Linda Hoddy

Violin, Viola Teacher

SAA Member

I am retiring from a career as a member of the clergy (Unitarian Universalist), and look forward to spending more time on one of my first loves—teaching and playing violin and viola. I’m attracted to Suzuki teaching because I have greatly enjoyed working with children in my congregation to create music for services. The Suzuki philosophy and method captivates me. What a wonderful way to approach learning and life.

I minored in music in college (Wichita State University) and have studied off and on over the years. For the last five years I’ve studied violin with Tania Susi. Tania urged me to teach because I greatly enjoy analyzing my own, and others’ playing to produce wonderful sound.
