“A Most Rewarding Independent Music Studio”

“It presents a lot of ideas that you wouldn’t initially think about until you get a studio up and running and realize, oh hey, I should have thought this out before now.”  Jennifer Sandford, Independent Piano Instructor of Key Instructions, Lee’s Summit, MO


“Laurie Cosby is a fantastic vocal coach / teacher. She made each lesson fun and every lesson concluded with me having things to work on until the next lesson. That way, the lesson seemed to last with me and encouraged me to rehearse, thereby making my money go farther than just that one lesson. She improved my voice and also made me feel better about my performances at the same time. If you can do so, and you are a performer, go and see her – you’ll truly be happy that you did.” Lana K. Hoover, Actress/Singer and Editor’s Choice Winner for Musical Theatre, Retired Drama Teacher, Fossil Creek High School, Keller, TX

“Donna Hinds has helped me to shape my musical philosophy in both performance and teaching. She taught me how to approach music without lyrics as a vocalist, how to evoke images and emotion through visualization. Donna is also a consummate performer – I have had the pleasure of performing in recital with her on a couple of occasions. She actually demonstrates very naturally the same concepts that she teaches to her students. Ms. Hinds has taken the time to study not only her craft, but how to pass it on to her students in a most clear and concise manner. What more could one ask from a teacher!” Dr. Woody Witt Professor of Music, Houston Community College Affiliate Artist, University of Houston Moores School of Music International recording and performing artist, having shared the stage with such great musicians as Ray Charles, Tony Bennett, Kenny Rogers, The Four Tops as well as jazz artists including 2 time Grammy Winner Randy Brecker, Tom Harrell, James Moody and many others.

“Donna Hinds is a dedicated singer with the best interest of the student in mind. She is a gifted and beautiful soprano who understands the mechanics of good singing, and she imparts a good vocal foundation on all her singing students, whether they be young, old, advanced or beginner. I would recommend her highly as a teacher of singing.” Todd Miller, D.M.A. Professor of Music/Lead Music Faculty Kingwood College, Kingwood, TX

“Donna is an admired colleague for whom I have the greatest respect. Her knowledge of vocal technique, her creative ideas which provide growing experiences and promotional opportunities for singers, and her energetic, warm, and generous personality add up to an ideal voice teacher.” Wade Hescht, Department Chair of Drama and Speech North Harris College, Houston, TX
