  Having 2 children of her own in piano and violin lessons has enlightened Laura as to what home practice really is for elementary and middle school students. Her teaching style has dramatically changed as she has learned how to make home practice and lessons even more fun by letting  kids make their own musical discoveries using their own natural curiosity.
