As a music instructor, I am eager to cater to the needs of each individual child and to provide them with engaging musical experiences in supportive environments. I have previously provided violin, viola, and piano lessons to students of all ages both through Thompson Tutoring in Portage, Michigan and Reverb Lessons in Chicago, Illinois. I have approximately six years of private teaching experience.

I typically provide beginning piano lessons to young students, and frequently utilize the Faber Piano Adventures method books. I learned piano at a young age myself before revisiting the instrument for two years during my undergraduate studies.

I recently graduated from Roosevelt University's Chicago College of Performing Arts with a Master of Music Degree in Viola Performance. In 2016, I graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Music Degree in Viola Performance and Spanish. My performance experience includes both local and international venues. I have performed locally throughout the Southwest Michigan area, in orchestras such as the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra, Whiting Park Symphony Orchestra, Holland Symphony Orchestra, and Southwest Michigan Symphony Orchestra. I have also performed internationally in St. Petersburg, Russia; Casalmaggiore, Italy; and Puebla, Mexico; and throughout South Africa.

Laura is an amazing teacher - I could see it right away - and my daughter really opened up to her. It seems, however that my daughter may not be ready to study the piano just yet. We bought a 5-lesson package, so we will see if that changes between now and then. Either way, Laura was a great choice for our first piano instructor!

One lesson in, I'm feeling ready to tackle a Bruch concerto!

Laura has been amazing from the first message. She answered many questions and helped us understand what was needed to help make it possible for my step daughter Aelia to take lessons. She was patient and listened to us. We are excited to see Amelia excel with a dream of hers.
