Terri Goulard Henningson, violin teacher, has been teaching privately since 1983. Terri began studying violin at the age of 2 ½ in Pasadena, California under the instruction of an American Suzuki pioneer, Elizabeth Mills. At the age of five, she was personally invited by Dr. Suzuki to become the first American student to participate in the Grand Concert held yearly in Tokyo. She has since traveled to Japan three more times, and during the last trip was able to take her family. Terri spent the first two years of her college education at the Eastman School of Music, studying with Zvi Zeitlin. She then transferred to Pacific Union College in Northern California where she graduated with a degree in Music Performance. While there, she studied with David Able and LeRoy Peterson. She has been a member of the Corning and Santa Rosa Symphonies. Post college, Mrs. Henningson continued to further her pedagogy studies with William Starr, Craig Timmerman, Alice Joy Lewis, Michelle Higa George Linda Case and Teri Einfeld. Terri has maintained a private violin studio for over 30 years, and has taught lessons in Dunwoody for the past 24. She served on the board of the Suzuki Association of Georgia for 11 years as the chairman for the Graduation Concert events. Ms. Henningson also freelances in Atlanta, playing for parties, weddings and special events. She is also occasionally called to do studio work and to play her electric violin. She plays regularly at Dunwoody Baptist Church and Misty Creek Church in the Atlanta area. While her children were attending the Westminster Schools, she was on staff as a chamber music coach and small group teacher for the lower, middle and upper schools for 10 years. She continues her relationship with the staff as a sub, when needed. When she’s not teaching, Terri enjoys spending time with her husband and two grown sons. Traveling and painting are also on top of the list of favorite past times. Her painting, “Four Seasons II” is featured as her profile photo.
