Hello! And thank you for checking out our website and blog! We are super excited to share our weekly adventures at the studio with you via this blog!
"Perhaps it is music that will save the world!" - Pablo Casals
If you haven't perused our website yet, make sure you take the time to do so! There are links with more information on us as individual teachers and what we are all about! In short, we hope to reach out to the Central Massachusetts community and help music touch as many lives, young and old, as possible! We hope to continue the tradition of music changing lives, which goes way beyond just becoming a musician!
Sylvia (Thayer) DiCrescentis first started Vivo Strings music studio in 2013 to have a location to teach violin, viola, cello, and piano lessons. After four years, she has built a strong community of musicians who attend the studio weekly for private lessons. In 2016, Sylvia reunited with Kathryn (Skudera) Haddad and Brittany Stockwell during the Whitinsville Christian School Strings' 35th Anniversary celebration. Sylvia, Kathryn, and Brittany played together in the WCS Strings program for over ten years. During that time they participated in countless recitals, chamber and orchestra concerts, Massachusetts Central Districts and All-State Music Festivals, as well as going on several orchestra tours to the Dominican Republic and Louisiana. After reuniting, Sylvia asked Kathryn and Brittany to join Vivo Strings as violin and viola teachers. After months and months of planning and organizing, this week officially marked the start of the Vivo Strings studio family consisting of Sylvia, Kathryn, and Brittany as music teachers! But the hard work continues as we are building more classes and more opportunities for current students and future students at the studio!
Kathryn and Brittany are currently looking for new violin and viola students to fill their schedules at the studio! If you are interested in lessons, for either yourself or your child or both, please make sure to check out Kathryn and Brittany's teaching styles and backgrounds! These pages can be accessed via the home page of our website! Hover over +ABOUT on our Home Page and then click OUR TEACHERS and you will see links for each teacher. Please contact us for specific days and times for scheduling!
We are currently working on our YouTube website, which will include videos of all sorts. At the moment we are working on video interviews of each teacher for you to get to know us better, so please make sure to stay tuned and look for those on the site soon!
In the near future we will be uploading tutorial videos, with tips for practicing and reviews of products!
As always, thank you for visiting our blog and make sure to stay tuned for future happenings at Vivo Strings!
