Teaching LIFE through Music Education. Violin Coach Suzanne Cox

New to Instruments of Righteousness? I’m so glad you’re here! Let me introduce myself, show you around the site, see what’s new in the studio, and share how I can help you in your musical endeavors.

Who am I?

I’m Suzanne Cox, a passionate lover of life (including the violin) from the heart of the Willamette Valley in Oregon. Besides playing music, you’ll find me in my vegetable garden, out on a hiking trip, curled up with a cup of coffee (and my cat) browsing Pinterest, or working on a building project with my best friend who also happens to be my husband.

My Violin Journey

The violin stole my heart when I was 14 years old. I fell head over heels in love with the instrument and spent the next 8 years in passionate study. Thanks to my musical background of 10 years with the piano, I was able to progress rapidly on the violin. Within one year, I became the concertmaster for my local Youth Orchestra. Two years following, I won the Young Artist Competition and performed the Haydn Violin Concerto with our Community Orchestra. In addition to my private studies, I also spent two summers at the MasterWorks Music Festival in Indiana. Shortly after, I was accepted as a student at the University of Puget Sound where I studied Music Education.

With over 14 years of studio teaching experience, I’ve built my studio from the ground up in 3 different locations and gained invaluable knowledge in studio policies and practices. I’ve studied with more than a dozen private teachers myself, substitute taught for my peers, and actively studied the studios of others. I built my current studio from 0 to 30 students in one year.

What can I do for you?
