My name is Gudrun Fraser, and I have been the Performing Arts teacher at Our Lady of Lourdes since 2013. I am from Salt Lake City and earned my Bachelor's in Piano Performance from the University of Utah. After attending The Julliard School in New York, I concertized in Europe (Hochschule Hannover) for 2 years. Upon my return to the States, I spent a year recording and performing various ballets for the Colorado Ballet, including Fiddler on the Roof and Annie. I then worked as a music teacher in a Denver public school before getting married and starting a family. At this time private lessons (piano, voice, and musical theater) became a better fit for our young family. I am very proud of my students, some of whom have gone on to places such as the Peabody Conservatory, Boston School of Music, and the Denver School of Performing Arts. One former student is a professional singer in England!
I came to Lourdes Classical in 2013 because I love our commitment to the arts. It also allows me to write and direct (truly) Christmas plays. I enjoy teaching music theory, history, choir, recorder, keyboard, guitar, and theater arts, all while integrating these lessons with what students are learning in other classes.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, golf, tennis, and NASCAR.
