Teaching Testimonials


“Lauren is, hands down, the best teacher I’ve had as of now, and I’ve made significant progress under her.”

“A very hard-working and dedicated teacher.”

Lauren is an excellent teacher. After hearing me play for just one lesson, she knew exactly how to improve my playing.

“She challenges you with difficult music then guides you to play it better than you ever thought you could. In addition to that, she is an extremely kind and motivational person”

Teaching Philosophy

My primary goal of teaching music is to help my students develop a strong passion for music and guide them to become independent, creative thinkers and problem solvers.

This includes learning how to sacrifice and devote massive amounts of time for the pursuit to the craft, and the art of being patient and putting in daily work.

I make sure my students are instructed how to develop technique through daily exercises, with music that meets their technical demand.
