About Lauren

RESERVE your FALL LESSONS slot today! Sign-up now to save 10-35%!

Hello there! My name is Lauren, and I have over a decade of experience teaching violin. I earned my BM and MM degrees from Eastman School of Music in Violin Performance and perform regularly at venues such as Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, and the Kennedy Center.

As a teacher, I adapt my teaching methods on-the-spot to introduce and reinforce concepts in a patient, enthusiastic, and creative manner tailored to each student. In addition to equipping my students with proper violin technique , students are empowered and develop their communication skills and confidence while fostering a lasting curiosity for learning and a genuine love for the imaginative and expressive capabilities of music.

Lessons generally focus on four major areas: scales, etudes, ensemble parts

(orchestra and chamber music), and solo repertoire. Music theory and ear-training activities supplement work in these areas. A portion of lesson-time is also devoted to preparing students for entrance and seating auditions, when applicable. In addition to weekly lessons, my students perform solos in recitals and are encouraged to participate in extra-curricular ensembles.

As a guest artist and educator, I've has given performances and worked with students at universities around the world, including Bard College; Berklee College of Music; Chinese University of Hong Kong; Cornell University; Dartmouth College; Eastman School of Music; Harvard University; Shanghai Conservatory; Universidade Federal do Paraná; University of Alaska, Anchorage; University of California, Berkeley; University of California, San Diego; and Wesleyan University.

Please "Ask Lauren A Question" to learn more about lessons with me!

Generally lessons are 60 minutes once a week. For younger students or adults on a budget, 45 minute lessons are available. 30 minute lessons are for students 8 and younger. If students have an upcoming concert/audition, or would simply like to progress faster, twice weekly lessons are available.

*** Specialties ***

All of my students learn how to read music from the beginning of their playing. For addressing technique with young kids, she uses fun pneumonic devices such as "pizza box hand," "flamingo arm," and "umbrella fingers," to help students remember, identify, and visualize proper hand, arm, and finger placement. They practice note names and rhythm through singing and memorization games. With these activities, students practice at home on their own and advance weekly between lessons while developing a love for playing the violin.

Lauren is an amazing violin instructor to our 11 year old son. She is always on time, has a great way with kids, and really brought out his confidence. I over heard him in the lesson saying “ohhh, that’s how you do it.” Lauren is a highly accomplished musician and outstanding teacher. We highly recommend her to anyone.

When I first started studying with Lauren in 2017, I was a freshman in high school and stuck in the fifth stand of my orchestra. Six months later, I moved up to being the concert master. Lauren is amazing. She brings out the best in my playing. She has a great ear for music, she is an amazing violinist, and the best teacher I have ever had. With Lauren I was able to progress from 3rd position to 7th position in a short time. She is very kind and patient, and never gets frustrated with me (unlike all my other teachers). She is the reason I have been able to excel at violin. Best. Teacher. Ever.

About Alexandra

Music has always been a very significant part of my life. I began taking piano lessons at age seven and grew up listening to and playing classical music. As I started to grow older, the piano began to become such a large part of my identity and a way for me to express my emotions and creativity. My goal is to share and instill this love of music with others!

My educational background includes an MM in Piano Performance and Pedagogy from Westminster Choir College. During my time here, I completed an internship at Westminster Conservatory teaching group piano classes. Upon graduating, I was offered a position as artist faculty and continued to teach private and group classes at the Conservatory.

I also hold a BM in Piano Performance with a concentration in Pedagogy from the Crane School of Music SUNY Potsdam. During my time at Crane,

I was enrolled in several piano pedagogy practicum classes, where I was able to work with both children and adult students, focusing on beginning-intermediate repertoire.

***Lesson Details****

A working piano/keyboard is required. Electronic keyboards should be full-size with weighted keys. Lessons are tailored to fit the age and level of each student. For beginning students, I start them off in method books that focus on performance, technique, and theory. Students are gradually introduced to musical concepts that will help to build a solid foundation and understanding. I work to reinforce these concepts during each lesson to ensure that they are retained. I believe that all students should be introduced to classical music, but I am happy to teach popular music as well.

***Cancellation Policy***
I ask that students give at least 24-hours notice in the event that they need to cancel. No makeups will be given for no-shows or cancellations with less than 24-hours notice.

I took private piano lessons with Alex for three years. Hands down, Alex was the best teacher I've had. Alex has a knack for teaching. She provided very targeted and detailed feedback on my techniques and taught me how to improve in a very precise way so that I was able to focus on my weaknesses. Alex was the kindest teacher one could possibly imagine. She always delivered her comments in a very accessible manner and made me feel very comfortable and believed that I could improve. I came a long way in the three years under her and I miss her lessons so much! I would recommend Alex to anyone who is interested in learning how to play the piano.

Alex was a very patient and excellent teacher. She made sure I knew the piece that I was assigned thoroughly before moving on to another piece. She is very good at detail.. I was sorry to lose her after having her for 2 and 1/2 years.

About Zachary

I am an orchestral conducting Masters graduate from Mannes College of Music who has been playing piano since the age of 4. I have been teaching beginner and intermediate piano for the past 5 years to students ranging from ages 7 - 65. I teach all types of styles ranging from classical to jazz to pop with everything in-between.

My students can expect to develop a strong and reliable technique while being able to express their musical ideas with a clear and dynamic level of sophistication. It's the stories and emotions that draw people to music, so I do my best to base my teachings around that concept.

"Mr. Steve Bruce is a dedicated and professional instructor. He not only appreciates his students, but is committed to see them progress as musicians. He l
et's them know that they can go as far as they want with their music; they just need to do this one thing: do your homework-->practice, practice, practice, he will work on the rest. Both my daughters have been taking lessons with Steve for over 4 yrs and have the confidence to play in front of a group, they are only 8 & 9 yrs old. If you are looking to find a teacher who is committed to you, then Steve is the right instructor."
