Biography and Professional Achievements

Laura Saunders has been a private voice teacher for over 20 years. She conducts choirs in school and church settings and is passionate about inspiring others with her contagious love of music.

In addition to being a music educator, she is a solo singer. She is a sought-after soloist in churches and for ladies ministries. As a trained vocalist, she has had many opportunities to sing classically. Such opportunities include performing the soprano solos for Handel's Messiah, Rutter's Gloria, and William's Dona Nobis Pacem. Saunders auditioned for, and was selected by, renowned composer Mark Hayes to sing the soprano solos for his Gloria under his direction.

Saunders firmly believes that all should be afforded the opportunity to participate in music programs.
