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.
