An extremely dedicated artist, Lauri is exceptionally passionate about teaching. She studied music and pedagogy extensively through multiple venues, including a long term internship led by world class violinist, Dr. John Thomson of New Zealand, as well as specialized training at the Juilliard and Eastman Schools of Music, and the study of all Suzuki units under Mr. Mark Bjork at the University of Minnesota. Lauri delights in taking this instruction to the next level by developing creative, individualized strategies to develop the artist within each student.

Realizing that her students’ development is based greatly on her own, she is committed to her growth as a musician. Her love for performing, as well as delving into the history of the music, personality of the artists, and the stories behind the compositions, provides students a wellspring of exciting discoveries within their lessons.

Lauri’s journey with the violin began at the age of seven, but her passion for its voice was discovered at the early age of three, when upon hearing a violin performance on public radio, she cried – and desired to one day be a master of the instrument. She began private lessons, joined a Suzuki School, and in her teen years developed the need to pursue her lessons over 400 miles away from her home town. She has attended the Master Works Festival, received master classes from world class artists including members of the NSO, won auditions, founded a family string ensemble, and has performed in several symphony orchestras.

Dedicated to offering a complete and nurturing mentorship for her students, Lauri equips them with the technical and musical skills for fine music making, along with assisting them with all of the problems life throws at musicians.

With over 15 years of teaching experience, Lauri has taught Kindermusik classes, Suzuki violin in the Headstart program, pedagogy training, founded her own summer festival, and continues to further develop her unique private studio program. Upon moving from Minneapolis where she maintained 3 violin studios, Lauri now works as the string director for Lake Orion Baptist School, as well as establishing her own private studio. Past students have won competitions, played in master classes, performed in Carnegie hall, and have gone on to pursue music as a career.
