Arlo Adams is a Suzuki trained violinist, teaching and performing throughout the Arizona and Colorado. Originally from Flagstaff, Arizona, he grew up in the shadow of the mountains, and moving to Denver hasn’t changed that very much!
He recently received his Bachelor of Music degree in violin performance from the University of Denver, under the instruction of Professor Mark Rush. In his collegiate years, he has performed professionally with some fantastic musical organizations, including the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra, and has won several honors and awards from the University of Denver and the University of Arizona as a chamber musician. With an interest in new music, he has premiered new orchestral and chamber works, and he performs regularly with the University of Denver’s modern music ensemble. In addition to this, he is passionate about mixing the arts and has performed with electronics, dance companies, and in numerous staged shows.
Along with his studies, Arlo has been an avid violin teacher and mentor. Drawing upon his many years of experience with the Suzuki method, he teaches violin to students of all ages. Along with the Suzuki method, he uses a variety of other techniques and method books, to tailer lessons to each student’s own specific needs. He believes that students will progress the fastest with a strong foundation in technique, continuous lessons and regular practice—but that the teacher must inspire and motivate them to explore this wonderful world of music! Arlo brings his enthusiasm and passion for the violin to the studio, and works to make sure his students get the most out of their violin lessons. For him, teaching and watching a student grow is one of the most enjoyable experiences, and to be able to spark a passion for music is an honor!
