Greetings!

My name is Lauren Spaulding; I love teaching, learning, and sharing my music ... but, I also love rock climbing, my awesome Bengal cat, and exploring!

After many dedicated hours of hard work, I graduated from the prestigious Oberlin Conservatory with my BM in performance, my MM in Performance, and a Post-Masters degree in orchestral studies. I am fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with, and share with my students the knowledge of today's most renowned musicians. This is important because ... as my favorite teacher once said ... "greatness comes by first eliminating the bad [habits]" -- therefore, starting your musical adventure with strong habits is an important step in creating a foundation for future success!

Currently, I am a full time symphonic and chamber musician in the Broomfield area, and I have performed in many ensembles including with Rod Stewart, Stevie Wonder, the Transiberian Orchestra, and at the White House for President Obama.

I understand that not every student is preparing for a Conservatory! So, whether you seek a serious musical path or the simple joy of learning an instrument -- I strive to teach pedagogical and musicial elegance ...enjoyably. 😄

Contact me to further discuss additional times available and start your lessons today!

Lauren is excellent with my son, Alex. She is always professional but fun during lessons and is able to easily relate to a 13 year old! Alex's skills and motivation continues to improve and he currently plans to audition for Youth Orchestra with Lauren's encouragement.

Ms. Lauren has really helped my daughter improve her skills as a young violist in just a short period of time. She creates a positive and fun environment for learning and each week my daughter is super excited to go in and "show off" her progress to Ms. Lauren. I would highly reccomend Ms. Lauren as music teacher for anyone! She also excels at prompt communication and as a busy parent I cannot describe how much my family has appreciated that.

Lauren is a wonderful teacher! I have really enjoyed my time learing from this kind and patient musical wizard!

Expert musician, expert teacher. I am one of Lauren's past advanced viola students now pursuing viola performance on the east coast. Not only did Lauren really helped me prepare my demanding college and conservatory audition material, but I felt as though I had a "leg up" on technique and practice abilities when I finally arrived!

Thank you!!

Lauren is highly creative, an amazingly gifted musician, and provides my three kids with a fun and supportive learning environment. I've had several teachers come to my house for lessons before, but my kids really did not enjoy music lessons until they began taking with Lauren!

Not only is Lauren a great violin and viola teacher for my beginning, intermediate, and advanced kids, but because she has worked with kids in many capacities (as a horse back instructor, as sailing instructor, as a camp counselor, and as a preschool assistant) I feel she provides rich life skills that go beyond music.
