Chloe began studying violin at the age of three in Seattle, Washington under the tutelage of Kathleen Boyer- second violinist with The Seattle Symphony. She started with the Suzuki method and attended the advanced Japan-Seattle and Ithaca College Suzuki Institutes for several years. Along with her Suzuki studies, she also took part in the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra program and played in many group classes throughout the area.
Progressing quickly through the Suzuki repertoire, Chloe moved across the country to begin studies at The Longy School of Music in Cambridge, MA. As a student at Longy she studied music theory, music composition and music history, as well as playing in masterclasses and performances constantly. She was also a member of many chamber music ensembles and The Longy Youth Chamber Orchestra as the youngest ever admitted member. She became the concert master after only a short time with the orchestra and traveled to Canada, Germany and the Czech Republic on tour. Chloe has also toured in Colima, Mexico playing chamber music with students of the Universidad de Colima.
Continuing on with Longy to receive her Certificate of Violin Performance, she competed in many competitions, performing some of the world’s most iconic violin repertoire both solo and with orchestra.
Chloe has studied with many notable teachers including Clayton Hoener- principle second violinist of The Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra as well as main study with the late Janet Packer- former Longy School of Music String Department Chair and acclaimed soloist. She has also studied with March Lakirovich, Sophie Vilker and Roman Totenberg.
Chloe moved back to Seattle in 2010 and became a member of The Seattle Philharmonic Orchestra under conductor Adam Stern.
She has since relocated to California and opened her private studio, to share her love of studying the violin with others. Chloe is strongly influenced by those early years attending Suzuki and chamber music camps while making music along side family and friends, and encourages her students to do the same. Many of her students are members of local youth orchestras and all perform in solo and ensemble recitals each year. She completed her teacher training at The Japan Seattle Suzuki Institute with Pricilla Jones and Kathleen Spring is a member of The Suzuki Association of Northern California.
Chloe currently plays and performs on a 2002 Douglas Cox “Vieuxtemps” Guarneri violin and was recently featured as a spotlight violinist on theCox Violins Website.
