Laurie was great! She was thorough in our initial lesson and explaining what she was looking for in order to help with upcoming lessons. She is very sweet and patient which is wonderful especially with young kids!

Great first lesson. Laurie was extremely patient and knowledgeable. The half hour I spent was informative and I walked away believing that I will succeed.

I've zero music genes in my body but am always interested to learn to play the piano. I'm glad to have Laurie as my piano teacher because not only is she great with giving instructions, her patience is God sent. I can truly tell she loves teaching music and cares for her students. Thank you Laurie; can't wait to play my first piece of music in entirety.

Laurie was so energetic, fun and patient. She perfectly blended music information, performance and made the whole experience really enjoyable. Laurie came to my home and taught my two sons, 11 and 8 guitar and singing. We loved everything about our interaction and only stopped lessons because we moved. We've never found anyone close!!
