Anne Rendle

Violin Teacher

Anne Rendle

SAA Member

Anne loves to create a fun, relaxed lesson environment for her students while also encouraging them to grow technically and musically. She teaches weekly private lessons and monthly group lessons in Renton, WA and weekly South Sound Suzuki Strings group classes in Kent, WA. She’s been playing violin since the fifth grade and has had the pleasure of studying with Patty Nuernberg, Ruth Marie Ballance, and Jan Coleman. It became clear to her that she had to play the violin after she heard her older brother and his youth orchestra play “The Moldau” by Bedrich Smetana.

She completed a Bachelor’s in Music through Thomas Edison State University and has received Suzuki method teacher certification in violin units one through six studying with Kathleen Spring, Susan Kempter, Beth Titterington, Cathryn Lee, Kirsten Marshall, Ann Montzka Smelser, Mark Mutter, and Allen Lieb. Anne is constantly looking for ways to grow as a teacher and player. She currently plays in New Hope Presbyterian Church’s worship ensemble every week and is thrilled to make guest appearances with the folk/new age band Erwilian on a regular basis.

When she’s not teaching or making music, Anne loves to spend time by the ocean, research new music theory and violin technique games, watch period dramas with her family, go to Disney theme parks, plan road trips to historical buildings and broadway tour shows, and plot out her next Suzuki summer institute trip.
