*** Lesson Details ***
Lorna teaches all ages and genders, and likes to make music fun and interesting. Yet it is very important to her that her students learn, grow, and understand their instrument so they can use it effectively. In the initial stage of lessons students are assessed to find their strengths and weaknesses. From that assessment Lorna creates an individualized plan for her students to help them reach specific goals. Music is one of Lorna's greatest passions and she enjoys passing on everything she knows to her students.

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!!!!!!

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.

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.

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.
