Raymond Mallari, B.M. and M.M., West Chester University. Suzuki Certified.

Raymond Mallari acquired his advancing musical powers from West Chester University. Much to his crazy ambition, he completed his degrees at West Chester University in both violin and viola! A great example of his craziness was when he participated in the MTNA Music Competition not once, but 4 times. No—he didn’t win 1st place, but the judges did like his playing as he had been awarded “2nd” and “Honorable Mention” in some categories. His orchestral experience includes many groups, but these days he just plays with Kennett Symphony as a section violist. One orchestra even hired him to tour China back in the day! Another time he left the country was when he earned a diploma of chamber music from a place in Spain called ChamberArt. “RayRay,” as his friends and co-workers call him, has over 15 years experience teaching strings from many institutes. He is a faculty member at Immaculata University Malvern and Chestnut Hill Music Academy. He is also wildly active with the Greater Philadelphia Suzuki Association, having the honor of being a former Vice President Board Member. He is a certified Suzuki instructor and heavily incorporates it to his pedagogy. Outside of music, he is currently attempting yoga, attempting a 5K, and attempting to navigate Wegmans.
