Teacher Feature: Lauren Adaska Vocal Instructor
Some of our favorite teachers come from Cal State Fullerton and new instructor Lauren Adaska definitely falls into this category! Ms. Adaska is currently working toward her degree in Vocal Performance at Cal State Fullerton. Just now entering her second year with academic honors, she already holds accomplishments that would seem she is well past her years.
Lauren has been singing and studying voice for over 12 years, including 9 years of private lessons. She is also self-taught on guitar and ukulele which can be a fun addition to lessons! Her achievements include 3 years county, regional and all-state Honor Choir participation through ACDA and TKMEA. She was also President of her choir at Redwood High School and 100% lifetime member for the California Scholarship Federation. Lauren has also been featured in several live performances throughout Southern California. She has been trained with classical, theatre, and contemporary techniques and enjoys music composition.
Some of Ms. Adaska’s goals for her students would be for them to find their own passion in singing and also learn to communicate and express ideas that go beyond what is written on the page. She also believes,
Music is one of the most important things in her life because it’s the perfect blend of artistry and function. There is a very logical, almost mathematical way that music works, but the way that it can touch another human being and make them feel something they might not have felt before is beyond any sort of structure that we can come up with intentionally.
Ms. Adaska is truly inspired and enthusiastic to share the relationship that music creates.
“Music was my refuge. I could crawl into the space between the notes and curl my back to loneliness.”
