Violin, Viola, Suzuki Strings (Program Director)
A native of Davis, CA, Rebecca Reed-Lunn has a Bachelor of Music with High Distinction as well as a Performer Diploma from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. Her teachers include Alan de Veritch, Yuval Gotlibovich, and Lynne Richburg, and she studied pedagogy with Mimi Zweig and Brenda Brenner of the Indiana University String Academy as well as Cathryn Lee of the Suzuki Music Studio of San Francisco. Before moving to the Bay Area, her previous teaching positions have included viola professor and pre-college violin and viola instructor at Western Kentucky University and Assistant to the Director and violin and viola instructor at Suzuki Maui. Rebecca combines Suzuki with Paul Rolland methods and believes strongly in the Suzuki principle that every child can learn to play at a high level. She at times supplements Suzuki repertoire, and assigns post-Suzuki repertoire, according to the student’s technical and expressive needs as well as their musical interests. In addition to her students at Crowden, Rebecca teaches for the Holy Names University Preparatory Music Program in Oakland and Harmony Project San Francisco Bay Area, an El Sistema-modeled program.
