Get to know Laura S

Hello! My name is Laura and I am the Store Manager at the Westminster Music & Arts! Music has always been my biggest passion. I remember when I got my first tape player with a couple Bee Gees and Beach Boys tapes to play on it. Since then music has been my lifeblood.

I absolutely LOVE heavy metal and almost everything from the 1980s. My favorite bands of all time are Judas Priest, Motley Crue, and Enforcer. Anything beyond that needs to broken up into genres and decades because there are simply too many killer bands!

Reading is another blissful past time that fills my heart. I love Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth series, the Harry Potter books, The Witcher series by Andrzej Sapkowski, Lord of the Rings, the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, among many others. Like 80s tunes and bands, there are too many wonderful books to mention!

My journey with Musc & Arts started when I was in the sixth grade and my parents rented a flute for me. In high school I moved on to the Arapahoe High School color guard and after a year of that I ended up falling in love with the electric bass (big thanks to Duff McKagan for that). I had to pick between the two and the bass won out. I took lessons at the Englewood location for about three years before going to Seattle, WA for college.

I had a ten year hiatous from playing music and in its place I attended as concerts as much as I could. When I joined the Westminster team in January of 2020 I couldn't let myself be the only person who didn't actively play an instrument. I got myself set up with a Fender P Bass, an Ampeg amp, and started getting back into the swing of playing again. I currently take lessons with our guitar/bass/ukulele instructor Craig (who is killer!). I can't express how happy I am to have this aspect of music back in my life.

Feel free to give me a call at the store or come on down and say hello!
