If you are looking for the very "best" award winning PIANIST in the Dallas/Fort Worth area with the "most" diverse & extensive repertoire, you have come to the right place.

Laura can provide her own 88 key Yamaha piano & sound system. She further customizes the sound to fit the style & genre of the music played. For example: songs can be played on not only the "Grand Piano," setting, but also on "Strings," "Electric," & "Organ."

Her many clients love the creative, unique way Laura puts together a wedding ceremony, music for a reception and/or cocktail hour.
