Robert Rowe - Violin, Viola , and Cello
A multi-instrumentalist from the age of 9, Rob has continued to push the boundaries of his musicianship. While pursuing his degree in music education, Rob double-majored in cello and oboe, and began violin and viola while teaching in the Philadelphia Public Schools. When he discovered the ukulele, Rob found his love for songwriting. Put all of his life experiences together, and you get a musician who loves to teach and share, who puts a heavy emphasis on listening and playing freely, and is able to apply techniques gained from learning one instrument to the skills needed for another.

Theresa Peterson - Violin/Viola
A lifelong violinist since age 3, Theresa was classically trained throughout her upbringing in Texas. Picking up viola by age 10, she began playing viola professionally in classical quartets and playing violin in a band in her early teens, as well as teaching lessons on the weekends.
Theresa's teaching style is flexible to each student's skills and interests, but often takes focus in technique, practice strategies and memorization strategies, so students learn how to practice and learn independently while building good habits. A mostly classical foundation is provided, but students are encouraged to bring in their own material if they have interests in other styles of music and lessons can focus on any material the student desires.
Theresa is not currently taking new students
