About the Teacher
Progressing from her first violin lessons at age 8, Valerie served as Concertmaster of the Couth Carolina All-State Orchestras throughout Jr. & Sr. High. Her summers were spent at the Brevard Music Center and at the Meadowmount School of Music as a student of Ivan Galamian. Her other teachers during this time were Jerrie Lucktenberg (Juilliard graduate) and Elaine Richey (Curtis graduate & assistant to Ivan Galamian). Following graduation, Valerie earned a Bachelor of Music degree from Curtis Institute of Music under Jascha Brodsky and a Masters of Music from Carnegie-Mellon University under Sydney Harth. She was a member of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for several years before leaving to pursue private string teaching.
Having begun teaching at age 15, Valerie has nearly fifty years of experience instructing teachers and students alike - from beginning to the most advanced. The Violin Virtuosity Books & DVDs series combines insights from Jascha Brodsky and secrets which she has learned from years of analyzing the needs of hundreds of students. She has published complete scale Books & DVDs for violin and viola, taught string workshops, and conducted clinics to enable string players to overcome awkwardness and destructive tension. Presently, she is a professor at North Georgia College and State University while continuing to maintain her private teaching studio. Her students have regularly won top honors in many competitions.
