Ms. Lori Smith
Staff Accompanist

Lori Smith has been the Staff Accompanist for the Music Department of Georgetown College since 2007.  She works with vocal students and their teachers in lessons as well as in private coaching sessions, and accompanies chamber opera, opera workshop, choirs, and other recitals and performances as needed.

 Mrs. Smith received the Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Pedagogy from Baylor University in 1987, graduating with Honors under the teaching of Jane Abbot-Kirk.  She was a member of Mu Phi Epsilon music fraternity and Gamma Beta Phi honor society.

 After returning to her hometown of St. Louis, Missouri she taught piano privately for many years.  An active member of several music teachers’ organizations including MTNA and NFMC, she also enjoyed playing duo-piano literature with a colleague.  Mrs. Smith has served in various church music positions as pianist, organist, and children’s choir director.  She is interested in using digital technology in teaching and accompanying and has attended Keyboard Ensemble and Technology Seminars (KETS) under the direction of Susan Ogilvy.  Although her private teaching is currently very limited, she continues to explore and learn solo piano literature in the Dorsey Class for piano teachers led by respected pedagogue Maurice Hinson.
