Miss Lawrence's Music Room

Average Rating4.67
(based on 3 reviews)

Hello, my name is Tanya Lawrence. After many years of teaching music in both state & private schools, I now teach in my own small, private studio. I've always enjoyed the challenge of creating my own resources within the skill scope of a particular class and/or around a specific topic. Now, I'm enjoying offering some of these to help other teachers create their own exciting music lessons. I welcome constructive feedback on any of them.
