Lesson

Studio

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. 

Bella, Student

I began  lessons with Lora almost 6 months ago and have greatly enjoyed my time working with her. 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

Meghan, Educator

Lora is a positive force in the music community. Her knowledge of various genres allows her to teach from the persepective of a trained and active performer. She consistently seeks ways to modify musical material so that it's accesible to students of varying abilities.

Tiger, Educator

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 oversome hesitant singing.

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 and 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. Aside from being a great teacher she is also an outstanding person. Being only a year younger than Lora we have a unique relationship as we are also peers. Having been in class with Lora it is plain to see that she puts hard work and dedication into every aspect of her musical education. She takes what she learns and uses it to help her students. Working with Lora and knowing her has been an absolute pleasure, I would recommend her to vocalists of any level.

Larry, Educator

Lora is not only a phenomenal performer but also an amazing teacher. Her performing experience (gigging as a band leader for her jazz quartet, big band guest vocalist, backup vocalist, studio work, etc.) is extensive, and really gives her the edge that other educators lack to be as helpful as possible for developing students. Her understanding of the instrument has really 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. You can’t go wrong with Lora Sherrodd. Apart from already being at the top of her game, 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.
