“Laura Nadine is a musician, teacher, powerful advocate, and a very good friend. She has presented to our staff, families, and Atlanta community about her journey and her unique perspective of disability and differences. Because she is such an important guide for Hirsch, she is now on our advisory board. Laura also created our first ever music program at Hirsch. She presumes competence in all her students, supporting them in her unique, skilled and loving way. Not only does she teach students to play violin, viola and cello, she more importantly instills a desire and love of music in all her students. We look forward to continuing our relationship of listening, learning and a forever friendship with Laura Nadine.”

“Laura is a gifted musician and, perhaps more importantly, a gifted teacher who inspires a love of music in her students. Laura takes a genuine interest in each of her students. She learns their strengths and identifies areas where they need extra work. Laura connects with her students to help them achieve their goals as musicians while keeping it fun so students want to keep learning.”

— Brian Dooley, Aspire Fitness, Toronto ON, CA

“Laura worked on a project with me, helping me produce a recording of vocal music. I have have been performing for 45 years, and I found Laura to be extremely professional. She provided all of the arrangements of the music, she performed many of the instrumental parts, and she found and managed the other musicians involved. Her work allowed me to concentrate on my own part, the singing. I recommend her work.”

— KC Burgess Yakemovic, Atlanta GA, USA

“Laura is capable of providing great musical insights into some of the most challenging works in the violin repertoire. Her extensive teaching experience shows in the way she clearly communicates these ideas and her ability to connect with her students in a personal way that makes lessons a comfortable and productive learning environment.”
