Laura Jaye – Music
B.A. in Jazz Voice and Composition, Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University
M.A. in Jazz Studies and Vocal Performance, New England Conservatory
Laura knew at a very young age that a life of music was the only one for her. She is equally at ease playing bassoon in a symphony orchestra, scatting in a vocal jazz group, or jamming with an African drumming ensemble. While her career currently includes arranging, composing, and performing, Laura has found a unique joy in teaching. At Meridian, Laura leads our multi-genre band and teaches Music appreciation classes. She finds it very gratifying to share her passion for collaborating with other musicians, creating original music, and performing music. The Laura Grill Band, Laura's original folk/bluegrass/jazz project, can be heard in and around Boston.
