1996

I am a pianist, songwriter, and keyboard player and backup singer for a prog-rock band and also a music teacher.

I've been teaching music for a long time. Why? Because I love music and I love to teach. My mission statement: get you to enjoy music while learning.

The best moments on my work are when the students realize that they can play/sing something that they couldn't do before. I love their expressions at that moment.

I started playing music when I was 7: the recorder, the Spanish guitar, a double keyboard organ that I used to learn how to play the piano by myself. Later on, I started with official piano lessons and ended with my BA in piano.

My training was classical but I love new age music and jazz.

During my piano lessons, you can learn theory, composition, play classical music and know the differences between different periods, play pop, jazz, rock, learn how to read lead sheets. I adapt songs you like to your skills so you can start playing your favorite music from the first day.

During my singing lessons, you can learn how to use your "instrument" (your voice) properly: breathing, posture, pitch, resonance, agility, vocal range, riffs.

My daughter has been taking lessons with Laura for over 3 years. Laura makes the lessons fun and challenges her to learn. She even adds a little music theory which my daughter enjoys.

My 15 year old looks forward to learning from Laura every week! She also learns the piano and keyboard from Laura. We would recommend her to anyone!

My 12 year old daughter took vocal lessons from Laura. She used pop music which was perfect for my daughter’s age. Oftentimes my daughter picked out her music so Laura knows how to engage kids. Laura’s great and would highly recommend.

I met Laura in the summer of 2018 while searching for a voice coach for my 12 year old daughter. My daughter was comfortable with her from the first minute. She is eager to go to her lessons and smiling when she leaves. Laura likes to start with the basics and has an eye for identifying anything unique about her students voice that she can encourage and refine. My daughters voice and confidence have grown immensely. She just performed a solo in a talent show and received rave reviews from her peers and chorus instructors. More importantly, my daughter is finding her own voice and enjoying every moment of it thanks to Laura.

Laura is a fantastic piano teacher. I’m an adult beginner and I love her teaching style. She makes you believe in yourself from the first piano lesson. She is excellent. I am amazed at how much I have learned in one year!! I highly recommend her.

Laura was tremendously helpful in teaching me the practical necessities and techniques in performing vocals on a regular basis. I'd never had formal voice lessons, and while I felt confident performing, I tended to blow my voice out, which limited show lengths. Lauren taught me how to keep up the energy, intensity, and full vocal range, while being able to maintain stamina and intensity throughout a show. Thank you, Laura!

My child has been taking private piano lessons with Laura for over a year now and he loves it. She is very patient and engaging and makes it a fun learning experience for her students. She is also flexible in teaching different compositions based on the student's interest and pace of learning.

Excellent piano teacher. Very familiar with all genres of music. Extremely patient and easy to work with. I look forward to each week’s lesson, along with some instruction to practice at home.

Great teacher! I'm enjoying her classes very much. I was so happy to find a teacher that is able to conduct the class towards my objectives and likes, and, at the same time, pushes my technique skills forward! I've being practicing a few different music styles, so far: classical, evergreens, rock, musicals. Glad that Laura has this wide range of knowledge. And classes are fun!
