Piano Viola & Violin Teacher - Laura L

Hello! Welcome to music lessons with Miss Laura! Although I dabbled with teaching a little bit throughout high school and college to make some side income, I began professionally teaching full-time in November of 2015. I started piano lessons myself at age 5, and added violin as well at age 9. Throughout middle and high school, I worked for a musical theater company, playing violin in the symphony pit. I attended Chapman University and graduated with a B.A. in Music and a minor in Education. From 2015-2017 I had the amazing opportunity to perform violin in Disneyland as part of Olaf's Snowfest. It is an experience I will truly never forget!I teach students as young as 5 years old, all the way to adult age students (all ages are fun to teach!). My love for music and teaching was instilled in me by my own private music teachers, and I hope to inspire my students to love music as well!
