Strings

Gretchen Nealon studied violin with the former principal violinist of the London Philharmonic.  She continued on to earn her bachelor's degree in music and then taught orchestra and band at a middle school in North Carolina before moving into private instruction.  She has had experience both playing and teaching viola, cello, and bass.


Gretchen uses a number of resources while teaching strings, emphasizing the ability to play flexibly and accurately, both alone and in an orchestra, through exposure to many different pieces and types of music.
