Sherry Summers Venderley, a violin instructor, has been with the Fort Wayne Suzuki Talent Education Program (FWSTE) since 1999. A graduate of the University of Saint Francis, Sherry has also studied at Purdue University, Lafayette; and Indiana-Purdue University, Fort Wayne. Education includes Suzuki Teacher Training with Alice Joy Lewis. Teaching violin via the Suzuki Method has enabled Sherry to become an integral part of her student’s lives, and to realize her goal to not only instruct students to play well, but to help them achieve their musical voice, to play from their hearts, and to take joy in their music performance and music studies. The mother of three grown children who each studied Suzuki violin from age 4-18, Sherry often plays with them for weddings, religious services, and other occasions. Sherry has been a member of the Indiana—Purdue University Community Orchestra since 1995.
