I believe everyone benefits from music lessons with the primary goal being to have fun with it! If you're not having fun, why do it? I use methods and materials uniquely tailored to each student's learning style and interests. I cover all aspects of music: history, theory, repertoire, technic, artistry, composition, etc.
I love sharing music with my students to achieve their individual goals. I encourage competition only with yourself and not others -- building on foundations and seeking continued growth and skill level.
My daughter has loved learning to play piano from Laurie! She has learned so much and excelled over the couple years of lessons she's had with Laurie!
I've been taking lessons with Laurie Helmers for over ten years now. She is like a grandmother to me at this point. She is a fantastic piano teacher, and I have learned a lot from her skillwise and also in the theory area as well. She strives for excellence and is truly devoted to her students. I love piano and the way I have grown up with it.
