She brings the best out of all the students she has worked with. Under Lala’s guidance, even those who think that they have very little musical talent find that they have!"

"Lala has also taught singing to a big adult community choir (70 people). The songs she taught were in Malagasy and she is very skilled at making it simple even though the language is not easy to speak. Once again, Lala adapts herself to the group in front of her. She teaches in little manageable steps that makes it easy for everyone. Her joy of singing is inspiring and contagious... Lala has a great sense of humour and an incredible patience, she uses instruction that everyone can understand and she is a pleasure to look at as she so enjoys dancing herself, in a way just to see her dance makes you feel like dancing."
