I am Loralee

I have been a musician since I was very young.  We always had a piano in my house and I took lessons starting at age 8.  I also began playing the trombone in band at age 12 and studied it as my main focus all the way through college.  I earned my bachelors degree in Music Performance at the University of Wyoming.  As a music student, coursework included trombone pedagogy and private piano study.  Even though trombone was my main focus, piano has been a useful learning tool and relaxation instrument for me throughout the course of my professional life.  

 

In 2009 I won a spot in the US Navy Fleet Bands as a trombone instrumentalist.  I spent the next 10 years touring all over the country and world as a professional musician performing in large classical ensembles, small chamber groups, rock bands, jazz bands, and marching bands.  Upon moving to Rhode Island my husband and I fell in love with the state and decided to put down our roots here. I studied piano tuning at the Piano Technician's Academy and started teaching lessons to local students.  Thus was born Loralee’s Piano School and Tuning.
