Playing With Your Heart Strings

Written By: Stormie Cueto

Stringed instruments are some of the most complex to play. For example, the violin is made up of over 70 different pieces of wood that are put together to form the modern violin. At first glance, the idea of playing a stringed instrument may be intimidating. But at VIBE, there is the perfect team of instructors to make the experience a positive and memorable one.

Starting out at the University of Idaho getting a degree in Violin Performance under Ferenc Cseszko, he later transferring to Boise State University under Maggie Snow and Craig Purdy, and now is pursuing a Masters of Music at The California Institute of the Arts as a Violin Performance and Composition major with a minor in Jazz Studies under Mark Menzies and Lorenz Gamma.
