Working with Jenny has been a great experience.

She has a wealth of knowledge in music. She was raised around music so it comes as second nature to her. Her experience definitely shows from theory to technique, structure to general perspective.

Jen's wide-ranging experience allows her to accommodate different learning styles. Even when I was unsure of which methods were most suitable for me, she was able to determine an appropriate approach. Each lesson is tailored around your preference while still maintaining steady progress towards your goals.

She's flexible, patient, communicative, and fun to work with. Her versatility has made learning piano so much easier and more exciting for me than before. I'm always looking forward to each session. I've also been able to learn about other aspects of music, as she isn't limited to piano; she's knowledgeable of other instruments and teaches dance as well.

One of my favorite things about Jen is that, even though she's easy to work with, she ensures that I've truly grasped one concept before moving to the next. It's also always great to see her play (:

Highly recommended

Jenny is on time always. The first lesson, she had the books ready and was very professional. I am very happy with her teaching abilities.

Jenny is wonderful. She is patient and understanding, and adjusts to the student's needs. I recommend her for anyone.

I am so moved by movement! I've had the pleasure of being a professional dancer in both New York and Los Angeles. I've traveled the world on tour, performed live on television, and worked in TV and film, I love teaching, choreographing, and exploring movement with dancers and non-dancers alike. I've been able to work with actors and singers as a movement coach for TV and film and live performances, but some of my happiest experiences are teaching and creating dances for special occasions like father daughter dances at weddings or a surprise flash mob for birthdays.

My goal with each session is help the client feel empowered to move, express, or feel joyful. Classes can focus on dance technique in Jazz, Contemporary, Street Jazz, or Ballet. Classes can also focus on self exploration, creative expression, or story telling through movement! The goal is to get moving and feel great!

I am also a certified personal trainer and certified nutrition coach, which all help to aid our ...

Lauren is THE BEST and I am so grateful I found such a gem of a dance teacher. I am a professional dancer in Los Angeles who had only taken a few Irish dance classes before I started working with Lauren online in April. With her help, I have learned SO much in only 4 months, and recently passed the first 6 Irish grade exams. She is so patient, encouraging, fun, and her online learning portal and videos are immensely helpful for learning virtually. I could not recommend her enough!
Elizabeth and John Le
Lauren is terrific. Our daughter absolutely enjoys her classes.
