Born into a musical family, Adrienne has been playing the violin since age 4. Her parents enrolled her in a Suzuki violin program in the Syracuse, NY area. By the time Adrienne was 16, and participated in the New York State School of Orchestral Studies Program, she wanted to pursue a career in music. After attending the Eastman School of Music for her undergraduate studies in violin performance and music education, she taught in the public schools as an orchestra director in Rochester, NY and Fairfax County, VA.

After leaving public school teaching to start a family, Adrienne freelanced and taught privately in her home for several years before returning to Eastman to study with Charles Castleman. In addition to her masters degree she has trained with Ronda Cole, Edmund Sprunger, and Linda Fiore in the Suzuki approach.

Since returning to public school teaching, Adrienne has created a Suzuki in the Schools program with her beginning 6th grade string students at J. Michael Lunsford Middle School in Chantilly, VA. In one year her program grew to become the second largest string program in Loudoun County. Her Tiger and Panther string ensembles have earned superiors at District 16 Orchestra Assessment since the school opened in 2011.

Adrienne serves as the President and Chair of the Suzuki Association of the Greater Washington Area and performs with the Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra in Savannah, GA.
