Currently the title role of the hit Off-Broadway revival of The Fiddler on the Roof, I love helping high school students with their college auditions! A graduate of Boston University's BFA Acting program, I have a deep understanding of various acting techniques that I bring to our classes. I can help you find the right contemporary and classical monologues and songs for your audition, so that you feel comfortable and confident!

About Lauren

Lisa (Catherine’s mom)
We love Lauren. She is making violin a great experience for our daughter (11 yrs old). She is very thorough and encouraging, and introduces interesting music that is fun and challenging for a beginner student. Our daughter says she can truly feel her own improvement, and is really happy to have additional lessons with Lauren, beyond what she receives in school. Lauren is flexible with scheduling and very reliable, and we intend to stick with her - and with the violin- for the duration!
Lauren
Lauren is an awesome violinist. I worked with her in a show and watched her tackle many different styles of music, improvise with other musicians, and collaborate on new material. I would recommend her to anyone!
Ruby
Lauren Thomas is an excellent musician with a tremendous amount of patience and a seemingly boundless supply of talents. As a fellow musician who has played professionally alongside Lauren, I have witnessed first hand her skilled mastery of both the flute and the violin -- as intuitive as she is technically proficient. Apart from her musical abilities, she's kind, fun and sensitive and would make for either a great beginner violin teacher or as an instructor for someone with intermediate skills looking to expand their abilities. Cannot recommend her highly enough! Whether you're seeking instruction in the flute or the violin, Lauren's the woman for the job.

Emma is a wonderful teacher. She was genuine and gentle when giving feedback. She was very relatable to my daughter who is 13 and made her feel completely at ease. My daughter learned a lot in one lesson and thoroughly enjoyed it.
AriDy Nox
Emma is an incredible performer, artist, song-writer, and educator! She is incredibly patient, kind, welcoming, and warm. She is extremely talented and attentive, which results in invaluable knowledge being imparted on a constant basis and encouraging critique on areas where one is more challenged.

Worth every penny!

Emma is a great and patient acting teacher. While my other teachers rarely dived into my characters' objectives, Emma never fails to work with me on character development, script analysis, projection, breathing, and stage presence. I learned so much from her, I recommend her for everyone.
