I have been taking online lessons with Robin for the past few months, and have been amazed at how quickly I have learnt the ukulele! I am able to play some of my favorite songs. Robin is fantastic, she is always on time, is very patient, attentive and informative, her teaching style is very easy to follow and leaves me feeling motivated rather than out of my depth. Highly recommended.

Laura D. Haydenville, MA

About Laura

I began teaching while working toward my undergraduate degree, and began offering private lessons in 2010. I have taught students ranging in age from four through adult and believe strongly in targeting each student's experience to his or her individual interests, abilities, and personality. I believe in making lessons fun and giving students a say in how their arts education progresses. I encourage and inspire and welcome input at every step of the way. I balance all of this with a solid grounding in the subject, be it music or theater, and take care to ensure that students understand each concept. Come see how enjoyable, satisfying, and enriching the arts can be!

I can also play Bluegrass, Rock, Acoustic, Country, Pop, Fusion, Funk, Jam and Singer/Songwriter. Any of these genres I'm able to teach and give insight about playing and performing.
