I will teach catered to whatever you're wanting to learn! If your goal is to play your favorite songs from a movie soundtrack, or you're wanting to work your way through a beginner piano book, I can help! I have experience teaching piano to 4-7 year-olds, but have taught violin and Spanish to all ages and genuinely love teaching every age :)

About Laurel K.

Hi!

Spanish:
I have been speaking Spanish fluently since 2008! I love kids and love sharing Spanish and my love of language with others! I graduated from Indiana University in 2013, with a minor in Spanish! I have been speaking Spanish fluently since 2008, when I studied with IU Honors Program in Leon, Spain for 7 weeks! We spoke only in Spanish the entire summer, and took classes in grammar, literature, culture, and accent work. I have been speaking consistently and fluently ever since! I have taught several students in Spanish, whether tutoring for a school class or starting at the very beginning for students who just want to speak better, I have loved every Spanish teaching experience!

Piano:
I teach beginners, ages 4 and up! I am doing my masters in music education at Butler right now, and have a passion for teaching music!! These lessons will be 100% what you want them to be! If you want theory knowledge, I'll include that! If you want to be able to accompany yourself while singing, let's make it happen!

Violin:
I have been playing violin since 1st grade and can teach all levels! I have taught all ages, and all styles! Bluegrass, classical, whatever you want! Whatever you want to be a part of your lessons, we can do it! These are for you!

Let me know what exactly you're looking for and I can curate our lessons accordingly!

Have an awesome day and thanks for viewing my profile!

My daughter loves the time she spends with Laurel, and Laurel is so patient. She chooses appropriately challenging pieces for my daughter to try and was willing to personalize the lesson time to fit daughter's interests. It's been great!

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!
