Jennifer Diedrich grew up in DeKalb, Illinois and was a student of Arthur Montzka from 1974—1984; In high school, she was fortunate to study viola and chamber music with the Vemeer Quartet at Northern Illinois University. While pursuing a degree in Human Development at the University of Nebraska, Jennifer continued to study piano and played violin in community orchestras. She played intercollegiate tennis and taught tennis as a USPTA teaching professional, as well. In 2002, Jennifer formed the studio, Suzuki Strings of St. Petersburg. Hundreds of children and families have studied in the studio and have played for the communities of Tampa Bay.
