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.
Taught group keyboarding to 3rd and fourth grade classes. 30 students at a time!
My son is having a wonderful experience taking lessons online with Laura. She has an exceptional knowledge of music and is able to share this knowledge in a way that is easily understood. I value her positive feedback, timeliness, and consistency. She takes interest in the student and works to draw out their passion for playing the instrument. As a parent, I would highly recommend hiring Laura.+ Read More

Amazing and loving teacher! Laura really cares about her students and has a lot of experience herself. Would highly recommend :)
Yesterday was our first meeting with Laura. She was kind, and patient with my son. She showed that she cared about his needs and interest which I like.
Laura is amazing. She was patient with my 7 year old.
My experience with Laura has been great! She has definitely helped me rekindle my piano playing abilities and feel comfortable playing again.
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.
I really love my lessons with Laura and look forward each week for more of her patient instruction.
My daughter was thrilled with her first lesson!
My first lesson with Laura was very pleasant. I am looking forward to learning from her
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, kind and knowledgable. We will definetly continue to work with her and highly recommend her. My daughter felt really comfortable and enjoyed working with her.
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.
My experience working with Laura has been wonderful. She is a compassionate person with a beautiful voice and is quite experienced at providing guidance and techniques in improving my voice for singing. Her methods inculcate lifting up and elevating ones vocal capabilities, not tearing down or diminishing ones capabilities. I am very pleased with her professionalism and insight in how to work with and train my voice.+ Read More
Taught a retired math school teacher
Laura is a fantastic teacher! I'm delighted to learn to play the guitar and feel blessed to work with Laura... :-))
Didn't think I could sing,but Laura taught me that I can. I play guitar in a rock band and I just bought a new mic,and I'll be doing back up vocals. She's a great teacher, very professional,knows her music. If you have ever wanted to sing, she can make it happen. I highly recommend her.
Will ask for Laura again and recommend her to anyone.
