With 10+ years of professional teaching experience with students ranging from beginners through adult amateurs to college students and professionals, Lauren focuses on each student, adapting lessons and goals to the individual’s personal needs. Her philosophy is based on the teachings of Arnold Jacobs and Jan Kagarice, encouraging each student to not only develop strong technique and accuracy, but also move beyond the physical approach to playing and delve into true music-making and innate expression.
In the past years, Lauren’s students have auditioned for and won spots in the Minnesota All State bands as well as Minnesota Youth Symphony, Greater Twin Cities Youth Symphonies, and Minnesota Junior Winds. Former students of hers study music at prestigious institutions such as the University of Iowa and UW-Eau Claire. She encourages performances and recitals whenever possible, but also loves working with students just on the joy of learning a skill and making music.
