Kristi G: "We have taken lessons with Laura as a family now for almost 5 years (Dad, Mom, Ian -12.) We enjoy taking lessons with her. We appreciate her patience and teaching style that has helped us grow musically. My son has been able to audition and get into the Jefferson County Honor Orchestra 3 years now and the Front Range Youth Symphony because of the ability Laura has fostered in him. Her studio gives about 4 recitals a year, which makes students prepare and perform pieces in front of an audience which is fantastic!"
I graduated with a music degree from University of Denver.I have been teaching violin and viola lessons in the Denver area for over 20 years. I am active in a number of music groups in the area.
I work with a wide variety of violin and viola students - different ages, different levels, different goals. I am able to make lessons enjoyable, positive and productive. I am trained and experienced in Suzuki Violin Method, traditional teaching of violin and viola, and the American Violin Method.
Irene G: "Laura is an extremely patient and greatly experienced teacher. She sets expectations accordingly, so that you know as a parent what needs to be done to accelerate, improve techniques, and support your child. She is encouraging to her students with positive reinforcement, highlighting what they did right, and pointing out what needs to be done for improvement. We look forward to seeing her every week!
