to teach group lessons and lead ensembles. She believes that the key to music education is
fostering students’ love and excitement for music. Lauren always ensures that students have a

play music with others and gives them the tools needed to jam with others and join bands and
ensembles. Ultimately, Lauren strives to create a positive environment for students to learn new
