Lauren is currently finishing her bachelor’s degree in music at Southern Methodist University where she is studying with Camille King. She has been a music student for most of her life starting at age 4. Lauren is part of the Meadows Opera Ensemble and has appeared in many productions including Alcina, Our Town, Cosi Fan Tutte, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, and a touring production of Broadway Anthems for the SMU-in-Taos Cultural Institute. In addition to her classical voice training, Lauren is passionate about musical theater and currently studies with Natalie Weiss from New York City.
Lauren has shared her passion for teaching with others since she was 11. She has served in leadership positions with gymnastics teams, dance teams, and choral groups where she was tasked with mentoring and teaching less experienced participants. Lauren has also been fortunate to serve as a teaching assistant at a Montessori school where she worked with students in the classroom and music program. She has also been involved in the creative and choreography process teaching high school spirit squads and dance teams.
Lauren has an upbeat, positive personality and loves to share that positivity with her students. She believes music lessons should be fun and foster a love and appreciation for music. She expects her students to practice regularly but is not harsh with students when this expectation isn’t met. Her number one goal is to make sure her students are enjoying every lesson and their own practice time.

Lauren is very disciplined. Fine young musician. Talented singer/dancer. I have enjoyed working with Lauren very much.Virginia Dupuy, Prof. of Voice. SMU
Lauren believes if a student can learn classical voice and piano technique, they can sing or play anything. With voice, Lauren emphasizes the importance of learning to sing in a very healthy, sustainable way. Her classical background also transfers over to musical theater and pop music. Furthermore, because she has a strong dance background, Lauren takes a very physical approach to music and stresses the importance of connecting with the body when singing and playing.
