Lauri Knapton

Lauri has worked in the music business since 1985. She started working in a music store when she was in high school.  Her parents never played musical instruments but encouraged her to play instruments by taking her to lessons and listening to her practice. 

Lauri has an Associates degree from UW Rock County and a Bachelors degree from UW Whitewater.  She plays the violin, piano, and organ.  She has also “played with” the cello, harpsichord, accordion, trumpet, guitar, ukulele and drums. 

Lauri loves traveling...with maps.  She's only used a GPS twice:  the first time it directed her through a field in Ohio, and the other time into the ocean in California!
