I'd love to help you hone your technique and practice habits so you are working efficiently to become the best musician you can be. Whatever your goals may be - getting a better chair in your school orchestra, getting into your local youth orchestra, getting a great mark on your solo and ensemble contests, or just being able to enjoy playing more - I can help you with that! I'm kind, but firm, and if you enjoy paying attention to detail, and learning things correctly right from the start, I think we'd be a great match!

I worked with Laura through my high school years. She has been very helpful, and has worked with me so that I can have the best musical experience possible. She has always been very approachable and easy to talk to! The lessons were always very fun; she always made sure to give me a safe space to make music and not feel judged. Whenever looking into colleges and audition times came up, she knew how to approach the situation and how to prepare me for them! I am so grateful to have gotten to work with her!
Abigail Rios
Laura is a very encouraging, supportive teacher that pushes her students and works hard to help them be successful. I have been a student of hers for about 5 years now and I've experienced how amazing she is firsthand. She always motivates me to be the best I can be and improve beyond that. She makes herself available between lessons for questions and advice, which has always been super helpful. Overall, studying under her has been an enlightening, wonderful experience.

Laura is a dedicated violinist and teacher. As her colleague in the San Antonio Symphony, I am always impressed with her warmth, kindness and communication skills. She is a wonderful violinist, great team player and her personality will always brighten up your day!

"Best piano teacher I have ever had!

I started taking lesson this year and I love it! This is my third time trying different places and teachers, I am very picky and have high expectations. I find Debbie's knowledge about music and piano amazing! She is the most patient teacher I have ever had, I have a hectic schedule and no matter how often I have to change lessons or come unprepared she always is understanding and encouraging. And her personality is just so warming, she is full of praise even at times when I know I don't deserve it, yet she strives to push you forward, if one way doesn't work for you she will find a way that you are comfortable with so you continue to progress. She knows just about EVERYTHING there is to know about reading and playing music, even the Italian versions. I love the personal feel of being at her home studio, and would recommend her to friends and family, I look forward to many more lessons in the future !"
