Experienced ukulele teacher of 2 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of technical and music theory skills. I typically use Rainbow Ukulele books, and also have the following tools available to use during lessons: ukulele, curriculum.

About Laura D.

I carry a degree in vocal performance from University of Cincinnati-Conservatory of Music, in addition to a second degree in Music Education from University of North Florida. I am currently employed as a music teacher in a local Clay County Elementary School, and am looking to expand my influence to teaching private lessons!

I have taught voice lessons privately since 2011, and I am comfortable teaching children as well as teenagers and adults--anyone who's looking to improve their vocal techniques and skill! I have a lot of hands on experience and a deep understanding of how the vocal instrument works, and how best to take proper care of it.

I've also expanded my knowledge into the realm of teaching beginner/intermediate piano, as well as beginner ukulele and am excited to share this with you!

One thing I can also guarantee-you'll have fun while you learn! I have a welcoming, bubbly personality and I love to share my God-given talents with others. Feel free to ask any questions and reach out to me, I'm happy to assist!
