About
If you are looking for a very "special" award winning pianist in the Dallas/Fort Worth area with a "great" extensive repertoire, you have come to the right place. SOUNDS OF LAURA has won the 2018 COUPLES' CHOICE AWARDS from Wedding Wire Network. This latest Award is in addition to Awards from Wedding Wire 6 years in a row: 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 & 2015. Awards are for excellence in quality, service, responsiveness, and professionalism. Laura provides top-quality live piano music for Wedding Ceremonies, Receptions, Corporate Events, Grand Openings, Parties (Christmas, Birthday, Anniversaries, Retirement, Children's Parties, etc.) She can provide her own 88 key electric, Yamaha piano & sound system. She further customizes the sound to fit the song style & genre of the music played. The result is a rich, beautiful, unique sound appropriate for many venues.

This creative, customizing of sound on her Yamaha Piano has set her apart from most pianists in the Dallas/Fort Worth Area. No other pianist is doing this type of creative work on their portable pianos. And to make things even better, Laura plays on an 88 key piano, not a keyboard. A keyboard only has 66 keys or less, and does not give an artist full range of the treble and bass. Being trained Classically, having full range of the treble and bass is "Very" important to Laura.

Traveling to 62 different towns, and cities across Texas, Laura has played both Traditional & Non-Traditional Weddings; both Indoor & Outdoor Weddings are all within this talented pianist expertise. The words of past & present clients best express what you will hear when you listen to SOUNDS OF LAURA: "Awesome," "Beautiful," "Romantic," "Elegant," "Amazing," "Unique", "Wonderful," "Flawless," "Spectacular," and simply "Gorgeous." Laura's broad repertoire of over 500 pieces of music enables her to create whatever mood or theme you are wanting for your special occasion. Song styles range from the 20's through the Contemporary Sounds of Today. Genres include: CLASSICAL, BROADWAY/FILM, POPULAR STANDARDS, FOLK, CLASSIC ROCK, POP, OLDIES, JAZZ, NEW AGE, RAGTIME, DIXIELAND/JAZZ, ALTERNATIVE ROCK, R&B, EASY LISTENING, COUNTRY, CONTEMPORARY, RELIGIOUS, GOTHIC, CHILDREN'S MUSIC, and WORLD MUSIC (including Russian, French, Italian, Indian, German, Asian, Indian, Hungarian, Spanish etc.)

Laura's versatility in genres & decades makes her ideally suitable for many venues: Conventions, Luncheons & Dinners (as background,) & Fundraisers, etc.

Coffee Houses, Restaurants, Retirement Communities, Hotels are also part of Laura's broad experience. In addition, she welcomes new venues.

Sounds of Laura can also provide a vocalist. She often accompanies her husband, T.J.

Laura was amazing when she performed at my wedding! I waited until the last minute to book music for my ceremony and she met with me around my schedule, suggested beautiful songs, and sounded amazing! Not to mention she went out of her way to visit my venue a few days before the wedding to make sure her set up would work with my venue, before I even officially booked her! She also picked out an adorable dress to match my wedding colors and is just a genuinely sweet person! Thank you Laura for making our special day sound amazing and a lot less stressful! -Cassie Marquez Arballo

Laura arrived early and began playing before the brunch actually started. It made it very pleasant with all the last minute activities, before the guests arrived. The musical selection was wonderful. She took my ideas for the kind of music wanted and created a seamless melodic experience.

From the first moment I spoke with Laura she was so gracious and warm. We invited her and her husband to our home to see our piano that we wanted her to play along with her electric piano. She had so many great ideas of what kinds of music to play for our event. We are so in love with the classics, 40s and 50s then even some current music. She knew it all! We were so impressed! The evening of our reception when we walked into our home after the ceremony the candles were lit, the food was out, our guests were there and you could hear Lauras piano in the air! It was a magical moment. We will be calling her back for many years to come. Thank you for finding her <3

Laura was amazing to work with. From email to working with her in her office home, she was professional, and willing to listen to my ideas while adding her musical talent and experience to my themes and compositions. With Laura's help, and advice we put together a unique and lovely wedding ceremony unlike any other I had ever attended. We incorporated traditional wedding music, with popular songs of ours using string and classic piano melodies composed by Laura. We will be using Laura for any other occasions we may be planning, and recommend Laura to all of our friends and family.
