During the summer, Lauren is a teacher at the Upper Peninsula based string camp Superior String Alliance where she teaches students from elementary to high school age the joys of playing as an individual and with others in chamber music groups and orchestra. She believes strongly in the power of collaboration between players in all forms in order to teach problem solving skills, encourage cooperation and build new relationships, things that can be carried through all of life. As a teacher she has also been a part of the Lawrence University String Project, which taught groups of children violin after school, and the Ann Arbor based El Sistema inspired program at Mitchell Elementary. As a performer, Lauren has been a part of the Khemia ensemble, a contemporary music ensemble dedicated to diversifying and sharing the music of living composers as well as a faculty performer for Superior String Alliance, performing music all through Marquette and for students during the camp sessions.
