I love singing and creating music and I want to share my love for music with my community. I want my students to love their instrument as much as I do and that's why I strive to create a customized learning environment for each of my students so that they will get the most out of lessons as well as having fun. I strive to ensure that my students are enjoying themselves, enjoying the music they’re creating, all while being pushed to try new things.

Lora is extremely talented and knowledgeable. She has spent years learning and practicing her jazz technique and it shows. Lora is one of my favorite instructors because when you ask her why she assigns a certain thing there is always an answer and it is never “because I said so”. She always takes the time to explain exercises and how they will help the student improve.

I have greatly enjoyed my time working with Lora. I have been impressed by the creativity with which she teaches, which keeps the lessons challenging and interesting. I also cannot stress enough how much I appreciate her ability to provide just the right amount of support. I feel as if I am growing as a musician and have the tools I need to independently practice/perform

I really enjoy my voice lessons with Lora. I've been taking lessons for only a short time and have learned so much. She is very supportive and enthusiastic and her passion for what she does shows in her teaching. I look forward to my lesson every week!
Lora’s understanding of the instrument has taken her very far in terms of vocal ability as well as within the professional world of teaching. I have seen her students, and her ability to connect with students professionally while making them feel comfortable, and develop a very organized and specific lesson for each student is astounding. She continues to grow herself, and that’s an important trait to have as a teacher, because when one continues to develop their craft, they stay excited and playful with what they’re teaching.
Lora embodies an approach to education every artist should have . She is very well adapted to collaboration and performing in a variety of settings. For example, I routinely ask her to speak to my aural theory classes about how to overcome hesitant singing.
Lora is a positive force in the music community. Her knowledge of various genres allows her to teach from the perspective of a trained and active performer. She consistently seeks ways to modify musical material so that it's accessible to students of varying abilities.
