Kylie graduated with distinction from Northern Arizona University with a Master of Music degree in Suzuki Violin Pedagogy in May 2016. She studied Suzuki pedagogy with Dr. Louise Scott and Dr. Karin Hallberg. She graduated from Oklahoma State University in May 2013 with her Bachelor of Music degree in Violin Performance and a minor in Spanish. She began taking Suzuki violin lessons in Stillwater, Oklahoma with Mahlon Halleck when she was four years old. During her time at OSU, Kylie studied violin and viola with Dr. Laura Talbott.

Kylie has spent summers at Brevard Music Center in North Carolina and playing violin at the Pierre Monteux School in Maine, where she participated in numerous orchestra concerts with musicians from all over the country. In addition to her Suzuki training, Kylie is also certified in Unit 1A and 1B Music Mind Games.

Kylie currently plays violin in the Flagstaff Symphony and the Verde Valley Sinfonietta in Sedona. She is the Assistant Suzuki Strings Coordinator at the NAU Community Music and Dance Academy where she teaches violin lessons and Suzuki group classes. She also teaches second grade Suzuki Violin classes at Marshall Magnet elementary school in Flagstaff. Kylie will be the new Strings Teacher at Northland Preparatory Academy starting in Fall 2019. She will not be accepting any new students during the 2019-2020 year as she adjusts to her new job at NPA.

When she’s not teaching, Kylie enjoys playing violin/viola in the Skylight City String Quartet, reading a good book, going on hikes, and spending time with her dog Rigby.
