General Meeting and Program-September 2019
September 25 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
David Strom has been in demand as a clinician and lecturer at workshops and institutes throughout the country. His students regularly win top prizes at competitions and have gone on to attend top music conservatories. David is a registered teacher trainer with the Suzuki Association of the Americas (SAA).
Having been shaped musically and personally by great teachers, David is passionate about music education and child development. David received his MM from the University of Maryland in violin performance with a Suzuki Pedagogy specialization. After graduating, David founded and directed Suzuki Violin programs at the Academy of Music in Gaithersburg, the Flint Hill Program in Gaithersburg, and the Herndon Suzuki School (which he continues to direct). In 2003, Ronda Cole invited him to be her co-teacher at Northern Virginia Suzuki Music School.
David’s dream for all of his students is the development of higher level functioning- sensitivity, expressiveness, persistence, communication, leadership, compassion, and empathy through the medium of the violin.
When not playing or teaching, David is also a composer and arranger in a wide variety of mediums. David’s most important job is that of father to his beloved daughter Juliet—the light of his life.
