Samantha Laurilla

Professional Singer and Vocal Coach

Equipped with a wealth of experience and boundless enthusiasm, Samantha is a qualified practitioner with The Voice College (previously known as VIDLA) offering dynamic and effective singing tuition, across Hampshire and Dorset.

After being awarded the esteemed John Owen Jones scholarship, Samantha studied with Vocalist International Distance Learning Academy (VIDLA) and achieved a High Distinction in her Diploma in Contemporary Vocal Teaching.

"Samantha was the recipient of the inaugural John Owen Jones Award via VIDLA, and quickly demonstrated that she was absolutely the right choice for the scholarship. As her Personal Tutor I was able to see first hand the passion that this young teacher has for her work, together with an aptitude for technical information and the all-important communication skills, which are so crucial in a teacher. Samantha is already a very fine vocal coach, and is surely destined to become a truly great exponent of the craft."

Ria Keen, Principal and Director of The Voice College

Eager to share her knowledge and passion for performing, Samantha aims to help others to master the craftsmanship of being an amazing singer by not only teaching the theory and technique behind the voice, but by establishing the self-confidence and self-belief needed to be an original and individual artist.
