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 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 to impress upon them the techniques I’ve learned from my instructors, especially Dr. Nancy Bargerstock.
