Hello! My name is Lauren Spavelko, and I am excited to bring out the musician in you!
We have all sorts creating and learning—children and adults in their first lessons, teens and preteens performing and competing, working professionals looking for a creative love, and retirees coming back to an instrument from many years before. We have parents & children, siblings, and friends who learn and love to make music together!
Whether you're searching for yourself or your child, I would love to invite you to Musical Life—my beautiful in-home studio—and help you meet your musical goals.
We focus on developing true artistry and giving them the fundamental tools to be able to play and create various styles of music including classical, musical theater, folk, contemporary, Christian, and more.
We play from the very first lesson and learn other concepts such as music theory, literacy, and technique in subsequent lessons.
My students are involved in school & community ensembles, school & community theater, and district contests. I support and seek out these opportunities according to their interests.
Please send me a note! I can't wait to get started.
I have been teaching private lessons since 2007. My home studio, Musical Life, has been growing and thriving since my return from Louisville after completing my master's degree in 2016.
I taught Music Theory I and II to college undergraduate students. We covered the fundamentals of music literacy, developed their ear training and sightsinging skills, and analyzed and composed music of the Common Practice Period from Bach through Mozart.
I served as a traveling homeschool teacher to three boys (initially in grades 2, 5, & 7) as we toured the country with their family performing concerts of Christian music.
I toured regularly with Tajci across the country for two years, and now collaborate with her on occasional concerts. I performed as a solo violinist and backup vocalist. I also learned how to setup and run a professional sound system and gained a rudimentary knowledge of theater lighting. Occasionally, I act as assistant road manager when our producer cannot travel with us, coordinating many aspects of concert logistics.+ Read More
