Montrose United Methodist

Laurie Ranum



I graduated from Colorado State University in 1994 with a degree in English education and a minor in music. Growing up I had 14 years of formal piano instruction.


My music experience includes playing the piano and accompanying various sacred and secular groups and soloists for over 35 years, teaching private piano lessons for 20 years, and playing the piano for Montrose United Methodist Church for ten years. In addition to my music endeavors, I have also taught English in middle and high school settings for 12 years.


While I originate from the Front Range of Colorado, my two kids, Paul and Alison, and I have enjoyed living in Montrose the past 12 years.
