About this pro

With any lesson, the goal is mastering the material. A lesson with me gives you an understanding of how you learn, what tools to use in other aspects for yourself, and the individual attention of someone who appreciates the knowledge being shared.

Teaching is a profession I chose without knowing it would become my calling. Most of my family are educators or music performers; it only makes sense to combine the two and help other students achieve their goals. I still perform and occasionally take lessons myself to ensure a quality, well-rounded, and respectful learning experience.

  • Steve

    Lauren is extremely talented, intelligent, and has a great sense of humor. She has helped me achieve goals that I thought were unattainable.

  • Ruby Lindell

    I had a wonderful experience working with Lauren. She is quite knowledgeable and perceptive with music and vocal abilities. I started out with knowing very little about my range breath work, and after only a few sessions together I already felt more confident about my overall singing. I highly recommend "Music Lessons for All".

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First lesson is always free. There are too many scary stories of people being put off by a teacher not suited to the student. I work with my clients to get the best education and information to set them up for success.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I've been a professional musician for over twenty years, received multiple scholarships from colleges and universities, been in choirs and ensembles with award-winning directors, and taught myself piano at age 6. As far as non-musical lessons I provide, like acting, crafting, or life-coaching, these are all personal life experiences shared to improve the quality of life and help those who need a listening ear (pun intended). 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$20.00 for 30 minutes, $35.00 for 60 minutes, and the first lesson is always free.


How did you get started teaching?

I've always shared everything I learned with anyone who would listen, but it wasn't until I started teaching children alongside adults how different the learning process is for each person. Tutoring provides a better dynamic to absorb the information, as well as decipher how the individual processes the material.


What types of students have you worked with?

Almost all, with the exceptions being severe special needs, non-verbal, or hearing impaired. I am willing to teach anyone who is willing to learn and I will learn how to teach them.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I was recently referred to a new family whose daughters want to learn piano. The oldest was assigned a new piece of music and we're still working out a piece from Christmas. When we had our lesson yesterday, she was able to play each song, both hands, the new music only two weeks old.

They've only been clients for two months.

A crazy special story, a student came to me years ago asking to be taught how to play by ear. We had a frank discussion about how this isn't something one can necessarily learn.

We succeeded, three and a half years later, still working out the ear training, but he can now recognize when the changes occur and where they're going to go. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Be very picky. Listen to yourself or your kids about the teacher and how they affect you or your student. Have them demonstrate their primary instrument or provide you with evidence they understand the anatomical and physiological aspects of what they teach. These are things which will cause permanent damage if the instructor is unaware.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

None, you may ask the teacher anything to clarify your goals. You're searching for answers; ask the teacher. If you don't like the answers or the teacher, then you have your answer.
