I've been musically inclined since the young age of 2. I have a complete music room equipped with instruments, baby grand, and a two-staff white board for learning that I teach from.
I will meet and beat any competitor's 30-minute lesson rate if my rate is not already the lowest around. I prefer beginners age 6 to 14, but I negotiate on age. For advanced music theory, I will teach any age.
Let me formally introduce myself to you to show you my qualifications. I'm Laurie Walsh, and I have been singing multi-part music for 14 years and playing violin for 13 years, cello for 8 years, flute/piccolo for 5 years, and piano for 9 years, and I am currently picking up the harp. I have traveled the country competing on my violin and with my voice. I was asked personally to play at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and for the Emperor of China in 2006.
I act and sing professionally for my college, and I have received many casting calls for leading female parts in Broadway musicals, such as Wicked, Cirque Du Soile, Side Show, Once Upon a Mattress, Glee, and many more. For my young age, I have accomplished a lot, and I plan to teach music for the rest of my life not only at home as my hobby, but also as a university teacher, along with continuing my acting career on center stage.
I can promise you that your child will begin to read music clearly within the first 4 weeks that they are enrolled with me. Teaching music is a God given talent I have received, and I would love nothing more than to share it with your children, so they can experience it, too. Parents are welcome to stay with the child during the lesson; there is also the Lakewood town center right down the road if you prefer your child to be independent.
I offer the following:
- Private 30-minute lesson is $20 per child.
- Group (2-5) 30-minute lesson is $15 per child.
- Private 60-minute lesson is $30 per child.
- Group (2-5) 60-minute lesson is $25 per child.
Discount information is found below.
I offer lessons on the following:
- Music theory
- Advanced music theory
I will be offering harp lessons once I have learned my way thoroughly around the harp.
I also offer a 10% discount on the price of lesson if paid at least four lessons in advance.
Unlike most private teachers, I incorporate music theory into the lesson free of charge. Music theory teaches a child about the music staff and the notes that fall on it, and I feel that learning the basic concepts of music theory will be the foundation on great musical success for them.
