My name is Laura Cragun and I LOVE the violin! I am excited to start teaching again!
Let me tell you about my violin and I. I have been playing the violin for 15 years, ever since elementary school in Arizona, where I am from originally. When I got more serious in high school, I was the concert master for a year, travel to many competitions and played in 5 concerts a year. I started teaching violin in high school with just a couple of students and continued to teach through college. Collectively, I have been teaching for 3-4 years. I have taken private lessons myself, both when I was younger and at BYU. I have recently gotten my minor in music at BYU where I was in the BYU Symphony for a year, participated in a fiddling class and other demanding music classes to expand my musical abilities. Currently, I am in the American Fork Symphony and have been playing with them for about 4 years. I also play the piano, organ and the mandolin. I love music!
I will be teaching in my home and prefer 30-45min lessons. Lessons are $12 for 30 minute lessons and $18 for 45 minute lessons. I am also willing to travel to neighboring cities, (Lehi, Pleasant Grove, Alpine, Highland, Cedar Hills, Saratoga Spring, Eagle Mountain) for the same pricing that includes the travel time + gas (Each situation will be slightly different of course, so we can talk more). I do the first lesson for free so that we can get to know each other! I have two recitals a year for my students. One in the spring/early summer and one in December for Christmastime. I accompany the students on the piano for their beautiful solo performances. I will make lesson plans specific to each student and where they are on the violin. I love teaching beginners thru intermediate players! I have taught all ages as well! From 5 to 35 years old!
I would love to hear from you and begin our journey with the violin!
