About this pro

Welcome to The Val Larsen Music Studio! I offer private online lessons in Voice | Piano | Guitar | Ukulele | Harp | Music Theory & Songwriting I have a conservatory education and have made my living solely with art and music for the last decade.  My goal as a teacher is to give my students the fundamental tools they would need to pursue music as a profession or as a hobby. I believe that lessons should be hard work, but also inspire a love for music and performing, and most of all be FUN! I strive to build an environment that reaches for excellence through self-discipline and determination, while being kind and encouraging with my students. What are you looking for in a teacher? What are you specifically hoping to learn? I'm always trying to expand my skillset to meet my students' needs.

Seeing people progress and gain confidence through their work :)

    I’ve had three of my children working with Val and they have loved it! Each has developed in their skill in beautiful ways whether in voice, guitar or harp. I couldn’t recommend Val more, she’s wonderful!

  • Elizabeth Mitton

    Val is a great music teacher. She has been teaching 3 of my granddaughters (voice, guitar, harp). Val is always prepared and encouraging. These students are progressing and enjoying their music. I recommend Val as a highly qualified music teacher that really cares about inspiring her students and giving them the tools to improve their musical confidence and ability.

    Val is great at what she does! I started singing lessons with her over zoom - and was a bit worried about how it would go - but she was very professional, had a comprehensive onboarding process, but was still flexible and met my personal needs. She’s an amazing teacher, a lovely person, and I credibly talented :)

    Totally worth our time and money. Val is awesome!
