Challenging Me to Do Better

April 21, 2016

“When I first came to Laura in August 2010 I knew I wanted to sing but I didn’t think I could. Now, a year later, I have improved and achieved more than I could have imagined.

After just four months of singing with Laura I auditioned for WAAPA, although I was not offered a position, I did receive a call back which was more than I expected at the time. I’ve also begun work for the AMEB Grade 5 exam which I will perform this year. I went to New Yorkin 2011 to attend the Open Jar: Broadway Actor’s Intensive Summer Course, which I successfully auditioned for earlier this year. None of this would have been possible without Laura’s help.

Being a multi-talented musician and performer herself, Laura’s knowledge of language and music is invaluable. I look forward to every lesson with Laura because I can’t wait to see what areas need work or what I’ll be working on next. Laura’s passion and enthusiasm when she teaches is infectious and her technical coaching is that of a perfectionist. I can’t learn enough in one lesson!

Laura always challenges me to do better and I know when she hands me new sheet music, which looks more difficult than the last, that with a bit of determination and hard work, I can do it.

From the beginning, Laura has believed in me, and I can’t thank her enough for giving me my own confidence in my abilities and a love of singing that will be with me forever.
At last I got into WAAPA in 2012&2013 and now my fourth year of Bachelor of Music in 2017! I can honestly say I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher.”
