About The Directors:

Monica Thiriot, FSYO String Education Coordinator: Monica began playing the violin with the Suzuki Method when she was 6 years old.  She graduated from all 10 levels by the time she was 14, and two years later, she received her first Suzuki training to become a teacher.  As her private studio grew, she received additional Suzuki teacher training from John Kendall and Jeanne Grover.  One of her favorite things to do is to put together groups where youth can create music together and perform throughout the community.  Her groups have performed at many festivals, fundraisers, and other community events in New York (West Point Youth String Club), Maryland (Suitland Strings), North Carolina (Hope Mills/Fayetteville area), and Texas (San Antonio).  She is excited to return to Fayetteville and work with the Fayetteville Academy and Fayetteville Symphony Orchestra in creating a new youth program for this area.  Monica graduated from the University of Utah where she was able to study music and receive her degree in Elementary Education.  She is in her 3rd season of playing the violin with the Fayetteville Symphony, and has 4 children who also play the violin.  Her family can be seen around town performing for the Arts Council, the LaFayette Society, and at different fundraisers.

Laurel Wachtler, String Sinfonietta Coach: Laurel Wachtler, violinist, has taught private lessons for eight years in her private studio, as well as Snyder Music Academy, and Edwards Music. She has been the instructor for the violin classes at First Impressions Academy for three years. Her students have participated in the Middle School Youth Orchestra (MSYO), Cumberland County Youth Orchestra (CCYO), Junior Eastern Regionals, (JERO) as well as Fayetteville Symphony Youth Orchestra. Several students were selected for the finals and have won prizes in the Kiwanis Talent Show.
