We are delighted to have Miss Laura on the Milestones In Music teaching team! Miss Laura has a beautiful voice, has been a member of several choirs, chorales, and musical productions. Laura’s education (Master’s degree from Columbia University) and employment background was in social work within the school systems from preschool through older ages, so she has a rich background of working with children. According to Miss Laura, “singing has always been a part of my life. I was in chorus programs from elementary school through high school. In college, I served as the Music Chair for my sorority, putting together group singing events, skits and other fun competitions. I also attended parent/child music classes with my own children from infancy through preschool.”
