About LP MUSIC TUITION

Hey there! I’m Laura – a pianist, singer, community music practitioner, and founder of LP Music Tuition. I’ve always had a passion for teaching, and after reaching full capacity with private lessons, I knew it was time to expand my love for teaching into a music school. At LP Music Tuition, our main goal is simple: to provide fun, engaging, and inspiring music tuition for everyone. We believe in creating a warm and inclusive environment where individuals of all abilities, including neurotypical and neurodivergent learners, can thrive. Whether you’re an adult or a child, we’re here to support you on your musical journey.

 

What sets us apart?

Well, we’re not just passionate about teaching, we’re also committed to tailoring our lessons to meet the individual needs of each learner. While we follow a uniquely designed curriculum, we understand that every individual has their own strengths and learning styles. That’s why we take the time to get to know you, your strengths, and how you learn best. We want to build your confidence and help you achieve your musical goals. During your first lesson at LP Music Tuition, we not only teach but also gather information to create a tailored learning plan that will build confidence and bring out your full musical potential. On our homepage you will find inspiring success stories and testimonials from our wonderful students who have experienced the positive impact of LP Music Tuition.

Now, let’s talk about the music genres we cover. If you’re interested in piano, we’ve got you covered! We offer lessons in classical, pop, rock, and jazz. And for all you aspiring singers out there, we’ve got a wide range of styles to explore, including classical, pop, musical theatre, country, jazz, and more. We’re here to help you find your musical voice and express yourself through music.

But wait, there’s more! We’re dedicated to supporting your musical development beyond the lessons. If you find independent practice a tedious challenge, worry not, we can keep in contact in between lessons through a practice app, which keeps you engaged, motivated and on track outside of our sessions. We also offer booster classes in music theory to strengthen your understanding. Plus, we provide regular performance opportunities and creative ensemble workshops, so you can showcase your talent and connect with fellow musicians.

So, why wait? Join us at LP Music Tuition and let’s embark on a musical adventure together. Unleash your potential, nurture your talent, and experience the joy of making music. Get in touch today to book your first lesson – We can’t wait to meet you!

Laura’s Biography

Laura studied classical piano under the tutelage of world-renowned pianist, musicologist and lecturer, Beryl Chempin at her home in Moseley, Birmingham (in conjunction with the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire). During her studies, Laura achieved high distinctions in Grades 1-8 ABRSM piano, including the highest mark in the UK for her grade 8 piano examination, and proceeded to study music further at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and Abbey College after being awarded scholarships. Laura began performing as a solo pianist in her teen years under Beryl’s direction and played numerous recitals and competitions including famous works by Beethoven, Brahms, Rachmaninoff, Chopin and many more.

Alongside the piano, Laura studied classical singing with Andrea Calladine and Alison Stevens and achieved grades 1-8 ABRSM. Laura’s singing performing career began at the young age of three where she sang with the Bournville Children’s Choir, as well as the CBSO Children’s and Senior Youth Choruses, and the National Youth Choir of Great Britain. Laura regularly participated in music festivals, including the International Eisteddfod, in Llangollen (Wales).

Much valuable experience was gained from this early exposure, including many tours around Europe, performing in some of the most prestigious venues around the world, including The BBC Proms at The Royal Albert Hall in London, The Blue Peter Proms at The Royal Festival Hall in London, the opening ceremony for the Commonwealth Games at the Bridgwater Hall in Manchester, The Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, and many more, and Laura has had the privilege of working with some of the world’s best artists.

Laura studied BA Music for Education and Community Practice at the University of Wolverhampton, achieving a first class honours degree and being awarded the Worfield Charity Concert Prize for the highest degree classification in her cohort. Laura continues to study at a postgraduate level in the field of Educational Psychology.

A keen teacher too, Laura has continued putting her knowledge, skills and experience to good use over the past two decades through private tutoring, music curriculum teaching and accompanying musical events for schools and private individuals in her home county, Worcestershire. Laura has a specialism and passion for working with children and young people with special educational needs (SEN) and has developed a bank of effective teaching and learning strategies to support inclusive practice.
