About Lara, The Leading Online Sight-Reading CoachIf you want one word, it’d be passion. I have passion for people, passion for playing the piano, and passion for teaching. I believe that music is a gift from our God and aim to bring out the natural aspects of music that already exist in our hearts. By focusing on what inspires us to play music rather than on man-made rules, anyone can learn how to play the piano.Learn More
What Others Are Saying
Ms. Lara is the best teacher I’ve ever had! I started learning piano with her at 16 and I’ll be 18 soon so she’s been teaching me for a long while. Now I’m able to sight read professional music and play some hard songs by heart. She has made me really comfortable to be around her and I would say that she isn’t just my teacher but she is now my friend. Thank you so much Ms. Lara!
Lara’s love for the piano and her resulting passion show through in every aspect of her teaching. I’m a crusty old guy who can play some piano but who’s always wanted to learn to play right. Lara took me to a child’s beginning stepped, and like a drill sergeant was merciless in getting me to break my old habits and learn it right, withstanding my whining with the patience of a saint. When breakthroughs came, she cheered me on, and moved to the next step, bit by bit. She is a master of the instrument, and unlike many masters, knows how to teach. One could not ask for a better teacher.
Lara is an incredible piano teacher with an effective and intuitive approach to her musical training. She focuses on the basics that unfortunately most music teachers neglect, but also caters to your own personal goals and ambitions in learning the piano. If you’re looking to learn how to play the piano but might be intimidated by inexperience, or if you want your child to begin a musical career on the right foot, I can attest Lara is the one to help with either endeavor. I will admit that I was initially skeptical about her higher prices, but after witnessing firsthand the advantages of her method, I know her lessons are without doubt worth the price.
Lara has taught my daughter how to sight-read music within two months. The way in which she teaches sight-reading is incredible and I can totally see the benefits of starting Zoe with this approach. My daughter really feels like Lara is her friend and makes her comfortable even while encouraging her to learn harder material. Watching Zoe get up, compose herself and perform at the recital in front of 50–75 made us proud parents. All I can say is that Lara is a professional musician who has graced us with her time and energy by teaching Zoe how to play the piano. She is always punctual, reliable and can’t leave out—a GREAT pianist. Thanks Lara!
Ms. Lara is one of, if not the greatest piano teacher ever! She is nice, calm, understanding and very encouraging. I am so happy to have met Ms. Lara not only as a piano teacher but also as a person in general.
I am really impressed with how she tailors each lesson to the abilities of both of my teen individually. She has taught them to sight read and they have continued to progress at a fast pace. They were able to participate in a recital and felt confident about their progress. She is very professional in her approach, but friendly. They also have fun while learning and enjoy how she helps them celebrate their successes. She is an amazing instructor and I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Lara came highly recommended to us from a good friend. Our experience with her has been great! She is very talented, patient and knows how to relate the material to our daughter in a way that’s appropriate for her age. Most importantly, our daughter loves her and is eager to learn because of Lara’s professional yet nurturing manner.
Lara is a wonderful piano teacher that takes her time with her students. Lara was very patient and knew exactly what I needed on my very first session. She is currently guiding me through the piece, “Two Minuets” by Mozart and I am surprised that I am able to read and play the notes. I could not imagine myself playing the piano four month ago. However, here I am today getting ready for my first piano recital. I couldn’t see myself training with any other piano teacher other than Lara. She is one of a kind and she truly cares about her students. If you are looking for a piano teacher who is dedicated and experienced, see Lara. You will not be disappointed.
Lara is always energetic and encouraging. She absolutely makes the most out of every minute of our time together. Lessons are well-balanced.
The method that Lara uses worked the best for me. I am learning music theory and am able to read music better than I believe I would if I had selected another teacher.
