My name is Laurabeth Roundy, owner of Arlington School of Violin in Arlington, WA 98223, offering private classical violin and viola, fiddle, and piano lessons.
I have been playing and performing classical violin for 28 years. Growing up, I took classical violin from several of the best local instructors. As a teen, I was concertmaster for the Everett Youth Symphony Orchestra, a member of the Seattle Youth Symphony, All Northwest Orchestra, and others. As an adult violinist, I am a member of Cascade Symphony Orchestra and have performed as a soloist at hundreds of wedding. I enjoy continuing my music education and continue to study classical piano, piano pedagogy, and cello with ongoing continuing professional education.
As a professional music instructor, I have been teaching private violin and piano lessons full time for 16 years and have taught well over 1000 students of all ages and backgrounds.
In 2005, I graduated with honors from Western Washington University with a Bachelors of Science in Mathematics. Although my first passion is music, ultimately I decided not to major in music in college and pursued a degree that would offer more flexibility, in case I ever wanted to go back to graduate school. Turns out, I love teaching music and would never want to do anything else!
I live in downtown Arlington, WA 98223 with my husband Joshua and our sons Mason and Bennett.
