Mr. Kendrey Trammell
Viola, Violin, Cello, Bass, Piano Teacher
Greetings, my name is Ken Trammell and I am a violinist/violist and accompanist from the northern Virginia area. I had a very musical life growing up; my mother and grandmother sang as mezzo-sopranos in their church and my sister is an active composer and bassist. I began learning piano at eight years old and then I started on the trumpet at ten. I switched to the baritone and began learning the violin a couple years later, as well as the viola, cello, and double bass. Later on in high school, not only had I taught myself each band and orchestra instrument, I was freelancing all over the greater Washington area as well.
I went on to undergraduate school earning my Bachelor’s in Music Performance with a concentration on euphonium, bassoon, and violin and receiving my K-12 Instrumental Music Education teaching license. I am currently working on my Masters in Viola Performance at Shenandoah University.
I taught orchestra at two northern Virginia middle schools for three years and currently I am finishing my second year at the Elementary music level. I have over a decade of church music direction and over fifteen years accompanying experience. I have performed in the violin section with the Loudoun Symphony Orchestra and Pro Arte Symphony Orchestra of Greater Washington; the bass section in the Manassas Symphony Orchestra; and for wedding, orchestral substitute, and chamber music gigs on violin, viola, cello, bass, and piano. I have also written many different compositions for varying performing levels and instrumentations, including two symphonies.
I currently live in the Northern VA area with my wife and baby boy, Ty.
