Thank you so much to the Ashley Willwerth Foundation for contributing to our education at the Virginia Suzuki Institute this summer! We are husband-and-wife violin teachers. We both received teacher training, and our son, Noah, was a student!
Our family has been blessed by the Ashley Willwerth Foundation and its dedication to assist string students seeking instruction in their studies. This summer, our daughter had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study viola and music composition at Interlochen Center for the Arts in Northern Michigan. While there, she was surrounded by faculty, counselors, and students passionate about the arts, all of whom supported one another in their talents and gifts. This uplifting and encouraging environment carried her through some of her biggest challenges and assignments as she grew in her music studies. She was assigned to write for the wind symphony and advanced string quartet. She participated in the viola institute and studied viola performance. She was also a summer arts concerto competition finalist!
Thank you to all who contribute to this very generous foundation in honor of Ashley. We are honored to be recipients of such a blessing.
Hello, I wanted to write on behalf of my daughter, Ava, and thank you for the contribution your foundation made to her studies at Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival this summer. She made an amazing amount of progress! Thank you again for your support and help. May your foundation continue to make a difference in the lives of young musicians!
