A native of Detroit, Michigan, Stephanie Bork came to the violin at a young age through a children’s television show and has been playing ever since. She received her Bachelor of Music in violin from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and a Master of Music from The University of Michigan. Her primary instructors have included Hai-Xin Wu, Piotr Milewski, and Aaron Berofsky.
Stephanie has been teaching students of all ages for over 15 years. Her students have received high marks at Solo and Ensemble, won seats in the region orchestra in their school district, and earned first chair seats in their school orchestras. They have also played in the Houston Youth Orchestras. Stephanie’s teaching is personalized to each student. She works with her students to identify strengths and weaknesses and give the student the tools he or she needs to practice effectively and efficiently at home. Her goal is not only to train up solid musicians, but to invest her students with the same love for music that she herself has!
Ms. Bork has also played with a number of symphony orchestras and opera companies, including the Houston Symphony, the Houston Grand Opera, the Houston Ballet, the Toledo Symphony, The Lansing Symphony Orchestra, and the Ann Arbor Symphony. She is also a substitute violinist with the Houston Symphony, the Houston Grand Opera, and the Houston Ballet. When she is not playing the violin Ms. Bork enjoys hiking, traveling, and trying out new recipes.
