I am Laurel and I would love to help you develop your voice! I have over 30 years of experience as a private voice teacher. My students range from beginners to advanced, and they range currently from ages 3 to 73! I have a very positive approach to teaching. I look for the good things that you do, and I am quick to tell you the positive things I see and hear. I am clear in our goals and techniques, so that you know what we are striving for, and I applaud you for every incremental step of progress you make toward those goals. I have an excellent ear with a remarkable ability to hear exactly what is going on in your voice. I am able to quickly prescribe just the right exercises to guide you in experiencing fabulous results, enabling you to sing freely from low to high, in any style you prefer, whether classical, musical theater, or pop. I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the U of U in Music, Vocal Performance. From my classical background, I bring techniques in freeing the voice, so that there is no straining. The foundation is good breath management and support. From my pop and theater background, I also teach the "Mix," enabling you to go from low to high in a smooth, easy manner, with strength and a beautiful tone, and to sound natural and appropriate for that style of singing. I have effective exercises in helping you to develop vibrato, making you sound professional, and to more effectively convey emotion. I have skills in helping you to bring out the emotion of the song. I have considerable experience performing on stage. Having been a soloist with the Utah Symphony, I have also performed as the lead in many musicals. I am a very positive, upbeat person. My students love me and I love them! I have many who have been with me for years. I hold a Spring Recital and a Christmas Recital each year. I charge $30 per 1/2 hour lesson.
