Lauren is inspirational!

I began studying with Lauren about five years ago. Her instruction in musical theatre, opera, and pop has been some of the best that I have ever received. In fact, thanks to her coaching, I was able to book a role in my first Equity musical, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, at the Pantages Theatre in LA. She has a passion for music, is an excellent accompanist, and knows how to work with developing singers. Her engaging, encouraging direction continues to inspire me to be the best vocalist I can be!

Lauren is an amazing teacher!

Lauren is an incredible teacher! I came to her without much experience in vocal technique, and she has helped me improve so much. She has taught me many useful techniques to stay on pitch even when the notes are really high, to have good breath support, and to project my voice more.

Lauren is a very supportive teacher. She likes to establish friendships with her students, and she truly cares about what's going on in their lives.

I've taken lessons with Lauren for a little over 3 years now because I've had such a great experience with her. I'd recommend her to anybody! She has helped me get into my school's advanced choir, prepare solo songs, and just practice my singing technique in general.

Also, scheduling voice lessons with Lauren is very convenient. We never have problems finding a common time. I love the studio where she teaches too! It's really cool. I have nothing but positive feedback about my time with her, and I plan to continue lessons with her!

About Teri

I teach students of all ages in a relaxed, encouraging, and fun way- but with the structure many beginners need to reach their goals and with the background of a professional singer!

Teri is a premier vocal coach. When I first came to her, I didn't know what I was doing; I knew I had some talent, but didn't know how to hone it. Teri was just the person I needed. A vocalist herself from the school of hard knocks, Teri's real life artist experiences give her unique insights into what makes a vocalist tick and how to discover and nurture one's artistry. She has an excellent ear and is a phenomenal teacher. Teri has an upbeat style; always positive and encouraging, but also honest and straightforward. Teri tells it like it is out of love for the art form and her students. She's a vocal coach extraordinaire, and I highly recommend her.

When I first started lessons with Teri, I could barely be heard and had absolutely no technical skill, or even really the confidence to sing. I now am able to use the techniques Teri has taught me and have completely completely made over my sound as well as my confidence! I absolutely would recommend Teri as a voice teacher; she has taught me so much and always with stellar enthusiasm and expertise. I look forward to continuing lessons with her in the future!

Dalila is a fantastic teacher. I've learned so much from her in the short time that I have been taking lessons that I would highly recommend her. Since I took lessons for about six months, person to person, with another teacher I find absolutely nothing lacking with learning to play the violin online. I wish I would have started with Dalila from the very beginning.

The small space and smooth hard walls give you a volume boost plus a healthy dose of reverb. What singer doesn't love that? 14. That awkward moment when you are the only person singing along. What? I love this song! Some people might not get it, but for singers, grooving along to that certain, special song
