From a young age, Lori has enjoyed sharing her love of the marvels of electronic keyboard instruments with everyone. Through this passion, she has been able to build and oversee the popular Yamaha Clavinova Festival (www.clavinovafestival.com) over the past two decades. Lori is also involved with several other Yamaha programs, including “Say Yes to Music After School” and Sam’s Clubs Piano Roadshows. Currently a consultant to the Yamaha Music and Wellness Institute (www.yamahainstitute.org), Lori delights in bringing the benefits of music-making to many people who never thought it was even possible to play an instrument. She resides in the Southwest with her husband Skip and her basset hound puppy, Beasley.
