“I would recommend Lau Lapides with great enthusiasm for any performing arts work, whether as an acting teacher, coach, performer or career advisor. She did an amazing job with voice, speech, and acting training for my adolescent daughter, who acts professionally. Lau is delightful to work with. She’s talented, engaging, and really knows the worlds of the performing arts and the skills involved in building a career in that world. She develops a great rapport with everyone which inspires her students, colleagues and everyone with whom she works.”
