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.

It was only our first lesson together but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Loralee made the experience relaxing and fun. More than just learning the notes, Loralee teaches you to express the emotion and passion in a song that comes out so beautifully in a guitar. Wonderful guitar teacher. 5 stars

Loralee is a great instructor for any age! I'm 43 and she's incredibly patient, supportive, and good at moving you along according to your natural learning style. Looking forward to more learning.

She does a great job at teaching you at the level you are at. Either advancing quickly, or going slowly depending on the individual needs of the students. She has different techniques in order to develope the guitarist as a whole with finger picking, strumming, and learning songs. She is wonderful to work with!

This was my 3rd lesson with Loralee and I really enjoy her "get to it" attitude. She is always well prepared and has many exercises to work through together. She doesn't waste any time. I feel she understood what I needed early on with little guidance from me. She's pleasant and enjoyable to work with. Looking forward to my next lesson.
