Laura Walter (b. 1959)
Laura Walter (Roth) received her BA and MM degrees from the University of Kentucky. Her principal teachers were Gordon Cole, Kyril Magg, and Peter Lloyd. She performs with several orchestras and chamber groups in the Santa Barbara and Los Angeles area and serves on the faculty of Westmont College. In her work with students and teachers, she develops the experience of interactive play to study how sound can effect emotions, and how the acquisition of language coupled with movement build both the imagination and stabilization of the child necessary for cognitive growth.
