I VALUE

PLAY

I believe in the power of "what if...", being open to trying new things, and having fun while doing it. I believe that singing is about more than just “hitting the high note” - it should be fun & fulfilling. I encourage my students to embrace imperfection, take messy action with self-compassion, and welcome curiosity over self-criticism.

I VALUE

KINDNESS

I'm more than just your voice teacher. I'm your coach, cheering section, & support system all in one! Cultivating an environment where you feel safe to create through a collaborative and encouraging approach is of utmost importance to me. My goal is for you to leave your lesson feeling intuitively free, boisterously confident, and excited for your next lesson.

I VALUE

COMMUNITY

I believe in a student-first approach and seek to serve creatives of all ethnicities, races, sexes, gender identities and expressions, ages, religions, abilities, sexual orientations, and beliefs. I draw on a diverse background of training to be able to meet my students exactly where they are.

Student Love

I can’t say enough good about Lauren Urso and “Your Authentic Voice”! In only three lessons with Lauren, I have already noticed an improvement in my vocal range/health/consistency, and have begun to develop a healthier relationship with my voice. Lauren provides an unparalleled holistic approach to voice lessons, and is successful in helping her students heal their relationship with their voice and get out of their “mental ruts” in the practice room.
