Libby Armour is a Suzuki violin and piano instructor with a private studio in Memphis, Tennessee, an adjunct professor at the University of Memphis, teaching Suzuki Pedagogy, and the violin instructor at the University of Mississippi. Having studied in a Suzuki studio as a child, she decided quite early that teaching this method was what she wanted to do with her life. After high school, she went to Matsumoto, Japan to study at the Talent Education Institute. For two years she studied with Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, founder of the Suzuki Method, and Dr. Haruko Kataoka, piano Master Teacher. In 1980 she performed a double graduation recital and received endorsement by Dr. Suzuki to teach his Method on both instruments. She finished a degree in this country as well and has been teaching since her return. She is a certified Teacher Trainer for the Suzuki Association of the Americas. Besides private teaching, she directs the Toscanini Chamber Ensemble, which performs widely. She was Concertmaster of the Corinth Symphony for 12 years, plays free-lance in orchestras, chamber groups, and solo performances, and plays in a contra dance band. She has taught and performed throughout the United States, in Japan, and in Europe.
