Laura is the founder of The Music Academy, and has been teaching music since 2015. She completed her Bachelor of Music majoring as a vocalist, and has been playing flute since 1999 and guitar since 2007. She now works as a teacher and a professional musician, performing as a singer and guitarist (and sometimes with a bit of ukulele).
As well as teaching all of these instruments individually, Laura also teaches singing with an accompanying instrument. If you'd like to be able to sing and accompany yourself on the guitar or ukulele at the same time, Laura can show you how!
