Lessons By Laura



I have been a music instructor for over 25 years, teaching, Piano, violin, and other instruments. I have a bachelors degree from San Diego State in music. Together with basic technical skills, I teach student theory. This provides a well-rounded knowledge of music.

My passion for music began when I was five years old and asked for piano lessons. Since then, I have been involved in many musical groups, including marching band, choir, and San Diego State Symphony Orchestra. My goal is to share my musical knowledge and experience with students of all ages and abilities.
