He knows exactly what he is doing. He has shown me techniques my past 2 instructors failed to even attempt to show me. I'm not where I want to be but with him I am confident I'm on my way. Whether you're a beginner or advanced there's always room for improvement and Desmond will find it within that session. He is willing to work with you schedule and need I mention very affordable. You won't regret his classes!

Good product with excellent skills.

I've had the opportunity to work with Desmond upon forming his Vocal Ensemble choir, that had a Classical based foundation. As one of the Ensembles’ founding member I sang with the alto line, and found great joy and fulfillment in attending rehearsals.
Within six months of our choirs’ conception we had an enormous repertoire, and was touring, appearing on television, attending interviews with the media, performing in and winning competitions. Needless to say Desmond’s musical skills was a ray of sunlight, which came our way boosting our self confidence, while creating success for the group. I’m happy to have been a part of this group and am pleased to recommend Desmond to anyone who is serious and wants to learn music.

A nurturing teacher

I have worked with Desmond previously (as an accompanist for one of his choirs). Desmond is a very gentle, kind spirit and I believe he would be a very nurturing teacher for a voice student. He also has the advantage of having a very broad background in different styles of music, from reggae to jazz/pop to classical.
Lana C. Brooklyn, NY

I grew up in a household of classical musicians.
Father is a conductor, mother is opera singer and older brother also an opera singer. My living room was basically the opera house and my parents, my brother and myself performed there every day.
Later on I studied classical voice, first with my mother, then at Prayner Conservatory in Vienna, for three years and then with private instructors ever since.
I still visit my classical teacher here in New York, every now and then, to check my technique.
I teach classical bel canto technique and repertoire.

About Lana

Featured and described in the "Rolling Stone Magazine" as a musician that makes: "...music free of regimentation and fixed format; very exciting."

I've been performing for 29 years and teaching for over 10 years and my students have gone on to develop a deep love and understanding of the instrument and its capacity.

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play simple songs and as time goes on you'll be able to integrate technique and your creativity in your playing and singing.

The lessons are designed to meet your musical interests and goals.

I specialize in classical, jazz and pop/rock have the following tools available at my home studio for your lessons:

I have a wonderful Korg SV1 Vintage Piano, I have mics, cables, a ...

I have been taking lessons with Lana for more than a year and it has been a wonderful experience. Lana is a highly skilled, passionate and student oriented teacher. Her lessons are always fun and thoughtful. She combines different aspects of singing such as technique, body perception, relaxation training and musicality. My voice has improved significantly and I appreciate Lana's holistic approach. I can highly recommend her as a teacher and I'm sure you'll have a wonderful experience with her!

Lana is an all around amazing teacher, performer, and musician.

I have been working with her privately over the past year and my entire understanding of the voice and signing has been fundamentally improved beyond what I thought was possible.

I work playing jazz saxophone and flute and wanted to start singing to further develop my ear.

In our lessons, Lana fuses both western classical and jazz singing technique with Indian classical vocal tradition seamlessly into a neat package even while we work on simple pop melodies.

Her teaching style and skill set is truly a unique gift and certainly rare among voice teachers.

Lana maintains a brisk yet mindful pace and I am fully engaged throughout the entirety of each lesson.

Lana also has an incredible sense of rhythm, is a Tabla player and has studied with Master Samir Chatterjee. Her sense of pitch is also unrivaled by most professional musicians and she can memorize and clearly project the most complicated of atonal jazz phrases. Furthermore, Lana plays the piano with great skill and grace both to accompany me during lessons and to accompany herself during performances.

I highly recommend studying with Lana for anyone interested in beginning or advanced study of the voice.

Lana is a thoughtful and comprehensive teacher who cares about her students. She is very experienced as a singer and performer and helped me with both my vocal technique and performance presence. She brings an embodied, holistic approach to singing and is a refreshing perspective to the teacher-student relationship.

I am confident in my ability to teach beginners through advanced singers as I have actively taught private voice lessons for over 30 years.

