I am a very experienced and well qualified piano teacher, please refer to my website for details at https://lbpiano.wordpress.com. I can teach in English or French, using either the letter name or the do re mi system of notes.
I have a passion for the piano and love to share it with students of all ages and levels. I adapt my teaching style to meet the individual needs of each student. I try make it fun while ensuring my students learn to read music and become independent musicians in their own right.
Nicely balances teaching technique and piano pieces.
Laurence was always patient and she dramatically improved my style of playing. I am an adult learner and she was flexible in teaching what interested me versus following a set protocol. I plan to continue lessons with her when I am again able to do so.
Clear feedback, well-structured lessons, always excited to teach new theory or technique
Laurence taught me everything I know about the piano. I started from zero at a young age and I am now an advanced pianist who has held my own recitals and played with an orchestra. Her disciplined yet warm approach enabled me to keep progressing throughout all of these years. I highly recommend her for students at all levels.

All ages (5 to 75) and levels (beginner to ABRSM grade 8 and beyond).
I regularly perform in chamber music concerts with the Arte Piano Quartet.
Look for a degree in music, preferably including piano teaching or performance. Membership in MTAC is a plus (Music Teachers Association of California).
What goals do you have? What sort if music do you want to play? How much time do you have to practice? Do you want to do exams such as ABRSM or piano competitions? Or is it just for pleasure?
