I teach piano from the perspective of a modern musician and songwriter. I want to make sure you are relaxed and having fun in our lessons and pursuing the style of music that resonates with you. While I do like to use traditional method books to teach note reading and theory at a gradual pace, I also like to break away from the classical and spend some time on the music you know and love from the radio. Through teaching chords and accompaniment styles, I can help you to quickly learn the songs you love without needing to read sheet music, empowering you to start playing on your own while we work our way through note reading and more difficult pieces together. Ultimately, if you goal is strictly classical or strictly to sing and play, we can shift our focus to give more time to the area that you are passionate about.
About Loralee W.

Loralee began exploring music at a very young age, as part of a musical household. She enrolled in flute lessons at the age of 4, giving her solid roots in music theory and an appreciation for classical music. Her flute lessons later led her to take part in marching band and numerous musical ensembles. Aside from her love of music, 15 years of performing and studying dance led her to discover her joy in teaching when she began to teach creative movement and ballet to young dancers. In college, she began learning guitar and writing music to match a growing passion for songwriting and acoustic folk music. Her musical pursuits led her to join a local alt punk band as a vocalist, and she performed with them in the surrounding area. After graduating with a B.A. at Michigan State University, Loralee began to pursue a career as a solo musician, and released a 4 song EP “If You Were a Song”. Now, she has written hundreds of songs and performs her original music in the Dallas area.

I'll be honest. I randomly chose an instructor for my 10 year old voice lessons. So pleased! She keeps in contact when there are issues with a lesson. Very flexible when it comes to platforms. Encourages and teaches my beginner in all the areas shes unfamiliar with. Super duper!

I felt very comfortable with Loralee. She got right down to business, so not to waste our time. She was complimentary, and flexible to help me achieve my individual goals.
