I'd love to help you hone your technique and practice habits so you are working efficiently to become the best musician you can be. Whatever your goals may be - getting a better chair in your school orchestra, getting into your local youth orchestra, getting a great mark on your solo and ensemble contests, or just being able to enjoy playing more - I can help you with that! I'm kind, but firm, and if you enjoy paying attention to detail, and learning things correctly right from the start, I think we'd be a great match!

I worked with Laura through my high school years. She has been very helpful, and has worked with me so that I can have the best musical experience possible. She has always been very approachable and easy to talk to! The lessons were always very fun; she always made sure to give me a safe space to make music and not feel judged. Whenever looking into colleges and audition times came up, she knew how to approach the situation and how to prepare me for them! I am so grateful to have gotten to work with her!

Laura is a very encouraging, supportive teacher that pushes her students and works hard to help them be successful. I have been a student of hers for about 5 years now and I've experienced how amazing she is firsthand. She always motivates me to be the best I can be and improve beyond that. She makes herself available between lessons for questions and advice, which has always been super helpful. Overall, studying under her has been an enlightening, wonderful experience.
