My lessons are engaging, student-centered, and never intimidating. My goal is to meet the needs of the person in front of me - period. No longer study with someone who follows the "master-apprentice" approach. This mind-set is outdated, and most of all, ineffective. My extraordinary training in both psychology and music education allow me to convey the best of teaching strategies to my students, leading to their musical success.

You will not be disappointed.

I am an adult who always wanted to be able to sing and express myself through music, but unfortunately did not have the natural ability to hold a tune. Lauren worked with me to systematically develop my range and strengthen my voice and vocal confidence. I am learning a lot of practical techniques, and Lauren gives me lots of individualized feedback and helps me develop good vocal habits/health.

Lauren is a kind, professional and overall lovely teacher. She started with us teaching my 11 yo daughter piano but we have since switched to singing because that is what my daughter wants to do and Lauren is extremely qualified.
