Laura Altenor

Laura AltenorLaura Altenor has her degree in Music Education from the University of Massachusetts Lowell and is now enrolled in a Masters Program in Music Education. Her roots in singing began at the age of five primarily in the church choir. Laura began teaching church Sunday school at the age of 12. She taught chorus, dance, and acting at her local Boys and Girls Club in Everett. Laura sang in the Northeastern District Choir as well as the All State Choir of 2010 where she sang a solo at Symphony Hall in Boston. Laura was selected to be in the Sound of America Choir that tours Europe for a month singing in numerous cathedrals all around Europe where she sang opera and Italian arias. Laura has been in Off-Broadway musicals such as Chicago, Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Color Purple, Bare:The Pop Opera and is currently in a brand new musical called “This is Treatment” which is written by a Broadway director based in Boston, Massachusetts. In her private lessons, Laura teaches genres such as Classical, Musical Theatre, Rhythm & Blues, Jazz, Pop and Soul. She teaches the art of “belting" in a safe way for vocalists, breathe control, performance, and even acting. Laura wants her students to learn the art of singing but also to know how to perform on a stage and be able to show the characters on the stage through song.

Martha Robertson

Martha RobertsonGrowing up in Dorchester Massachusetts, I cultivated a love for movement, dance and music at a very young age. I quickly fell into step with a community theater and chorus program and it was there my zest for performing arts was confirmed. I grew as a musician, taking piano lessons, studying under two classically trained vocalists in the Boston area and joining various choruses. I am currently a senior Music Education major at UMass Lowell and enjoy participating in opera workshops and directing an all student led co-ed a cappella group on campus. I've grown from my classical background and have expanded into becoming more comfortable with musical theater, jazz, folk, global, contemporary/singer songwriter, and many more that I hope to learn! In addition to music, I pursue my passion for the yoga practice as a yoga teacher. My intention is to blend what I learn from body, breath, and mind awareness in with every voice lesson. After all, the body is all we have for an instrument as a vocalist!
