Bio

Born and raised in Wellington, Lauren Armstrong’s voice is influenced by the style and character of 1920s New Orleans. Having graduated from the New Zealand School of Music (BMus) , she performs regularly in Wellington and around New Zealand with vocal group “Sing Sing Sing” as well as leading a few of her own ensembles. A Wellington icon in her own right, she regularly works alongside many local luminaries in the New Zealand jazz scene.


Teaching Info

Maintaining musical individuality is an important aspect of teaching for me. I like to offer students the freedom to express themselves using their instrument. Ensuring a comfortable setting where the student can gain confidence and individuality as a musician.
Another big focus in my teaching is the aural component to learning. This coupled with training in technique, theory and improvisation can ensure a productive, yet thoroughly enjoyable lesson.
