Laura Coale is a wonderful, kind, teacher that will help you with technique and correct singing practices! I have learned how to control my breath flow better as well as have correct posture and postition while singing. I will continue taking lessons with her.Aug 24, 2019Verified
Laura was an excellent teacher - very helpful in teaching me breathing technique and how to apply phonemic knowledge to singing. She taught me how to pronounce things better and how to project and sustain sound. She was very good about making me comfortable, while still testing my limits so that I grew as a singer. Her use of metaphor in instruction helped me to visualize my singing; her coaching helped me to better determine my goals. I would definitely recommend Laura to anyone looking for a supportive and knowledgeable voice teacher! I certainly would return to her for further instruction in the future!Jun 30, 2018Verified
I have enjoyed my lessons with Laura so very much! In just a few lessons so far I feel I have come so much farther in developing my voice than I ever did in years in choir. She is funny and friendly and very encouraging! I look forward to more!Apr 14, 2015Verified
Laura was nice, Knowledgeable and easy to work with.May 1, 2018Verified
Working with Laura was a great experience. I went to her with very limited time, very little experience, and a lot to learn. While my audition didn't go well as I may have hoped, I did know the material, even if I wasn't confident enough to deliver a polished performance. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Laura, and look forward to doing so again soon.Feb 23, 2015Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I teach 30, 45, and 60 minute lessons. A 30 minute lesson costs $35, a 45 minute lesson costs $50, and a 60 minute lesson costs $60. I offer a discount of 10% off the total price of a purchase of 4 lessons. For example, the total cost of 4 60 minute lessons, at the discounted price would be $216. I do request that these 4 lessons be used by the end of 6 weeks after purchase.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?At our first lesson I will ask the student what his/her goals are and why they want to take singing lessons. I will evaluate the students technical abilities in breath control, and tone production. Usually the first lesson consists of technique exercises, and in the following lessons we will apply these techniques to some songs.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I hold a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Houston. As part of my degree I took vocal pedagogy classes that taught the technical aspect of singing as well as how to teach.
