About Elizabeth Devereux

I am a violinist who teaches and performs in the Philadelphia area.  My students range in age from 3-year-old Suzuki students to retired adults.  My musical interests and inspirations range from Mozart to Mos Def, with many composers and songwriters in between.

My job revolves around the following questions: Why is classical music such foreign territory to most people in our society?  How can I help develop citizens who are passionate about and invested in the arts?

I am a Teaching Artist with Play On, Philly!, an after-school orchestral program based at St. Francis de Sales School in West Philadelphia which promotes social progress through music education.  I am also the Suzuki String Coordinator at Rowan University Prep, in Glassboro, NJ, where I teach private violin lessons, Suzuki group classes, and coach chamber ensembles.

  1. Thanks for the wonderful blogpost!

  2. Were you performing with “Empty Hats” at the PA Renaissance Faire the weekend of 10/6-7/2012? If so, I saw the show and you were wonderful. I’ll watch for future performances.

    • Hi Fred, Thanks for visiting SoundStringS. I think you saw my friend and colleague Liz Cary performing with Empty Hats. She’s a great violinist–I always enjoy performing with her! I’ll pass along your compliments her way.
