Laurie Alsobrook


Artist homepage:

After a full career in elementary education, Laurie Alsobrook has turned her attention to sharing the joy of playing the dulcimer at festivals, workshops, and retreats from Vermont to Florida. What a perfect blending of her two passions – working with learners and playing the dulcimer!

In the world of online instruction, Laurie taught at the Dutchland Virtual Dulcimer Gathering in July, has led workshops with dulcimer clubs in other parts of the country, and also has private students via zoom. She also hosts a Friday afternoon online jam and participates as a song leader in another virtual jam session every Saturday.

A staple at Dulcimer U since 2016, she has led the advancing beginner morning skills class, afternoon electives and her very quirky evening jam sessions. Recently, Laurie along with co-director David Beede, organized and hosted a very successful and highly acclaimed "Dulcimers Do Digital" at the 2020 Stephen Foster Dulcimer Retreat...just last week!

Laurie is known as an engaging teacher, receiving such comments from her students: "a lovely upbeat person," "great teacher," and "her enthusiasm is contagious!"
