Lauren is a teacher based out of Oregon. Introduced to a love of music by her mother, she started learning piano around the age of 9. As early as high school, Lauren began teaching piano lessons to students of all ages and levels which sparked an interest in teaching in general. Though she studied piano for a time in college, she eventually decided to pursue a more general teaching degree to allow her to also teach other subjects she loved, like science and visual arts. After achieving a degree in Elementary Education, she went on to become a teacher for several outdoor schools across the country and eventually moved on to managing one here in Oregon. This experience has given her a passion for finding a student's individual learning style and lifelong learning.
