Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Laura has taught private clarinet lessons online, as well as in-person where it is deemed safe (which is often outdoors, in 2021.) In the summer of 2021, Laura's summer studio performed in a Zoom Studio Recital. Students performed both live, and with piano accompaniment in recorded performances. Pictured above are students from the live recital performance, and stills of student recital recordings. Students made remarkable progress working toward this performance!
