I have recently relocated to South Berwick, Maine, and am accepting new students (ages 8 and up) for private lessons in my home starting in September 2016. Contact me for further info.

Until I moved I was teaching at Acme Hall Studios in Park Slope, Brooklyn, fostering a new crop of riot-grrls of all ages and genders. My focus is on nurturing my students' enthusiasm for music by sharing my passion, and cultivating fundamental skills with music they really connect with.

Self-taught, and steeped in the DIY punk aesthetic from the beginning, Laura has a unique perspective as a teacher. Her students learn fundamentals of course, but also acquire a more invaluable skill: to trust themselves and follow their instincts. Laura takes her students seriously, no matter their age or level, and her warm, down-to-earth personality allows them to flourish in a non-judgmental environment. Besides all of this, Laura is a kick-ass drummer and an inspiration to watch on stage.
