"When I started working with Laurece my songwriting was far more developed than my voice. I had good songs but no confidence in singing them for an audience. After two short months I had a better understanding and command of my range, the ability to produce the vocal tone I wanted, and even several performance techniques that helped me feel more comfortable on stage.
As a teacher, Laurece is both totally professional and is one of the warmest, nicest and most approachable people I've ever worked with. This unique ability to give constructive, thoughtful and efficient direction while keeping her students artistically open and relaxed is the main reason why I would recommend her over other instructors.
After working with Laurece I have moved to Asheville to pursue music full time. My voice continues to improve from the lessons I took and now the most frequent comment I get after shows is how much people like my singing. This is due largely to Laurece's guidance and for that I'm forever grateful -- A+, I would totally recommend Laurece West!"
