Irene Mitchell

Irene Mitchell was fortunate to experience a diversity of cultures in her youth, living in ten countries throughout Latin America, Europe and Asia. This shaped her appreciation for a wide range of music, eventually leading her to earn a BM and MME at the University of North Texas.

Irene teaches in her home studio in Dallas, TX, and serves as a clinician for Suzuki programs throughout the world.
