About Laura

Violin Lessons for All Levels:

Whether just starting out on the violin or seeking to improve musicality or performance, I am able to coach all levels. I am a very patient and understanding instructor (I used to be a student too!), and I want to ensure that learning music is first and foremost an enriching and fun experience. I can accommodate all violin styles, including classical, fiddle, folk, etc.

I excel at teaching students with special needs, and have been able to improve both confidence and performance in past students. I have a very patient and accommodating teaching style, and can help a school-age student in addition to their school orchestra teacher.

About Me
Originally from Nebraska, I have studied classical violin since the age of 3, utilizing the Suzuki method. I have a minor in violin performance from Colorado State University, where I participated in both the Symphony and Chamber orchestras.

However, there is more to me than music. I recently completed my International MBA from University of Denver, with a concentration in Environmental Policy. I have worked in the environmental/energy sector in Colorado and Nebraska. I speak Mandarin at the intermediate level and Russian at the beginner level. My hobbies include traveling (China, Mongolia, Japan, and England so far), running, walking my dogs, and reading.
