Born to symphony musicians, Lindsay Serdar began violin lessons at 3 and piano lessons at 5. She studied violin with her parents until 5th grade, when she moved into Marcia Henry’s studio, where she would stay through high school. Meanwhile, on the piano, Lindsay studied with Suzuki teacher Anna Nogaj through 4th grade and then moved into Yuri Iwasaki’s studio until her high school transition to Claude Hobson. All the while, her parents helped her to realize her love of collaboration, through participation in their team-taught Suzuki studio and with Lindsay’s fellow members of the Central Illinois Youth Symphony.

Lindsay earned her BM in violin at San Jose State University, studying with the Cypress String Quartet. Unable to put one instrument down in favor of another, Lindsay kept busy as a collaborative pianist for Cypress’ studio and other performing opportunities in the Bay Area. After graduating, the Serdars returned to Illinois. Lindsay spent a year as the pianist for the Peoria Symphony’s 2012-2013 season before moving to the Seattle area. Lindsay continued to teach piano and violin privately while accompanying and coaching for several local string studios. Enjoying cross-country moves so much, Lindsay and her husband decided to make one more big move in January of 2020. She and her husband now live in the Fort Worth, Texas area with their three children. Most recently, Mrs. Serdar has taken a position in HEB ISD as a Suzuki Strings Specialist at North Euless Elementary. She is enjoying her time teaching during the day and spending time with her family in the evenings.
