About Laurie P.

I am a professional trombonist and pianist and have three degrees from the University of Michigan, including a D.M.A. in Trombone Performance. I have taught piano since I was 16 and have accompanied singers and instrumentalists in concerts. For many years, I was a trombonist in the Sarasota Orchestra and previously was Assistant Professor of Trombone at Miami University.

I have started many students on trombone and tuba, as well as piano.
Students will find me to be encouraging, yet demanding. I cater to different learning styles and strive to learn how each student learns best.

Laurie was an excellent teacher for my middle-school tuba player. She was very patient and encouraging. She was very knowledgeable on the details of playing the instrument.

I loved my first lesson with Laurie! She taught me more in one hour than I could have imagined - and in a sweet and caring way!