About Laurie

I bring 30 years performing and coaching experience to my students. I have performed as featured soloist at events ranging from Miss Texas Pageant and cruise ships to guest artist with several symphony orchestras. I have enjoyed singing with the Fort worth and Dallas operas as well as traveling with national Broadway touring shows.. I obtained my Bachelor of Music Degree from the University of North Texas and have studied with former Metropolitan Opera stars and Maestro for the Dallas Opera.

Each student is different, therefore I adjust my teaching technique accordingly. I want all of my students to be successful, so we begin where this can happen and then work up from there. I am classically trained and believe that a classical basis should be the foundation for all ...

I had taken voice lessons from Laurie for seven years before I moved away for college. During that time, my vocal ability grew in ways I could not have imagined.

Laurie has an amazing ability in helping you reach your greatest potential. She is intuitive, perceptive, and meticulous in discovering your weaknesses and helping you overcome them. Like an athletic trainer, she has an intricate knowledge of the muscles required for your performance, and she is excellent in helping you strengthen them.

Being a performer herself, Laurie is constantly evolving and honing her craft, which in turn is very beneficial for her students. Throughout my time with Laurie, she was always excited to share a new technique if she found it successful.

However, Laurie is not only an amazing teacher, she is also a wonderful person to be around. I always loved coming to her lessons, not only because I learned so much, but also because she became a great friend.

Classical Voice · In studio
Hi I am Evana Flores. I am Soprano 2, soon to be 18, and a senior at Coppell Highschool where I am in the A Cappella Choir and a few show choirs. Laurie and I have known each other for many years now. I started taking group class lessons with her when I was in the fourth grade for musical theatre, and then soon after began taking solo lessons for fun. She was super friendly and she is great with children and taught me good songs for auditions, how to breathe with my diaphragm, and most importantly confidence. I was in a Musical Theatre company and she was one of the directors where she was able to adapt and teach a bunch of voices from kids of varying ages. Going into middle school I signed up for school choir in 7th grade and they allowed us to take Voice at school, so I only saw Laurie sporadically. It wasn't until the summer before my junior year of high school that I sought out Laurie’s help once again. I was kind of in the rut vocally and with my confidence level because I was good, but I wasn’t improving… specifically with the All State Competition. I was doing well for my age, but I wasn’t advancing as far as I had wanted to and it was frustrating. Transitioning from a 30-minute weekly school lesson to Mrs. Lauries 1 hour+ lessons was kind of overwhelming at first because these lessons were so concentrated on technique. But by the end of that summer I had already learned how to project my sound and raise my soft pallet.
If that is not convincing enough, let me tell you how I did in my standings in the All State Process before and after her lessons. My freshman year I made the district choir (17th chair) and did not advance to the Region choir at the next round because I got 31st chair; I had to make top ten. The next year as a sophomore I made 11th chair at district and made 15th chair at the next round of Regionals so I was cut once again. That summer I went to Mrs. Laurie, and after having lessons for only a few months with her I was a million times better and I think my results from my junior year are quite telling. I made 6th chair at District, 3rd chair of the Region Choir, 6th chair at Pre-Are, and was 2nd Alternate to the All State Choir. I didn’t actually get to sing with the choir, or neither can I technically call myself an “All Stater” but now I know that I have the potential to be one if I work even harder this year, and Laurie saw that potential in me from the beginning, My junior year Laurie helped me make audition tapes for SWACDA and I made their Honor Choir. I also received a 1st Division rating on my solo at State Solo & Ensemble, where I had gotten a 2nd division rating the year before. But Laurie’s knowledge surpasses classical singing and she also helped me tremendously with show choir auditions and what not. In my show choir, Vivace, I auditioned for solos and a filler singing “Heart of Life” and was given the featured solo in Jai Ho and my John Mayer filler was put in the show.
But beyond my accomplishments, Mrs. Laurie has been a very special influence in my life. She cares for her students as their own mother would and her encouraging personality never made lessons intimidating. In my lessons I have learned how to raise my soft pallet, proper breath control, how to lift my check bones, relax my tongue, use my lips, stand, drop my jaw, and be free in my singing (which was very hard to do with choral training). But most pertinent to my voice, she found my voice as a soloist and not as a choir member. She uncovered so much of my range as a soprano and helped me feel at ease singing there. Mrs. Laurie is a wonderful person and teacher whose expertise is rare to come about these days. She always has the best in mind for her students and her passion for teaching and voice and performing are so evident. To her potential students, take from her! I highly recommend it.

