Leticia Dellepere Colligan
Violin Teacher, Parent, Student
Leticia has loved music her entire life. She took piano for four years, guitar for two, but found her true calling with the violin. She quickly found her passion and worked very hard to attain her goals of playing at the local orchestra in her county. Through the guidance of wonderful violin instructors, she learned firsthand the Suzuki concept that Every Child Can, rings true. With the support of her mentors and family, she played locally through many ensembles, and is still a part of her church brass and string ensemble at church. Along with her love of music, she loves teaching children. She has been a Sunday School teacher, and currently is the Youth Director at her church. She is a part of the Children’s Program at her church, and has assisted with music and drama programs since she was fifteen.
After taking a short hiatus to get married and begin a family she decided to finish her desire to combine her love of music with her love of teaching children, She is working on her B.A. in Early Childhood Education, started a Mommy and Me program called God’s Little Lamb, and serving her local community as a Classical Conversations Tutor. She also plans to extend her Units in the violin through the SAA.
The thrill that comes in mastering a new piece, becoming a part of an ensemble, or awaiting for your moment to enter the piece in an orchestra, is one that fills her heart with joy to this very day. She hopes to instill these feelings as a teacher. If she can impart this with at least half the passion and encouragement her past teachers imparted through their music and lessons she will feel content. Every child deserves to feel that they CAN!
