Once that is established a specific lesson plan is made to help students meet specific goals which includes any goals they may have for themselves. Lorna is certified to teach children from K-12 and have been teaching young people professionally since 2006. She is a lot of fun and endeavors to make lessons educational as well as fun for her students.

Lorna takes the time to get to know you and your voice. I feel very confident having such a devoted and talented teacher as my singing coach.
She is literally helping me to find my voice.

Professor Lorna has been the music teacher I’ve needed all my life!

I have been taking singing lessons with Professor Lorna for about 3 months now.

During this time period, she has not only helped me develop my voice but my singing confidence as well. Professor Lorna pushes me out of my comfort zone every class! She sees the potential in me and has helped me bring out that voice that I have been hiding. I need more practice but she define you knows what she’s doing! Even my family has noticed my singing growth with the technique Professor Lorna has taught me.

I am very happy that I found Professor Lorna. She is a woman filled with knowledge in all things of music and very talented! With much patience, practice, and continuing to take her lessons I know that she will continue to assist me in evolving my talent and helping me become that great singer I aspire to be.
I hope that I can grow under her wings and eventually master all that she’s taught me. Professor Lorna is what I’d call “The Master.”

I have truly enjoyed my experience with Mrs.Lawson. I find it easier to sing and have more confidence when singing. First we went over vocal techniques such as breathing and exercises. This served well for my college singing class. Then we applied all the techniques to a song. Every lesson is fun and I love having a true critique to better improve myself

I chose Lorna on TakeLessons because of her awesome reviews, and I was not disappointed. Lorna is the real deal! She's got an excellent understanding of voice and music theory and is so incredibly patient and always has answers to my questions (and I've got a LOT of them).

I just signed up for 5 lessons to try her out and I'm about to re-book another set because she is AMAZING and I feel like she'd developed me so much in just a few lessons already. Thanks Lorna!! You rock!

Ms. Lorna is an excellent teacher. My daughter, Michelle, has learned a lot in a short period of time. As a mother, I did not know the importance of using voice techniques such proper breathing, techniques used to avoid injury to your vocal area, etc. There is so much more we both have learned. Essentially, this has improved her singing ability. I believe she has the potential to succeed at singing with Ms. Lorna as her teacher. She has really improved. Additionally, Ms. Lorna encourages her. Michelle loves taking the singing classes and looks forward to attending each. Thank you!

Mrs. Lorna is a great coach. She is patient and really wants you to learn. I have no singing experience so I'm starting from 0 and she's really encouraging. I truly recommend anyone who wants to improve to choose her as her coach, I already see improvements in my singing voice when I wasn't even sure it was possible.

Ms Lorna is a great instructor and very professional. I intend to continue to develop my singing ability with her. There were times I thought I just couldn't do it, but she is so encouraging and also assured me I can do it. My confidence level has increased tremendously so has my ability to sing from my diaphragm, not my throat. I truly recommend this instructor.

skilled

I have been taking vocal classes with Mrs. Lawson off and on about 3 years or so. At first I thought being that I have a male voice type and her as a women that she wouldn't really be able to help me. She approved me wrong and exceeded my expectation of her. The thing i love most about Ms.Lawson is that she is very patient and she would make sure you understand the material. She is very knowledgeable and she never puts you down and she helps you gain that confidence within yourself. If you are looking for a vocal teacher I Highly recommend I am now doing things that I couldn't never done and now I'm doing it with ease and skillfully. I give her 2 thumbs up!!!!!!

Learning so much

My voice instructor is the best in all areas. She is developing me into a skilled singer. Lorna is teaching me how to use all of the techniques and exercises into my everyday singing ministry. For instance, before I stared taking lessons with Lorna I always had a problem while singing in the area of going from the low register to the high smoothly, and being able to sing on my palate. I am pleased with her abilities to teach and bring out the best in an individual.

Loving my Lessons with Ms. Lorna

Ms. Lorna is absolutely awesome. I've been taking vocal lessons with her for almost a year now and I've learned so many new skills and abilities. She is incredible, truly professional, and authentic with her singing and personality. Ms. Lorna is, without a doubt, a master of her craft.

Ms. Lorna is a wonderful teacher

We are thankful for the opportunity to have Ms. Lorna teach our kids the piano. We have a seven year old girl, who started with Ms. Lorna when she was five, and a four year old boy. Our kids love Ms. Lorna and so do we. She is great with our kids and the only person who can keep our four year old interested in something for more than 5 minutes. We have seen our kids learn and grow with Ms. Lorna.

One of the best teachers ever!

Ms. Lorna is a wonderful teacher. She's professional and a great teacher to my 6 year old. My daughter is always excited to attend her lessons, and now she brags to all of her peers.

Ms. Lorna is a very good teacher overall.

Ms. Lorna is a very good teacher. She is a nice, great, professional, and relatable teacher. She brings out skills in students who students themselves didn't know they had. Since I started taking lessons with her she has taught me a lot, she has brought out skills that i didn't know i could do with my voice, and it's very easy to learn with. I have learned and am still learning a lot from her.Thank you Ms. Lorna for being such a great teacher.

Love, Valerie :)
