Cynthia (Dumm) Andrews was in the first group of Suzuki students to start in the Penfield Suzuki Program.  She received a Bachelor of Music Education from Wheaton College (Illinois) and a Master of Music in Music Education from the Eastman School of Music.  She began her public school teaching career in the Lynchburg Public Schools (Virginia) as an elementary Suzuki violin teacher in 1982, and has taught strings in the Penfield Central School District (New York) for over 30 years.  She taught Suzuki violin in the Eastman School of Music Community Education Division from 1986 to 1990.  Since then she has continued to teach private Suzuki violin lessons in her home, and she plays in area community and church orchestras. She has also taught violin and theory for six summers at the Csehy Summer School of Music.  She is married and has two college-aged children who played Suzuki violin, cello, and piano.  Her family has fond memories from the four summers they spent at the Ithaca Suzuki Institute in the early 2000’s!
