About Me

My name is Faith Church, and I have been playing the violin since I was 9, when my first teacher was my older sister Kate. Over the years, I have studied under two different instructors: Nan Drum, and Dr. Nancy Bargerstock, Professor of Violin at Appalachian State University. In May 2019, I graduated with a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance from the Hayes School of Music at Appalachian State University.

I have been playing weddings as a solo violinist for a number of years, and have also helped organize duos, trios, and quartets for weddings, church performances, and other gigs.

I have been teaching violin and piano lessons for seven years, and also teach music theory and music history. It is exciting to pass along the love of music to young people and impress upon them the techniques I’ve learned.

I grew up in Valle Crucis, NC, and lived there for most of my life. My husband Isaac and I married in December 2018, and we now live in Boone, NC. In our free time, we enjoy cooking together, walking on the greenway, hiking, spending time with family, playing soccer, and watching movies.
