Bethany Bergman

My career as a teacher and performer has taken me from New York, to the Midwest, to Europe, to settle in Canada. As a member of the Internationally recognized Canadian Opera Comany Orchestra, and Principal 2nd Violin of both the Hamilton Philharmonic and Esprit Orchestra, I have been fortunate enough to work with and be mesmerized by some of world's most exceptional artists and performers. I bring a lifetime of passion and commitment to making music. My pedagogical training and experience began in Indiana University, and continues to my Suzuki training here in Ontario. I am an alumni of the GGS, have two budding musician children, and a full studio of wonderful students I learn from every day! I love sharing my joy and enthusiasm with students of all ages.
