As a vocalist, synth-player, composer, and producer, I use my knowledge and experience in technology based professions to explore the relationship between music and tech.
As a “synth-enthusiast” who uses analog synths in sound design , I have cultivated a vivid musical aesthetic under the moniker mini bear, with which I have written, produced, and released 2 EPs and 1 full length album. Illustrating a sound rich in 80s referenced romantic nostalgia, mini bear has garnered praise and recognition from respected media such as Grimy Goods, Impose Magazine and international indie press. I am currently an active performer in Los Angeles, and I have played at local venues such as The Echo, Resident, The Hi Hat, Bootleg Theatre, Moroccan Lounge, and The Satellite.
My role as a teacher has also grown over the span of 10+ years. As a Creative Trainer at the Apple store, I have taught customers computer skills and Pro-Apple software such as Logic Pro in both private one-on-one and workshop settings. In addition to teaching adults, I have taught music production and Ableton to children ages 10-15 at Girls Rock camp. I have been producing in Ableton Live for the past four years, and I have done consulting sessions to determine work efficiency. Content and teaching styles are customized based upon the learners skills and learning styles.
As a Logic Certified trainer, I taught Logic Pro in both one-on-one and workshop environments.
Lauren is the best. I had taken a few online tutorials in Ableton, but it wasn’t until I had help putting all the pieces together in person that it started to click.
She is friendly, patient and she has an incredible understanding of Ableton. Highly recommended and grateful for her lessons.
Lauren is a fantastic teacher, patient and thorough in her technique. I learned so much from taking lessons with her!
Lauren's expertise and creativity really shines through during the lessons!! It's the perfect mix of a thorough, methodical lesson but also fun and extremely engaging, with room for our individual visions and artistry to shine through on Ableton. I can't recommend her enough, She's the best out there!!!+ Read More
Lauren was informative and organized but best of all, she explained each step of the recording process in a way that was easy to follow and understand. She used concrete examples and had me practice them on my own Ableton session to reinforce my learning.
