She’s been a student at the Music School for the last seven years and has been studying piano with Terry Barton, for the last six years.


“Lauren takes everything I tell her to heart”, commented Lauren’s piano teacher Terry Barton. “She has made so much progress reading music and works very hard for every achievement.”


When asked why she chose the piano, Lauren stated, “I needed structure in my schedule, and I thought practicing piano would help. I like how the piano can create a lot of different sounds. Playing has helped me get out of my comfort zone, especially with recitals!”
