I've been coaching Voice (Seth Riggs Method) for 10+ years and my students have gone on to score leading roles in theatre productions, as well as attain record label contracts. Within the first few lessons, you'll enhance range, breath support, control, pitch, and agility, and as time goes on you'll uncover the strong, healthy voice you were born with, connected from bottom to top! This vocal technique is key for singing Broadway!! Lessons are recorded, making practice 100% effective. I love working with clients of all ages, styles, and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Laura-Leigh is a brilliant singing teacher! She has been teaching my 9 year old in a very balanced lesson incorporating Breathing techniques, warm up techniques, posture, and singing some of her fav pop tunes. She is overall so positive with her feedback & enthusiasm and we are so glad we found her!! 💓

I have been one of Laura's students for many years and she is honestly the best teacher a student could have! She is very knowledgable about all aspects of piano, voice, and performing techniques and is very qualified to be a teacher. She is so down to earth and cares about all of her students. I was very shy growing up, but she helped my confidence grow and encouraged me every lesson we had. She even offered me performing opportunities to gain more experience and feel more comfortable on stage. She is beyond talented and is a great role model to all young musicians. I am beyond thankful to have worked with her for so many years and have nothing but good things to say about her!

Laura is the most incredible teacher that we could have ever wished for. My daughter took voice lessons from Laura from age 7 to age 13. She also took piano lessons for approximately three of the 6 years. Laura's coaching technique created growth in my daughter's skills and confidence that impressed everyone who knew her. Laura has a unique gift of connecting with her students, creating a comfortable environment and helping them build on their talent to accomplish their goals. She is the greatest!

Laura is an an awesome music instructor. Both of my children have taken lessons from Laura. She is passionate about music and she is able to communicate this passion while teaching. She is also very patient while teaching music to young children. She worked with my kids on their first duet together. To this day, my kids still talk about music lessons with Laura. We were so fortunate to have been instructed by her amazing talent!

Laura is amazing!! She taught both piano and voice to 2 of my children. She has the knowledge and she is able to teach/share her knowledge. She not only helped my kids learn, she also has the kindest heart towards people.
My kids absolutely adore her! They only want her as their instructor.

I took lessons from Laura when I was younger and I'm 18 now and she was so great! I wasn't too involved with singing, but her lessons brought up my confidence and I learned so much from her and I wish she was still available to me. She definitely knows what she's doing and is capable of teaching all ages to help them get better at what they love to do. I took lessons for singing, stage performance, and a little piano before she left for California. She's the best teacher I've ever had to this day, and is very nice, encouraging, supportive, and she smiles a lot, which is comforting. She's a brilliant singer, musician, and overall artist. 10/10 recommend. :-)

Laura and I bonded immediately back when she taught taught me voice lessons in middle school. She was always very attentive and helpful, and only wanted the best for me and my voice. From collaborating, to doing vocal warmups, to developing a great friendship, I can honestly say that I'm grateful to know someone so talented! I highly reccomended her.

Laura L. Music Lessons

For 10 years, I have been blessed with the opportunity of coaching private voice and piano lessons! A Vocal Music Education Major at the University of Oklahoma, I began coaching privately immediately after attaining my degree, and completing my student teaching in elementary and secondary levels. I absolutely LOVE is the most rewarding experience seeing a shy student completely come out of their shell upon realizing their gifts of singing and music, and hearing the strength, natural beauty, and passion in their true voice they were born with become uncovered through this amazing technique...(Seth Riggs Method). Their confidence soars, they find their purpose, gifts, and a beautiful way to communicate their heart and change the world. I love what I do, and cannot say enough how the technique has enhanced my own voice, passion and life...which is why I am thrilled EVERY DAY to share it with others and bless the hearts and lives of each student and everyone around them!
