Sanchie Bobrow received her Suzuki teacher training from Louise Behrend and has been a member of the violin faculty of the School for Strings in New york City since 1988. She is the director of the Mighty String Demons, an ensemble of young violinists, who perform at schools, senior homes, hospitals, museums, and charity events in their Staten Island community. Ms. Bobrow has written several articles on violin pedagogy for the Suzuki Association of the Americas Journal as well as the School for Strings’ newsletter, The Tuning Fork. A composer as well as a violin instructor, Ms. Bobrow had her composition for string orchestra, Points of Light, premiered by the Camerata of the School for Strings at the school’s 40th Anniversary Celebration Concert at Carnegie Hall in May of 2011. The motivation for this article came from Christie Felsing’s Revisiting Book 1 teacher workshop at the Hartt Suzuki Institute, in which she asked participants to write a paper tracing a left hand concept in its development in Book 1, and show how the concept reappears in the repertoire of Book 2. Many thanks to Christie for her input and inspiration. And, also thanks to Allen Lieb who read my paper from Christie’s workshop and said, “turn it into an article and submit it to the SAA Journal!”
