About Lauren T.

I'm a Broadway performer in NYC, and have played such roles as the Fiddler in the hit off-Broadway revival of The Fiddler on the Roof, directed by Oscar and Tony award winner Joel Grey (2019 Drama Desk Winner Best Musical Revival) and Reza in the national tour of Once (Tony winner best musical). I have years of professional experience teaching violin and acting. I also offer lessons in singing, music theory, piano, and flute. I received my BFA in Acting from Boston University's school of theater. As a classically trained musician, I've been able to incorporate my musical talents with my career as an actress. I play a range of professional gigs, from churches and synagogues to rock concerts to pit orchestras. My range of experience helps me cater lessons to you and your specific needs. It is important to me that my students are exposed to a range of styles to help them develop ear training and sight-reading skills. For that reason, each lesson incorporates improvisation, technical drills, and a song for performance. Please reach out to me, and I will be happy to answer your questions!

Absolutely amazing! I am an adult beginner and Lauren has been extremely patient and energetic with me as I learn to not hit other strings and screech.

Lauren has been an exceptional teacher for our daughter who has just begun her singing journey.
