“Singing is a treasured art that involves simultaneously controlling and letting go. It is one of the deepest forms of human expression and a type of meditation. It is magic. Let me teach you how to use your unique instrument and be forever changed gaining access to this magical sixth sense we all possess within.” – Laura Caitlin Jensen.
