​​"Lauren has been providing piano lessons to me (a 50 something young lady) since 2011. I started lessons with no experience with reading music or playing any instrument at all. She is patient and accommodated me based on my goals. She would review the music I was interested in and adjust the notes based on my experience level. One of the first songs Lauren guided me through was 'Someone Like You' by Adele and I was so very excited and proud. My most memorable accomplishment was learning to play 'Songbird' by Fleetwood Mac. A song that took a year to perfect for a very special event in my life. It was so difficult and I didn't think I'd get to a point of mastering it but I certainly did with Lauren's guidance and constant support! I played this song on the keyboard with Lauren on guitar and vocals as a surprise for my husband at our 25th wedding anniversary party with 100+ family and friends. He was very touched and I couldn't have done it without Lauren!  Lauren is so very talented and her teaching ability, patience and sense of humor at lesson times are huge assets!  I will miss Lauren when she moves to Nashville and not sure I will be able to find another instructor with her characteristics that I love!" ~ Sandi Coffett 

"Lauren has been giving my daughter vocal and guitar lessons for several years. She is reliable, kind, and patient. I would highly recommend her. We are so sorry to see her leave Kansas City." ~ Amanda H.

Lauren has taught 1 on 1 vocal, guitar (beginner), piano and mandolin  (beginner) lessons for 6+ years now.

She was classically trained, but approaches teaching with a "student first" method, where she adapts her lessons to incorporate student interests, while teaching theory and the necessary basics. She also teaches at a pace that is comfortable with each individual student. She has experience working with a wide variety of ages, as well as students with special needs.
