Laura holds a Bachelor of Music degree from Westminster Choir College and a Master of Music degree from the Catholic University of America. She has been playing piano since the age of 5 and often accompanies her voice students and choirs. Most recently Laura taught piano and voice at the International School of Music in Bethesda, MD and is excited to now be teaching out of her home studio in Denver.

About Laura D.

Hi, I’m Laura, and I want to tell you right now, you CAN sing and you SHOULD sing. From birth until death, the voice is our primary vehicle for expression. When you take a voice lesson, you are learning more than just good vocal technique (though that’s important). You’re learning about yourself and how to more confidently and effectively interact with the world. I’m happy to tell you all about my background and experience, but first, let's talk about YOU and how we can FIND YOUR VOICE.

In our work together we’ll open up a large toolbox, and maybe even invent some of our own tools together. At times we’ll speak directly about the science of singing. At other times we’ll use imagery, sounds, and movement to help make the action of vocalizing a lived and felt experience in your whole body. You might even find yourself in a yoga pose or two.

I have a masters degree in Voice Pedagogy and Performance from the Catholic University of America and a bachelors degree in sacred music (voice primary) from Westminster Choir College. I'm also an E-RYT 500 certified yoga teacher and love using yoga to show people how their body is their instrument. I've been teaching voice and piano privately for 13 years, directed church choirs throughout the country, and have performed throughout the world, from the stages of New York to Taiwan. But my first love has always been teaching, so most of the time you'll either find me in my home studio or teaching a yoga class in the Denver metro area.

If you have questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. I'd love to communicate with you about your musical aspirations!

I had no prior vocal or musical training of any kind--I can't read music--when I began voice lessons with Laura. All I had was a passion since childhood that I finally got the nerve up to pursue. The lessons were a wonderful experience from the very beginning. Voice may be the most challenging instrument to learn, because the teacher can't "play the instrument" to demonstrate technique. Laura has a remarkable talent for communicating vocal techniques and concepts with inventive and vivid visualizations that helped me understand the relationship between my body, my voice, and the sound I produce. I loved the music of Gabriel Faure, but never imagined I could sing it. Laura had all the confidence that I could, and we jumped right in. Faure's beautiful art songs, as well as others by Reynaldo Hahn and Ernest Chasson that Laura introduced me to, are now a part of me. I learned so much in the two years we worked together before Laura returned to her hometown of Denver, and miss her terribly!

I've learned so many valuable vocal lessons with Ms. Laura! She is super talented, smart, and such a great teacher. Ms. Laura takes time to explain musical concepts and techniques. Five stars!

My 13 year-old daughter had taken voice lessons from Ms. Laura in Maryland for two years. I have to say my daughter was so lucky to have Ms. Laura as her first voice teacher! When my daughter started to show interest in singing in 2016, she knew very little about singing. Ms. Laura was very knowledgeable, personal and supportive. Ms. Laura taught my daughter about vocal anatomy, how to improve her voice presentation and how to avoid possibility of voice loss, inflammation from overuse or misuse. After several months, my daughter made very impressive progress on her voice range and presentation. It was such a treat when I listened to my daughter practicing singing at home. She was getting better and better every day. I was so proud of my daughter. At the same time, I really appreciate Ms. Laura being such a wonderful teacher. Ms. Laura is very personal. She tried to know my daughter as a teacher and as a friend. Based on each student's personality and strength, Ms. Laura chose music that helps each student to grow, but also focus on what needs to be worked on. Ms. Laura was very flexible when we needed to reschedule lessons. We sure miss her!!

Taking voice lessons was at the top of my list of things I wanted to do when I retired. I had never had a voice lesson until then! Laura was a terrific coach. She was clear and precise in her teaching and I found all of the songs tremendously challenging. I was astounded at the progress I made in a little over a year.

Laura is a true professional and educator and a respected colleague. She has a thorough working knowledge of the voice and creative ways to teach anyone at any level and from various backgrounds. In lessons with her, you will find the tools you need to discover your authentic voice.
