Student Testimonials

As an adult student with no prior music experience, I was nervous about picking up flute lessons.  However, thanks to an excellent teacher with a vast music experience and friendly demeanor, my perception completely changed.  Not only did Lauren teach me solid flute foundation, she also made sure I enjoyed every lesson.  Her teaching method is thorough and instructive.  She allows you to understand the feel and nuances in various pieces.  She takes her lessons personally and invests her time and energy to improve your skills.  I would recommend Lauren without hesitation to anyone seeking flute lessons.

My daughter decided at 9 she was going to play the flute but unfortunately at her school they are not allowed to start that early.  Emersen knew Lauren from her student placement.  When we ran into Lauren, Emersen set up her own flute lessons.  Lauren was extremely accommodating, very knowledgeable and started Emersen off on the right foot!  Lauren was the perfect first instructor for my daughter and we will forever appreciate everything she did for our daughter!! Lauren is top notch and we highly recommend her!

Lauren is patient and flexible. She would take the time to listen and help you work toward your own goals on the flute. The lessons were comprehensive and productive. We were very lucky to have lesson with Lauren.

Lauren keeps lessons exciting by teaching classics and modern material.  She gradually and appropriately increases the difficulty of her lessons.  And Lauren's sunny personality works very well for my daughter.

Lauren started tutoring Adalee shortly after she started playing flute in fourth grade. She is currently entering 8th grade and is one of the top flautists in her grade.  Lauren has a way to motivate Adalee to want to play and perform more challenging pieces. She focuses not only on teaching the notes, but also the nuances in the piece of music to make her sound her best.  She makes the lessons fun and engaging.  Lauren pays attention to every detail including body posture and better performance techniques. I would highly recommend her to work with other aspiring flautists or musicians that want to improve their skill set.

Lauren has a kind and encouraging manner when working with students. She supports students where they are and provides appropriate challenge to support their musical growth. We appreciated the focus on school selections prior to concerts.

Working with Lauren Zwonik was an amazing experience. She is an extremely gifted performer and educator that has the ability to translate ideas and concepts in a million different ways in order to help her students better understand. I personally struggle with ADHD and it is very important that my teachers are able to break down large concepts multiple ways. She also is able to bring the wealth of information that she has learned through her college experience and performance opportunities to her students in a way that truly enriches the experience. I highly recommend working with Lauren to all that have the opportunity, she truly has helped me through struggles I had with my fundamentals and helped me to see works of music from a much more creative perspective.

Lauren is a very positive teacher who is always encouraging and patient. She has taught me many fresh, creative musical concepts that have enhanced my practice sessions for long after our lesson. Lauren puts the emphasis on bringing flute playing to life through expression and interpretation, and this has helped me take the pieces I am working on to the next level. A few times, I have worked with Lauren on pieces that I already had been playing for quite awhile, but she always gave me a fresh perspective on the piece and new practicing ideas to ensure that I would continue to grow with the piece and never stop striving for improvement. Lauren always brings her friendliness and positive attitude to each lesson, creating a hard-working yet comfortable environment to for her students to learn and grow.

 Lauren has greatly advanced my abilities in what I would considered more sophisticated and challenging topics to teach, such as tone, musical feeling/expression, rhythm and breath & body use.  On these topics and others not mentioned Lauren provides a starting point and moves you through the process with progressive steps to achieve the end desired result.  I am impressed by her knowledge of the flute and music and her ability to share that knowledge with a student.  In addition to the classroom Lauren also provided me with opportunities to partake in other CAC events to further my understanding and appreciation of music.

If Lauren is your flute teacher, you will definitely improve.  No matter what the issue, she will find a way to correct it.  In addition, her energy and enthusiasm is infectious and will make you want to learn.

I took weekly private lessons from Lauren while she was studying at the Crane Music School, and starting with the first lesson I was very thankful that we connected. She both challenges and encourages, her attention never wavers, she is enthusiastic and knowledgeable about all aspects of music, I felt that she was always guided in her instruction by my specific needs and strengths. I was happy for Lauren when she left for graduate school, but I have missed her lessons ever since!

I have been taking lessons with Lauren for four or five years.  I started learning flute as a mature student as I was retiring from teaching.  I have only praise for Lauren.  Her teaching is both a combination of detailed technique work and overall musicality.  Her style is intelligent, casual and extremely helpful.  She is a very good teacher.
