Laura Caitlin Jensen has been singing professionally for 10 years and teaching solidly for 6 years, holds a Bachelor of Popular Music and Performing (JMC Academy), along with years of experience in the entertainment industry. During her time at University, Laura was awarded “Most Outstanding Student of the Year” two years running (2010, 2011) for her academic and musical achievements such as her show stopping cabaret production “Musique” (Judith Wright Centre). With such a deep love for the stage, Laura has been involved in various Musicals (The Wedding Singer), Jazz/Pop Bands (UQ Big Band), Corporate Events (River Stage, Brisbane City Hall), Festivals (French Festival) and Theatre productions.
In recent years, Laura’s talents have blossomed both on stage and behind the scenes as the Producer of vocal duo, ROYAL (Sam Payne, Laura Caitlin Jensen). Staging innovative charity shows in unexpected settings, ROYAL attracted media attention in 2017 being approached by Gumtree Australia and TV Host Jason Dundas to partake in a short film series telling their serendipitous story (Courier Mail, news.com.au). ROYAL continue to tour their shows to venues, corporate events and festivals around Australia.
Since starting her teaching business in 2012, Laura has guided her students through ANZCA, AMEB Examinations, Eisteddfods, Musical/Cruise Ship auditions and Music Degree acceptance. She
creates a nurturing and judgement free learning environment to bring the best out in her students. Above all, Laura wishes to encourage students to sing primarily for the joy it brings them and others while utilizing strong technique taught in various styles appropriate for each student’s unique voice. If students wish to pursue further study and performance, Laura is there every step of the way! Laura currently teaches from her home studio in Wurtulla and various schools on the Sunshine Coast and is excited to join the Montessori Community as the College’s onsite Singing Teacher.
