Lindy Wagner began taking violin lessons shortly before her fifth birthday. She received both her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in violin performance from Eastern Michigan University where she served as concertmaster of the university orchestra for several semesters. She has experience performing in community orchestras, chamber groups, churches, and weddings. She is concertmaster of the Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra (KSO) and played in the Pine Mountain Music Festival Symphony Orchestra during their 2015 season. In 2016, Lindy performed with the KSO as a winner of the orchestra’s Concerto and Aria Contest.
Lindy has completed teacher training through Book 8 in the Suzuki method of violin pedagogy. Since January 2014, she has taught violin and viola for both the Copper Country Suzuki Association and Michigan Technological University. She enjoys helping her students build skills on the violin and desires to give each of them a strong technical base on which they can develop expressive playing. Lindy believes all children have musical ability and wants her students to experience the joy of making music while developing the technical freedom to attain whatever level of playing they aspire to.
