About Ashley T

Ashley is a musician with more than 15 years of experience playing various instruments. Everything started when she picked up a violin for the first time when she was little. From there, she was determined to learn about every kind of stringed instrument out there. Ranging everywhere from viola and cello, to piano and even a hand-crafted cigar box 3-string banjo. 

She grew up playing the classical way, playing in dozens of orchestras and ensembles in her youth. She garnered herself to the National High School Orchestra award when she was a senior in high school. From then on, she went on to become the President of The Elgin Community College Audio Recording Society, for her time earning her Associates in Audio Production. She then went on to get her Bachelors in Music Composition and Business from Columbia College in Chicago. She now composes and plays for various bands and even her own band, all while handling logo designs and advertisements. She plays routine shows across the Chicago-land area with her band on the weekends. 

Ashley mostly enjoys every kind of music, but with strong Celtic roots, she really enjoys Folk music and Fiddling in her free time. She's also an avid painter and enjoys panting portraits of people in her spare time when she's not teaching. 

She loves sharing her love of music with others and hopes to share it with as many people as possible.
