Overview

Hello! I am a skilled teacher with a passion for helping others learn and excel! I hold my bachelor's degrees in music education and vocal performance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I completed my master's degree in vocal performance from the University of North Texas. I have been teaching over 15 years. I tailor instruction to your need. I can help you become a stronger musician, be ready for performances and auditions, prepare for special occasions, competitions, recitals, concerts and more!

I am also very interested in nutrition and cooking. I have thus studied these areas and love to share this knowledge with others. I can help you with healthy eating, meal planning and understanding nutrients to maximize your nutrition. Cooking is endless....I can show you many, many types. Just ask!

Contact me with any questions or for information. I currently have good openings on Mondays and Tuesdays from 5:30-6:30PM and Thursdays 6:00-7:00PM. If you are interested in cooking, please send me a message. I am sometimes able to accommodate cooking lessons on Sundays given that they take longer. Thank you!

Laurie is a conscientious instructor. She is knowledgeable and gentle in her guidance. As an adult student, I like the fact that she allows me to take the lead in what I want to play.

My son has been taking lessons from Laurie for over a month and we have already experienced improvements. She is patient, as well as attentive to his needs and means of learning. I would and have recommended her to my friends and family.
