Hi there!

My name is Laura and I can't wait to meet you! I am a professional pianist currently working/playing for Gulfshore Opera, Naples, Fl, and Opera Naples, Naples, Fl. I regularly work as a Coach and Pianist in Rome, Italy. I've been teaching private piano lessons since 2000 and have loved helping my students of all ages appreciate music and learn to play the piano. I went to University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and earned a Masters degree in Piano Performance. I'm a patient and nurturing person and my teaching style is primarily classical although I am very flexible and very open to tailoring lessons.

I very much look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Laura was a delightful teacher during my brief time in Fort Myers Beach! I'm coming out of a 12-year break from piano, and her combination of discipline and intuitive musicality really helped me get back in the "groove" of playing every day and rebuilding/growing my skills with great classical pieces. So sad to go!
