The Morgantown area student violinists study in WVU s Community Music Program with Mary Wilson. They include young aspiring violinists as well as several older students who display a great deal of proficiency and skill. The students will perform a variety of classical pieces.
Student performers are Emily Braham, Nina Han, Jee Young, William Gu, Katherine Henneberger, Kienan Battin, Akshay Chandran, Duncan Crooks, Tristan Quinones, Sara Jones, Vuong Nguyen, Kristi Guritza, Elizabeth Albuquerque, Jason Snyder, Allison Prescott, Patrick Sullivan, Eriko Hattori, Emily Ngan, Lucian Mazza, and MoMo Zhou.
The Suzuki method, developed in Japan by Dr. Shin’ichi Suzuki, is a way of teaching which strives to create ability and character in its students through a nurturing environment. It is most often used in learning to play music.
