I really struggled to grasp growing up, but Laura has the ability to work around difficulties and incorporate them into my practice enabling me to improve.
Laura's drive and passion for music helps to create a fun and inspiring environment to learn, and I cannot recommend her more!"
"Laura is a wonderfully enthusiastic and passionate teacher who is able to adapt lessons on the fly in order to best suit our son's questions and requirements. He loves going to his lessons and we see clearly the growth in confidence and joy of learning piano.
Would highly recommend her as a friendly and competent teacher."
