"I began working with Laurece last year and my whole perspective has been changed! Laurece is a gentle, strong soul who has helped me not only with my voice but also with myself as a whole. Her positivity is contagious. Each time I leave her studio, I feel more relaxed and at ease. I have also seen tremendous growth with my voice and learned countless new tactics to help in my performance. She certainly has a unique approach to singing and I'd recommend her to anyone who feels stuck in a rut with their voice or unsatisfied with their performance level. Laurece has a special way of bringing the best out of you and making you feel confident about the voice with which you have been gifted. She is extremely professional, timely, organized, and dependable. It has been an absolute joy working with her. Thank you Laurece!!"

"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!"

"Thank you Laurece. Just minutes ago I used my newly purchased blackberry to record my singing one of my favorites. I can't believe how I sound. I shudder to think about what I'll sing like by the end of the year. And this is even with the respiratory challenges of late. I am so thankful to have come into contact with you. And I wanna affirm how great a teacher you are."
