Laura is a wonder teacher. She goes at your speed and works from your level up. She is friendly, but great at keeping the lesson on track. She has so much experience and is really great and pointing out the tips that will help you the most at your skill level. I have had only 4 lessons so far, but even I can see improvement in my piano skills. Thanks so much, Laura, for your dedication and help.Feb 22, 2020Verified
Though we just started lessons with Laura, we can already tell she will be a great piano teacher for my 13 year old son. He was so excited after leaving the lesson that he wanted to start practicing right away. Laura has a way of understanding each child's needs and making it a fun and enjoyable experience. We can't wait to see what our son can do after a couple of months!Aug 30, 2019Verified
Very quick to respond, and she's respectful of current COVID guidelines, and really knows her craft. I look forward to working with her in the future!Aug 20, 2020Verified
She is the best piano teacher we could find and worth the price. We are trying to help a young talent blossom in our 4-year old piano daughter and wanted to find the bestJun 6, 2019Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Piano/cello lessons are more than just a student's reserved lesson time each week! It includes your teacher's education,experience, and ongoing professional development which directly impacts success. Each student receives an individualized teaching plan with yearly goals, use of music library, recitals, incentives, piano parties , masterclass, summer camps etc. Lessons for school aged students are invoiced in equal monthly tuition payments and pricing depends on what type of lessons are taken. See website studio policy/ tuition for more details. Adult students purchase a 4 lesson package and use the lessons in their time frame.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to have prospective students view my website and schedule a complimentary "meet and greet" lesson. This gives all of us an opportunity to learn some about each other and see if the studio is a good fit before making a commitment to lessons.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Bachelor of Music in Piano Pedagogy from Utah State University. 20+ years experience teaching beginners to performance majors in college. Classically trained cellist. Currently principal cellist of the Utah Philharmonic Orchestra Classically trained pianist along with playing on a worship team, composing, accompanying, and teaching in a classroom.
