When people I meet socially ask me what I do, of course I tell them "I teach piano", and the most common response is: "I took piano as a child, and I HATED it!"
They usually tell me "it wasn't fun", and this has always baffled me.
WHY? WHY wasn't it fun? WHY can it not be fun!
While I encourage my students to work hard towards short and long term goals we set together, I think to myself: there is no reason we can't have fun in the process.
In our studio, it IS fun. My students consistently achieve high honours in various festivals and exams, and, during their lessons, you will hear lots of laughter from outside the door. Humour is big for me, and yes, piano has all of its benefits academically and discipline wise, but in the end, we study the piano for the love of music, gifting ourselves with a skill that we will have for life.

Wonderful teacher. Amazing pianist and educator. You really see that she loves her students.
My daughter takes piano lessons with Lauren and I feel so fortunate to have her as her teacher. Lauren has inspired my daughter with a passion for music. She is teaching her that through dedication and practice she can achieve her goals. We are blessed to have found her.
Lauren is an accomplished pianist and excellent teacher. She is wonderful with kids and they look forward to their lessons! She is qualified, professional, experienced, and fun. Thank you for your hard work Lauren!
