Laura's approach to singing is wonderful (she doesn't only teach you how to sound good but also how to act through songs) and it's really important especially if you are pursuing musical theatre. Not only that, I had so much fun during her lessons!

"She really helped me find my voice, and she gave me practical things to work on. [She shared] working knowledge that I can take with me to any audition."

Laura has been a pianist/singer/actor for over two decades.

Using her unique interdisciplinary approach to teaching, she has trained hundreds of students to become accomplished pianists, singers, and actors (and sometimes all three!)
who have performed on/off Broadway, at Carnegie Hall, on regional stages, and on TV. 


As a pianist, Laura has performed in LA/NY, Japan, Austria, and Russia from a young age.
As an actor, she has traveled the world with the Broadway tour of Avenue Q and is active in LA and NYC,
filming indie projects and co-creating/performing in shows off-Broadway.

Laura's lessons are fun, high-energy, and tailored to meet every student's goals,

whether to become a concert pianist, Broadway star, or living room diva (or divo)! 

Students are guaranteed to enjoy the journey as they take significant steps toward becoming the best they can be.


As a proud member of the Music Teachers' Association of California,

Laura prepares students to excel at recitals, competitions, and exams.
