Korinne Lowe Hamblin began her violin studies at the age of four with world-renowned Suzuki teacher Hiroko Primose who worked directly under Dr. Shinichi Suzuki. She was part of a select group to perform with the Utah Symphony when she was 9, which group also performed in concert with Maestro Joseph Silverstein. Under the direction of Primose, she toured the Pacific Northwest and Canada twice with the Suzuki Strings and the BYU Young Chamber Players.

During her teenage years Korinne soloed several times with different symphonies, receiving three standing ovations for her performance of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. At the invitation of Primose, she spent the summer of 1994 training and teaching violin at the Punaho School of Music in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Korinne received her BA in Music from BYU in 1998, where she was 1st violinist with the BYU Philharmonic. She also studied with French-Russian violinist Nell Gotkovsky and teacher/author, Cynthia Richards.

Having attended numerous Suzuki Institutes, Korinne has completed teacher training for all ten Suzuki books and continues her training every year. In addition to Hiroko Primose, her teacher trainers include Ed Kreitman, Nancy Jackson, Joanne Bath, Alice Joy Lewis, Cathy Lee, and Christie Felsing.

As one of the nine performing Lowes, Korinne offers free Suzuki workshops for violin students around the country.
