Previously on faculty at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music, Diller-Quaile School of Music, Cuyahoga Community College’s Orchestra Program, and Cleveland Institute of Music’s Sato Center for Suzuki Studies, Morganne Aaberg is currently teaching privately in Hawi, Hawaii. She has taught at several summer festivals, including Midsummer Sound (Barrie, Ontario) and the Meadowmount School of Music (Westport, NY), where she served as teaching assistant to Dr. Ann Setzer (Juilliard/Mannes). Morganne completed four years of full time Suzuki teacher training, first at the School for Strings, and later at the Cleveland Institute of Music as part of her masters degree. In addition to her extensive experience in the Suzuki Method, Morganne’s teaching is also informed by her training in string pedagogy from both Mannes and Indiana University, and experience in the Dalcroze and Orff approaches. Morganne specializes in private violin instruction, group violin classes, and group music literacy classes.

An avid chamber performer, Morganne cofounded the multidisciplinary performance group Artists By Any Other Name. She has appeared in recitals across the US, and as an orchestral musician in renown venues such as Alice Tully Hall and Carnegie Hall. Morganne currently performs with the Kamuela Philharmonic.
