Hi!

I have been playing violin since 1st grade, and speaking Spanish since kindergarten!

I love kids and love sharing music and Spanish with others! I graduated from Indiana University in 2013! I minored in Spanish and Music! I have extensive Music Education experience and was the Music Director at a summer camp in Indiana! I play all styles, from fiddle to classical to country to jazz and improv violin and can teach any and all!

I have been speaking Spanish fluently since 2008, when I studied with IU Honors Program in Leon, Spain for 7 weeks of all Spanish! We took classes in Grammar, Literature, Culture, and Accent work, and I have been speaking consistently and fluently ever since!

Contact TakeLessons and we can set up a trial lesson for Violin, Music Theory, or Spanish!

Have an awesome day and thanks for viewing my profile!

My daughter enjoyed Laurel very much. Laurel was extremely encouraging and gave her major ego boosts. She gave her the right amount of homework and a writing exercise :) my daughter asked for her again! Laurel is extremely warm and nurturing. Thank you Laurel!

Laurel has been great for our daughter - kind, patient and understanding. As parents we had many theories on how to get the best out of our daughter in this short amount of time. Laurel incorporated our requests and made it fun. Thanks Laurel!
