Hi! I am Hope Smith, Registered Suzuki Instructor in Pre-Twinkle up to book 4 with the Jonesboro Suzuki Institute. The Summer of 2017, I’ll be taking and registering the Book 5 pedagogy course. I started studying Suzuki violin in the North Suburban Special Education District in the north suburbs of Chicago, IL at the tender age of six. I continued my studies after moving to Arkansas in 1978 with the Suzuki Music School of Arkansas in Fayetteville, AR and then in private study with Dr. Richard Fuchs who was on the music faculty with the University of Arkansas. While in High School, I enjoyed the honor of participating in the Arkansas All State Symphony Orchestra in 1983 and 1984. In 1985, I had the honor to participate in the Music Festival of Arkansas, under the direction of Carlton Woods. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Music Education with emphasis in Music Therapy from Phillips University, Enid OK in 1993. During my college years I was principle second violinist with the Enid-Phillips Symphony Orchestra under the Direction of Douglas Newell.
Now I’m happily settled with an established studio in Jonesboro, AR where I have students ranging in age from 4 to 71 at various levels. I currently have a few openings and would love to welcome you to our little Suzuki Family. Please feel free to email or call me for more information. Or, visit our website:
