Born in Pleasantville, New York, Lauren was born into a musical family and began playing classical piano at the age of five. Captivated by her passion for music, 12-year-old Lauren decided she wanted to learn how to play guitar. Throughout middle school and high school, she could be found learning whatever song was stuck in her head that week. She has explored a wide variety genres on guitar such as jazz, rock, pop, and country. Lauren also showed promise as a young singer. She went on to attend the Master’s School, studying vocal arts and performing whenever she had the chance. Afterwards, she headed to Frost School of Music, where she sang with the prestigious Jazz Vocal I Ensemble, even earning a Downbeat Award! She graduated in 2018 with a bachelor’s degree in Music Business and a minor in Songwriting.
As a songwriter, she has never shied away from genre experimentation. In 2017, she released a four-song Jazz EP, only to be followed up by a country-folk EP. Her original jazz standard led her to be a finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. Since moving to Los Angeles in January 2019, Lauren has written with a wide range of songwriters and is actively pursuing music. In addition to working on her solo project, Lauren supports other artists with her instrumental (bass, keys, guitar) and vocal versatility.
Lauren’s goal is to encourage students to follow their passion. She wants them to love what they’re learning. She is thrilled to share her knowledge of songwriting, piano, guitar, and voice through all different genres.
