Hi! I'm Ms. Laura. I'm not a musical prodigy who started lessons when she was two years old. I was a regular seven year old who loved playing soccer and hanging out with my friends and family.

I showed some interest in music so my parent's signed me up for piano and I ended up really loving it! I was a pretty shy and quiet kid, but playing the piano gave me a way to express myself. Piano taught me how to grow musically, but also mentally and emotionally. It taught me how to work hard, appreciate different types of music and create my own style. It also allowed me to meet some amazing teachers who inspired me not only to be a better musician, but a better person.

I was classically trained by a nationally certified music teacher In junior high and high school and in college I studied piano pedagogy from a talented professor who attended Julliard. I enjoyed competing and performing, but loved teaching others the most.

I went on to teach private piano lessons to many beginners of all ages, but specialize in helping children make their first introduction to piano a positive, fun experience, while giving them a strong foundation in proper technique.

Laura's a joy to work with. Her wonderful, kind nature is addictive to children (and adults!)...making her the perfect companion for making learning fun, interactive and encouraging for children to want to learn more, practice more and show "Ms. Laura" everything they have learned from week to week. You will be in great hands with Laura and can feel her passion for teaching with an extra smile! So rewarding!!

Laura taught our 3 children. She was so patient and encouraging. She was wonderful at making the lessons fun while still being educational. Our kids looked forward to lessons every week.

My kids were 4 and 6 when they started piano with Laura. She was very sweet and patient and they loved her. Sadly, she moved away, but we miss her and definitely recommend for young children!
