Hello! I am a nurturing voice coach with many years experience working with all styles of music. I am currently on the faculty of a contemporary music college teaching songwriting and pop/rock vocal technique. I have worked with artists on Columbia Records, the Voice, American Idol, Jimmy Kimmel. My students have been accepted at LACHSA, UC Irvine and Belmont College of Music. I received a Bachelor's of Music in Vocal Performance at NYU at the Steinhardt School. I went on to receive a Master's in Vocal Arts at the Thornton School of Music at University of Southern California where I also taught private and group voice. I also have a certificate in audio engineering from the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA with Protools 12 user certification. I am able to teach worldwide via skype/facetime.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether it is a professional gig or a high school musical, I cater my lessons to your needs. At a standard lesson, I start by warming up my students. We then work on songs either with me accompanying on piano or working along with tracks. In many cases, we focus on preparing for auditions whether it is for performing live, a college audition, a junior competition or even television. I also mentor my students and help them to find auditions and work. In songwriting, I try to assist in structure, lyrics and tracks. I play piano as well and can work on performance with an accompanist or help you to familiarize with the music.I love teaching and am very passionate about my students and work hard to provide encouragement and fun! I am also able to teach basic recording technique in Protools, Ableton and have recording knowledge in Logic Pro X.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboards, music stand, computer, speakers that have adaptor for phones or computers. Logic, Pro-tools (certified), Ableton X.

*** Travel Equipment ***

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!
