Corrina Barrett

Violin

Corrina applies diverse teaching experience and extensive training, primarily in the Suzuki method, to guide each unique student in their individual musical journey.

MORE ABOUT CORRINA

Corrina approaches lessons with a background in Suzuki methodology blended with her own creative strategies and experience as a learner. Making progress on the violin as a young student didn’t come easily for Corrina.  Awareness of the struggle that learning can be and how to assist the student through it, strengthens her effectiveness. Involvement in both classical and folk “fiddle” genres insures that her students get a solid foundation in music theory but also exposure to less structured forms and training in “playing by ear” as a skill that can be learned.

Corrina continues to actively learn as a musician and a teacher with wide experience in classical, folk, and contemporary genres.  

Education and Experience:

  • Suzuki Method Teacher Training with Mary Beth Cullitan, graduate, Spokane.
  • JayDean Ludiker Teacher Training Workshops, WOTFA, attendee, Spokane.
  • Classical violin private study, 7 years, Spokane.
  • Gonzaga Symphony, community member performer, Spokane.
  • Spokane Public Schools, TEC Program, violin instructor since 2012, Spokane.
  • General research and recording with local fiddler’s community, WA.
