Experienced voice teacher of over 20 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of technique including breathing and exercises designed to improve strength, power, and range while decreasing tension in the jaw, face, and throat. I specialize in teaching students to relax and to not sing from the throat and chest. For non-singers I can focus solely on ear training and pitch matching which is often necessary for auditions and performing on other instruments as well as voice.

About Laurelanne D.

I graduated from Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, GA with a BA in Music Education, voice principal. During my years in public schools I taught a variety of age ranges and subjects including kindergarten general music, beginning band, high school chorus, and remedial middle school English and language arts. I have professional Yoga training and enjoy incorporating aspects of that when tutoring adult, middle school, high school, and elementary students. I also use Yoga, brain respiration and other healing techniques in my lessons as needed.

I was a member of The William Baker Festival Singers and Summer Singers since 2003 before becoming Media Relation Coordinator in 2006 and Assistant to the Music Director in 2008 and left the group in July of 2009 to pursue other musical ventures.

Every student has a potential for greatness no matter what their strengths and weaknesses are. No matter your age or ability level I will help you set your goals and reach them. All students should want to learn. I expect my students to be prepared and have an open mind. Learning to sing is a process. I focus on building technique and a strong musical foundation and customize my lessons for every student and individual needs. I use breathing techniques and exercises that are challenging and work toward quick and accurate results. I implement a variety of exercises to improve pitch, intonation, placement, strength, and endurance. My main goal in teaching is to encourage each student to get to know their vocal strengths and weaknesses while using all their skills to their advantage producing their best sound consistently.

It is a slow building process but a student should always be happy with what they do every day but never be satisfied and know that what they do today will be ever better tomorrow. We all grow and learn together and improve every time we try. I expect my students to do the best they can, practice regularly, be on time and have patience. I am excited about music and know it is also important to have fun and enjoy the process. So let's make some goals and get started!

Laurelanne is one of the best vocalists, coaches and teachers I've ever met. Not only is she encouraging, personal and educational, she's challenging, engaging and patient. I have been taking lessons for a couple of months and I've already seen leaps in my extending of range and fixing my pitch. She knows exactly what she's doing as a teacher and coach and she'll bring your confidence out. I honestly can't say enough great things about her and her way of getting her students farther than they thought they could go. You're the best, Laurelanne and I plan on being one of your long time students!

My first lesson was already the best singing lesson I've ever had. Laurelanne is not only patient, encouraging and challenging, she's sweet, nurturing and fun. Her relaxed style is welcomed and her wide range of technique and expertise is appreciated. She motivates me to continue on my path to not just ding, but be a singer. I can't wait for the rest of the lessons and results.

Laurelanne is doing a fantastic job with my daughter's college audition prep! She is really helping her polish her vocal preparation and audition skills. My daughter is very happy with everything Laurelanne has helped her with so far. I have no doubt that she will be more than ready for her auditions. Very happy to have found such a highly qualified instructor in our area.

Helped me figure out how to pick out harmonies and control my breathing, but spent a lot of time talking about unrelated things.

Laurelanne is a fantastic teacher! She is great with all ages and has done so much to help make me a better musician and singer. She is concise and thorough with her explanations, not to mention great at identifying a singer's strengths and weaknesses. Overall, she is just a genuinely great person and is always encouraging. She is the perfect teacher for me, and I'm sure she would be for you too!

I have been taking lessons for a few months now and am very happy. It is like she has an x-ray machine right there and can see everything that is going on with my voice and she has the experience and expertise to make improvements. Every lesson I can feel improvement from the last. She is well worth the investment...and she's fun!!

Laurelanne made me feel so comfortable on my first singing lesson. No one ever feels comfortable singing for the first time in front of someone else and she did it! I was taught breathing techniques and I really hope to eventually sing at a festival in a year when I become really good. She's definitely the person to go to if you want to learn to sing!!

Amazing Teacher

I looked forward to having class with Laurelanne each week. The lessons were fun and informative. The classes not only improved my voice, but improved my breathing, posture and boosted my confidence, as well. Excellent teacher!

Taught me techniques to preserve my voice

I'm a rock singer and prone to scream sometimes. As I've gotten older, I've noticed my voice wears out a lot quicker than it used to. After taking lessons with Laurelanne, she found I never learned proper technique when singing in this style. She showed me how to make adjustments and I've seen a lot of improvement with how long I can sing in my style.
