DEVIN COPFER   is a registered Suzuki teacher, performer, recording musician, and arts entrepreneur based in Columbus, OH.

Devin is committed to nurturing every student that comes to her studio. She follows Dr. Suzuki’s notion that truly, everyone can learn, that “any child has the possibility to be musically inclined,” as long as we grow a love of learning and creativity at home as well as in the studio. Through music lessons, we not only get to know our playing, but we get to know ourselves. We will encourage work ethic, responsibility to music and learning, engaging the immediate and extended family, the joy of hard work, and so much more. Here, we understand that success doesn’t come from outcome, but rather from our journey.

Devin is the co-founder, director, and violinist in Chamber Brews, a dynamic new music ensemble known for multi-genre collaborations with outstanding artists and designing unique and interactive programming. She also serves as first violinist in Columbus’ Janus String Quartet, Concertmaster of the Worthington Chamber Orchestra, and Assistant Concertmaster in the Newark Granville Symphony Orchestra. She has worked with Cory Wong, The Columbus Jazz Orchestra and Maria Schneider, Helen Sung, Dr. Mark Lomax, BalletMet, Michael Bublé, and The Trans Siberian Orchestra.

Prominent Suzuki trainers have been Linda Stieg, Martha Shackford, Roger Stieg, Charles Krigbaum, and Daina Staggs. Prominent early teachers were Liesl Hook and Liza Grossman, and prominent secondary teachers are Dr. Kia Hui Tan, Leonid Polonsky, and Mark Rudoff.
