Founder of The Singing Hearts Club, Laura is passionate about the healing, educational and transformative power of music. She draws from her experience as a teacher, singer, songwriter, and kinesiologist to write educational and inspirational children songs and support educators. Laura’s experience with traditional African music in townships schools inspired her to marry her ideas around music and songwriting with her interest in child development to create and facilitate youth empowerment projects.
The power of Music made visible.
The key ingredients to self discovery and empowerment live within us. The willingness to dive in and take a journey with music leads to forms of self expression that can open doors to many possibilities.
30 teenagers and Laura spend a year together on such a journey. Laura talks about the experience and her desire to expand and implement the "Pick up the mike project " in schools, organizations and businesses.
