Overview

I teach voice, piano and guitar. My Music Degree from Point Loma Nazarene University is in Vocal Performance. I love what I do. I teach children through adults. I have lots of experience in worship
leading for church if that is of interest.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am easy-going, but I expect you to practice. I am thorough in my approach. For piano lessons, I utilize the Alfred method. I emphasize note reading and theory in each genre, whether taking guitar, voice or piano. I am currently using Hal Leonard's Guitar Method books for guitar and a few different things for vocal curriculum. All lessons can be supplemented with what you are currently interested in or working towards. I enjoy helping prepare young people for their performances in theatre arts. Lessons can be combined, for example; if you are interested in both voice and guitar, you can take a longer weekly lesson and have both subjects covered! Weekly assignments are given and checked to see if done before proceeding to the next step! I do not recommend students come every other week. I recommend one lesson per week.

*** Travel Equipment ***
guitar and books. Student provides their guitar during lesson and for piano, must have a piano or keyboard at home for practice.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in helping young worship leaders hone their gifts. I enjoy preparing people for their musical theatre performances.

Laura is a great teacher! My grandson is interested in a variety of styles and has already shown progress after only four lessons. Laura teaches proper technique and gives good warm up exercises. My grandson really looks forward to his class each week.

Laura is great! My son just turned 5 and has had only a handful of lessons with her and has already learned so much. She is very patient and so good with kids! Highly recommended!

Extremely patient and kind. The first thing my daughter said when she left her first lesson was how nice Laura is and how she learned a lot in her first lesson. We look forward to more lessons.
