Lauren Cauley plays Kreisler's Liebesfreud Liebesleid
I learned this piece in two weeks during the summer while at a chamber music festival in New York.
This is a wonderfully exciting piece by Andy Akiho we recorded it  live in one take in Spring 2013 - it gets really crazy after the marimba comes it, give a listen and enjoy!

Lauren is an excellent teacher for adult students!

At the age of 54 I decided to purchase a violin and learn to play. I found Lauren Cauley through and could not be more pleased with her!! She has taught me so much in my first four weeks. She's patient with me and encourages me when I get discouraged with my play. She is quick to answer the numerous questions I have. She is an extremely talented musician with a talent for teaching. She pushes me in my weekly assignments and ensures I've mastered one level before we move to the next. Thanks Lauren!!
