Retro Microphone


Thanks for stopping by. I'm so happy you're here! 

Connecting with people is one of my favorite parts of making music. Through traveling, performing, creating, and teaching, I have found community and friendship all over the world.

Listeners who find magic, joy, catharsis, and more in my music. Fine musicians who share their talent. Composers who create works that inspire me. Teachers who invite me into their classrooms. Families who open their homes and hearts. Children and adults who join me to grow in their own artistry.

Planning Travels

While we're here, we can all experience connection, beauty, craft, and the joy and work of the journey.

Please enjoy my music, send me a note (I love friends I haven't met yet), or come create with me!

Let's make something marvelous together, shall we?

                                               — Lauren

Sono convinto che l'arte debba essere un atto d'amore.

I am convinced that art must be an act of love.

— Gian Carlo Menotti

Current Projects

You're invited! We're celebrating Chloe Yelena Miller's debut poetry collection on February 20, 2:00 pm EST. Join us online for poetry reading, music from Baby Book (from 6 soprano / pianist teams!), and a chat with the author, composer, and performers. More info here.

In collaboration with Claire Allen (Washington D.C.), I am writing new works with and for her intermediate students in her modified Suzuki studio. I hope these will be played by many students (especially as we teach more online!)
