David Strom completed his B.M. in violin performance at the Hartt School where he was privileged to study under Katie Lansdale and receive coaching from the Emerson String Quartet as well as the late David Wells.
David went on to receive his M.M. from the University of Maryland in violin performance with a Suzuki Pedagogy specialization, where he first met Ronda Cole and felt immediately the synergy and spark that enliven their partnership today at the Northern Virginia Suzuki Music School.
David is in demand as a clinician and lecturer at workshops and Institutes throughout the country as a teacher and a registered Suzuki Teacher Trainer. David’s dream for all of his students is the development of higher-level functioning- sensitivity, expressiveness, persistence, communication, leadership, compassion, and empathy through the medium of the violin.
When not playing or teaching, David is also a composer and arranger in a wide variety of mediums. David’s most important job is that of father to his beloved daughter Juliet—the light of his life.
