Laura has taught cello privately for over 6 years.
Teaching Philosophy: Lessons will focus on the development of skill in playing the cello or piano; not just learning the concepts of the music but putting them into action. With a strong fundamental background (scales, etudes, exercises, and repertoire), students will be able to develop their own voice through melodies and harmonies and learn to express themselves in a thoughtful way. Students will get comfortable with a wide variety of styles and eras of music, as a well-rounded musician is a well-rounded person.
