MM, Voice Performance and Pedagogy
A student of the world-renowned (and DC hometown favorite!) Denyce Graves, Lauren Anderson holds a Masters of Music in Voice from Peabody Conservatory. Lauren is thrilled to be teaching at Cardon Studios and excited to work with many different types of students. Lauren’s background in vocal pedagogy and classical technique for both voice and piano can be applied to whichever genres her students would like to explore and Lauren loves to find ways to adapt to each student’s unique needs. Lauren guides her students to become well-rounded musicians by helping to foster, not only their primary instrument, but also their knowledge in music theory and history. Endlessly curious, Lauren remains active in her own musical training and continues to study and coach in Washington, D.C.
A lover of the stage, Lauren has recently been seen as Dorothèe in Massanet’s Cendrillon, Julia Bertram(cover) in the U.S. Premiere of Mansfield Park, and Idamante in Mozart’s Idomeneo, Leila in Gilbert and Sullivan’s Iolanthe, among others. Lauren also represented Peabody for the Conservatory Project Concert at the Kennedy Center where she performed selections from Jake Heggie’s Camille Claudel: Into the Fire with string quartet. Lauren particularly enjoys performing new music, and enjoyed the opportunity to travel to Houston to perform excerpts from Jason Mulligan’s opera Through the Looking Glass at a New American Voice Concert in Houston, Texas. Throughout the season, can also be seen performing with the Annapolis Opera Chorus.
“Lauren has been great so far and I think she found a good level at which to begin with me. Can’t wait to learn more! Cardon Studios couldn’t be a better location for me. It’s very clean and welcoming and I feel safe and comfortable in the space.” – Tozer H., adult Piano
