I had an introductory voice lesson with Laura last week, and it left me more excited than ever to delve deeper into understanding my voice and body as an instrument. Even after one hour, I felt like I was given foundational building blocks to a maintaining a healthy voice and vocal practice that I will use always.
I am a performing musician, singing in two Austin bands, and I am a preschool teacher, so I use my voice a lot. Like, really really a lot. I sought out vocal lessons as a way to protect myself from injuring this expressive outlet I rely on, and to feel more comfortable and confident in my vocal performances. I understand a lot about my voice but I had never had lessons, and I could tell from the strain I was left with after shows or a busy week at work that I was at an impasse. Laura was recommended to me by a friend, and we set up our lesson the following week. My first vocal lesson ever!
Laura was so warm and supportive. I was nervous but she was very reassuring. I felt comfortable working with her and found that she communicated complicated or specific ideas in a way that was accessible and immediately applicable to posture, breathing, and vocalization. I left feeling thrilled that I had found her and really excited to have her as a guide to pushing the boundaries of my vocal expression. I am so happy we made that connection. I've been singing all week, practicing what she gave me, and cannot wait for my next lesson.
