I was a Suzuki kid since age 3 and the greatest time in my childhood was playing with the Wisconsin Youth Symphony Orchestra for 3 years. At some point in High School I decided to put down the violin only to pick it up here and there throughout my 20s. A few years ago I started playing seriously again (and I found a great teacher last fall), and it has been the best thing in my life. I have been teaching my 4 year old daughter violin for a year now and she has inspired me so much. She has also inspired her older sister to try and so now I am teaching them both! I now see that my path in life is to teach violin especially to the little ones. I have started Suzuki teacher training and am interested in taking the ABRSM exams which is something I just discovered here in the U.S.
I'm currently renovating a Queen Anne Victorian home that my great-grandmother bought 100 years ago and has been in my family ever since. I plan on opening a violin studio out of the home soon. In the small, southern WI city of Brodhead, there are no other string teachers, and no string program in the school, so I hope to inspire some kids to play violin!
