Dannielle plays the violin & viola and is a Suzuki Violin teacher in Newport News. She has been playing the violin since she was 8 years old. She received her Bachelor of Science Degree from Ohio University. She has served as a clinician and adjudicator at local Universities, and public and private schools. Before moving to Virginia, she was a member of the Tuscarawas Philharmonic Orchestra in Tuscarawas, Ohio. Dannielle is a member of the Suzuki Association of Americas and the National Association of Music Education. Being brought up as a Suzuki Violin student, she has always been fascinated with how very young children can learn to play the violin with such high technical skill. So she began teaching her own children at very young ages. She always wanted to have a family quartet. So once her youngest child, Sterling, was born, she put her plan into action by starting him on the cello. She now focuses most of her time running her own private violin studio, arranging music, and performing with her quartet.
