Private lessons in Austin, TX or online

Lauren is currently a private low brass instructor around the greater Austin area. She teaches beginning through collegiate students, and works individually with them to create a personalized curriculum that can set them up for success. 

Having previously taught as a full time lesson teacher in the Santa Clara County, CA, she has worked with a wide range of students and skill levels, and many students have made it into the Santa Clara County Honor Band and California All-State Ensembles. 

She firmly believes that private lessons are the key the a students consistent progress in a band program, and takes that role as a serious and meaningful task. She prioritizes musical literacy, ear training, and a great emphasis on technical ability to be able to make music at the highest level. She also trains all of her students to think critically during their practice and cultivate the skills of problem solving, prioritizing, and achieving small daily goals.

Teaching Testimonials


“Lauren is an outstanding instructor. She is very passionate about music teaching and performance. Some of the things I appreciate about her are her great communication skills, patience, encouragement, and a real desire to help her students excel in music. My son said she was always very positive, helped give him focused practice methods and instruction and, most importantly, inspired him to take his performance to the next level. I would highly recommend Lauren!”   -Carol, 2019

Under Lauren's guidance and instruction, our high school age son showed significant progress within 1 year of private instruction with Lauren.  His tone and vibrato was developed with noticeable improvement. He always came home after the lesson motivated and in good spirits.  She is a quick and efficient communicator and always has her students best interest as a priority.  We will miss her as she completes her education in another state.”​ - Jason, 2019

“Lauren Casey-Clyde is an excellent teacher and musician. She not only helps you with technique but shaping and phrasing as well, which sets you apart from the average musician. 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. I would highly recommend her to any euphonium or trombone players out there.”       - Sayaka, 2019

"Lauren is an excellent teacher. After hearing me play for just one lesson, she knew exactly how to improve my playing. Her excellent understanding of the fundamentals and involved teaching method really propelled me as a player forward in a short amount of time. Lauren would make an excellent teacher for any prospective low brass player." - Tyler, 2019

My son Daniel has been learning Euphonium from Miss Lauren since the beginning of this school year and, not only has made great progress, but also is enthusiastic about the instrument and music as a whole, proof that Miss Lauren is a tremendously talented instructor and her love of music shows in the results.  Started as a reluctant trumpet player, Daniel is now looking forward to joining the advance band and continuing with Euphounium. To us, the importance of leading kids into the wonderful world of fine arts is as much as that of teaching the skills, if not more.  And for that, Miss Lauren has exceeded our expectations far beyond imaginations.” - Song, 2019

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

-Luke, 2019
