Do you want to play classical piano music: Bach, Mozart, Beethoven? You are in the right place! I choose and adapt songs according to the age, interests, goals, and skills of the students. I also use the songs to teach different musical concepts: intervals, progressions, scales, chords. Every student is different, so I don't use any specific method. También disponible la clase en español.
About Laura M.

I am a pianist, a songwriter, and a 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 classical 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.

Laura had such a welcoming presence and didn’t make me feel bad about my voice at all, she made me feel way more confident. I am a beginner and I noticed an instant change in my voice, a good change. Laura also introduced me to a new part of my voice I didn’t know existed so I would definitely recommend her to anyone I meet.
