Testimonials from Students
"Working with Lara on my song was a real transformative experience! I was preparing for a studio recording and had three vocal sessions with her. Not only did she help me fully open up my voice but also created a space where singing became fun, joyful and explorative! I built up more confidence with her, and feel very grateful about it. She is professional, technical, fun and really focusses on your inner potentials, she made me feel at ease with deeper aspects of my voice. If you have the chance to get a singing session with Lara, go for it! You are going to discover more about yourself! She has made me pass a milestone in my development as a singer."
Bea Shantifa, Lead Vocalist/Percussionist for award winning Afro-Brazilian Collective "Let Drum Beat'
In my decades of coaching, I've never found a better vocal coach than Lara. She is thorough, energetic, technical and patient. She tailors each exercices to fit my needs and adapts any piece's style and key to fit the interpretation that suits me. She gives me confidence and helps me master both my high and low registers to give me the flexibility and technique I need to master any piece. She's a wonderful teacher and I couldn't recommend her enough.

Working with Lara has been a pleasure from the beginning. She has been nothing but professional, encouraging, and personable with me - she is evidently talented and knows how to bring the best out of her students and I've seen a massive improvement in myself (skills and confidence-wise) since meeting with her. She takes a vested interest in the development and personal well being of those she teaches and I'm pleased to say I've gained both and long term teacher and friend.

"Whatever it is that you struggle with, as a singer or musician Lara will be able to find the way to overcome your worries and fears. If you looking for someone with individual, professional, fun approach Lara is your person. She will listen, advise and guide you through your musical journey. She will go out of her way to help you achieve your goals and she will search for the method that works best for you, purely to show you what you are truly capable of. I don’t have to tell you how incredibly talented and professional she is (all you need to do is check her youtube channel to realise) All I am going to say is that Lara is one of the most inspiring and supportive people that I have ever met and without shadow of a doubt I hugely benefited from my lessons with her, so don’t even think about it, just book your first session."
