She made me feel like I wasn't doing anything wrong but at the same time encouraged me to keep improving through positive reinforcement.

I really liked my piano lesson. My instructor is very kind and caring. My instructor individualizes our lessons so none are ever the same and my lessons are different from someone else's. My lessons go at my own pace. She makes sure to practice things that I struggle with and gives me constructive criticism. She says and does it all in a positive way and it causes me to really enjoy my lessons.

Lauren is such a patient and thorough teacher. She designed each lesson based on my progress and learning style. I feel like I made so much progress in my singing and speaking because she was an astute listener and helpful guide. Also, I enjoyed going to each lesson.

Lauren is patient and inspiring. She has a unique knack for clearly breaking down the lesson for both beginners and intermediate. Her calm approach is refreshing.
