Studies

Laura began playing piano at an early age, encouraged by her musical family. She attended University of Arizona with a focus on music and studied piano performance under modern composer Robert Mucynski. She later studied privately with Lillian Smith, professor at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Her love for performing blossomed under Lillian's encouragement.

Beginning in 1988 Laura began studying privately with Phillip Lorenz, Professor of Piano at California State University, Fresno, and founder of the International Keyboard Concerts. Philip revolutionized Laura’s playing to one of strength and encouraged her to offer a program of romantic and sacred classics. This encouragement lead to the creation of her first album, Keyboards From Heaven, a 60-minute album of classical, sacred, and original piano works, including Clair De Lune, Moonlight Sonata, Rachmaninoff's theme of Paganini, and more, in an airy and ethereal style.

In 2012 Laura opened Allegro Piano School in Clovis, California, teaching with the Musical Moments “Way Cool” Keyboarding curriculum.
