My name is Adie Cannon and I have been teaching the violin and the in Tucson, both in individual and group lessons since 2010.

My lessons focus on building a strong technical foundation through having fun playing music! In order to teach music fundamentals in a fun and engaging way, my teaching strategy employs music-reading games from day one, as well as early entry to music theory, history, and ear training!

I like to be very flexible in my teaching style in order to accommodate diversity in students' prior musical training and musical interests. At each level of mastery, my students learn new skills and pieces to both challenge and inspire them in their pursuit of learning the art of performing music!

About Adie C.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE:
I began my teaching career in 2010 as a sectional coach through "Tucson Jr. Strings," of which I am an alumni. I have since been invited as a guest clinician for a number of local orchestra programs. I also volunteer my talents as a violist for the church choirs of St. Christopher and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, under the direction of Dominic Muller, and as a volunteer violin instructor through Tucson Summer Music. In order to teach music fundamentals in a fun and engaging way, my teaching strategy employs music-reading games from day one, as well as early entry to music theory, history, and ear training!

PERFORMANCE EXPERIENCE:
Since beginning my musical journey at age 9 through Tucson's public music education, I have since performed as a soloist and chamber musician in eleven U.S. states and several countries spanning North America and Europe. I have participated in music festivals including Interharmony International Music Festival in Arcidosso, Italy; the Karen Tuttle Viola Workshop; Rocky Ridge Summer Music Camp; and the New York Summer Music Festival (where I received their Full Scholarship Award in 2009). My primary teachers have included Hong-Mei Xiao and Dennis Bourret. I have also studied with and participated in master classes from dozens of the world's most prominent violists. I have been the recipient of awards including the Tucson Philharmonia Scholarship Competition Merit Award (2010) and the Young Musicians Competition: Honorable Mention, Division Four Finalist (2008).

As an advocate of new music, I have premiered countless original works by many of today's contemporary composers. I continue to pursue my passion for composition by writing original compositions for my students.
