Brynn is an experienced violinist currently earning her bachelor's degree in violin performance at Youngstown State University. She has been playing the violin for 11 years. She is classically trained but enjoys playing other styles of music as well. She has been a part of many honors ensembles such as PMEA District 1 Orchestra, PMEA Honors Orchestra and Strings North in PA. At Youngstown State University, Brynn participates in the Dana Chamber Orchestra, Dana Symphony Orchestra, and various chamber groups.
Along with participating in the ensembles offered at her college, she regularly performs with the Shenango High School pit orchestra each spring under the direction of Doug Butchy. Brynn has performed at Carnegie Hall in NYC, the Covelli Center, DeYor Performing Arts Center and Stambaugh Auditorium in Youngstown, OH.
Brynn also teaches each summer at Cello Fury Rock Camp which is an alternative strings camp based in Pittsburgh, PA. The students learn extended techniques and play rock music in both an orchestra and chamber music setting. She helps in masterclass, orchestra and she coaches the rock bands throughout camp.
Brynn's organized and friendly teaching style can help her students reach their musical goals. Her students can expect to improve each week in their technique and overall musicality. Each lesson is tailored to the individual students and she wants her students to have fun, love music and improve throughout their lessons. She uses the Suzuki books, the Barbara Barber scale method and student requests to help them achieve their musical goals. Brynn would love to help pass her passion for music along to her students and cannot wait to work with you!
Brynn offers lessons in the Youngstown area online and at her teacher location. Lessons at her home studio in Pittsburgh are offered during the summer months.
Brynn has child abuse clearances and criminal background checks (with fingerprints) in OH and PA.

Brynn is awesome and patient with me. She is very sweet and gives good directions. I actually enjoy doing homework for her.
Brynn is very patient with me and takes time to go over the music before playing. She fosters a positive learning environment, and is very encouraging.
Brynn not only teaches you to play the violin, but she goes over the fundamentals of violin practice etc. I don't have enough space to explain, you have to try a lesson for yourself!
Kind, patient, and very thorough with her lessons. She pushes her students to become the best they can be and helps them correct and see things to improve their playing.
Brynn did a great job helping me with my violin. We had some connection problems, but that wasn't her fault. She is nice and sweet and encouraging and patient. She also gave helpful tips.
Brynn is very patient, encouraging, and thorough!
