Director of LAVS, Lauren, founded the studio with the intention of bringing pop and contemporary vocal technique to music instruction in Venice and surrounding west LA. If you long to learn how to sing with a band, sing to tracks, write the best melodies for you voice- then the teachers at LAVS can help you.
