SINGING TEACHER/VOCAL COACH
Originally from Lancashire in the UK, Laura has been living in Hong Kong since 2016.
Having performed throughout her childhood in musicals, orchestras and solo recitals, she went on to study Theatre and Performance Studies at the University of Warwick. It was here that she discovered her passion for all things 'voice', when asked to be the voice coach for a production with Music Theatre Warwick. After this, she was the go-to voice coach for a number of performance societies at University, and had a chance to delve into this exciting new chapter.
During the three years after graduation, Laura explored the avenues available to her in the teaching and performance world, dipping her toes into work in schools, charities, music therapy, and private teaching. She found that she had a thirst for knowledge, and after attending a memorable workshop with Lin Marsh, she was advised to apply for the most prestigious Voice Studies course in the world.
Now a graduate of the MFA Voice Studies course at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Laura coaches both the sung and spoken voice, always with an overall emphasis on achieving the best possible vocal results safely and efficiently. Her experience ranges from work with actors to corporate clients, from children to adults, and from those with little previous training to those at the top of their game. She enjoys the challenge of adapting her work to suit the needs of the individual at that time.
Throughout Laura's years of practice, she has worked with: drama schools such as Arts Educational Schools London, City Academy, Italia Conti, the Oxford School of Drama, Performance Preparation Academy, and RCSSD; theatre companies Whole Hog Theatre, Folio Theatre and Byteback; and charities Urban Sprawl, Action for ASD and Adult Connect.
After a marvellous year teaching on the Musical Theatre BA at Arts Ed, London, Laura worked with CentreStage Studios HK as their Senior Spoken Voice and Singing Teacher, and is now working as a freelancer in Hong Kong. She is very excited to be working alongside Nicholas as the Head of Voice and Director of Neon Lights Ltd.