Thanks for everything Mrs. Laurie. Love, Evana

To Whom it May Concern:
It is with the utmost pleasure that I recommend Laurie as a private vocal instructor. Having known Mrs. Laurie G. since 2006, at which point I was only 12 years old, I can honestly say that she is one of the few people who had such an impact on my life as to shape it musically and otherwise. When we first met, she recognized a vocal talent that I had not yet realized and she encouraged me to pursue it. Thus, I joined the middle school choir (which was, at that point, under her instruction) and became one of her private students.
In the nearly 4 years that I took voice lessons from Mrs. Laurie G., I received a solid classical training experience that prepared me for a multitude of accomplishments. While under her instruction, I earned the Lewisville Independent School District Outstanding Soloist Award three years in a row, performed soloist roles in the musicals Once Upon a Mattress, Annie, and Aladdin, sang at a few private gigs, and gained admission to the vocal department at the esteemed Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in downtown Dallas. After starting high school there, I went on to become a member of the 2011 All-State Choir, represent Booker T. Washington HSPVA at two SWACDA conventions, and perform in and direct Abbondanza, the school’s annual musical production. Additionally, I became a member of the Booker T. Washington HSPVA Opera Workshop, performing as one of the Three Ladies in a production of Die Zauberfl�te and in the role of Adele in Die Fledermaus, as well as gaining behind-the-scenes access to numerous events at the Dallas Opera. Lastly, I became a member of the Booker T. Washington Jazz Singers, a contemporary jazz group, which won the 2013 Monterey Jazz Competition and became one of two high school groups in the nation to be featured at the 2013 Monterey Jazz Festival.
Laurie gave me the foundation I needed to succeed in classical and contemporary vocal environments and helped me build the personal confidence I needed to put myself out there and strive for success. She always goes above and beyond the call of duty, endeavoring to assist her students in their pursuits in any way that she can. She is an individual that I will always hold near and dear and I know that, if given the chance, she will be the same for you.
Sincerely yours,

Alexa Weiand

About Margaret

“The title role of Hrabina was performed by Malgorzata .., displaying the full scale of her unusual voice.” Kurier Plus, 24.04.2010. New York
"Malgorzata ... who sang Rosina, handled the demands of Rossini's tricky lines with aplomb." New York Daily News, 03.10.08.
“The big treat of the evening was Polish soprano Malgorzata ... performing Janis' original composition "The Warmth of Christmas" with the Maestro himself accompanying her! Thunderous applause followed the very last note of the Christmas classic.”

I have been studying with Margaret for the past eight months and since then I was very successful singing at my girlfriend's wedding (Ave Maria) and also at the anniversary of my parents. It was a big surprise since I am a professional accounting manager.
I always loved singing and Margaret helped me to truly enjoy it with confidence. My voice got bigger and stronger. I would strongly recommend Margaret as a voice teacher to students on any level of advancement.

Kevin M. New York, NY

All styles of singing are founded on the basic principles of healthy technique: airflow and resonance.

About Kevin

I received my Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Kansas, and my Master's of Music and Advanced Certificate in Vocal Pedagogy from New York University.

It was during the rigorous Advanced Certificate program that I received the majority of my training as a voice teacher. The program accepts 15 students per year from a pool of international applicants and covers acoustics, anatomy, voice disorders, formants, vocal repertoire, and practical lab applications.

The pitfall that many teachers encounter is that they only can teach other singers "what has worked for them." Instead I have been trained to teach according to your specific needs. I am able to teach singers of all levels from the very beginning to very advanced.
