Cheyenne is an accomplished violin & viola player living in Seattle, Washington. She is classically trained on the violin and has been performing for the last 20 years. Cheyenne has been a part of various orchestras and symphonies throughout Southeastern Wisconsin & Philadelphia. She is a certified Suzuki teacher in violin & viola, and is a member of the Suzuki Association of Washington State.

At 30 years old, Cheyenne is passionate about teaching and has maintained a private music studio since 2016. Miss Cheyenne learned violin primarily through the Suzuki Method, and was greatly impacted by her private teachers who taught her not only how to play the violin with beautiful tone but also how to be a kind and nurturing person. As such, she primarily uses the Suzuki Method in her own teaching to offer her students the rewarding experience. For more details on Miss Cheyenne’s teaching methods, scroll down to the next section!


Miss Cheyenne primarily teaches her students using the Suzuki Method. This philosophy of teaching encourages teachers to create a positive and nurturing learning environment, thus allowing students to thrive and grow as musicians and as human beings. The Suzuki Method also strongly encourages parental involvement (for ages 3-12), at-home listening of repertoire, and group classes to allow for even more musicianship growth. For additional information on the Suzuki Method, please visit the Suzuki Association of the America’s site here

For adult students and for those who prefer to learn repertoire outside of the Suzuki repertoire, Cheyenne also teaches folk, fiddle, and other popular genres. She has a wealth of materials including contemporary and traditional violin & viola technique books to help you reach your individual musical goals. Lessons are ultimately centered around you, and she will work with you to help you get to where you need to be whether for personal, professional, or scholastic motives!
