Hey Ya'll!
I'm Laura, and I grew up in a log cabin in Kentucky, no joke! My three sisters and I sang in the church where my Mama played organ, and our family had a bluegrass band. I learned piano at an early age from my Grandpa Joe, and played French Horn and Mellophone in Marching Band and Concert band through Middle school and High School. At the University of Kentucky I was in some of the best Collegiate choirs in the country, and thats also when I started playing in my own band.
I moved to Europe when I was 20, and started playing street music and performing locally. Well, that turned into me having my own variety show called the Southern Flavor Show, and touring quite a bit, all over Europe.
Now, I'm settled in Redlands CA, and work part-time in the Music Industry in Los Angeles at one of the worlds leading recording studios. We record all kinds of music there, but my favorite music is and will always be the Bluegrass, Folk, and Country music that I grew up with. I'm excited about getting to share my love of music with you!
My main goal is for you to stay inspired and for this to be fun- music technique and practicing can be challenging, but we will find ways to keep you interested and motivated, by listening to lots of recorded music, and making sure you really love the songs you are learning. This kind of music is made for playing together, so if you would like I can get you up to speed on how to play with others- in a jam or performance setting.
