      Angel Rhodes
      Angel Rhodes
      Music Teacher, Expert
      Location: Orchard Park, NY
      Speaks: English
      Instructs: Viola, Violin
      Education: I received a Bachelors of Music from the Eastman School of Music in 2019, and I graduated with a Masters in Music and Suzuki Certificate from the Lamont School of Music at the University of Denver in 2022.
      Performance Experience: I have performed as a featured soloist with orchestras and I play in multiple orchestras throughout the United States. I am a member of Fort Collins Symphony and associate principal second of Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra in Colorado, I have performed with Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra in Wyoming, and I regularly play in the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. I have also performed as a featured soloist with orchestras such as the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and the Orchard Park Symphony.
      Teaching Experience: I graduated from my Masters with a Suzuki Certificate and I actively teach as both a Suzuki teacher and a private violin/viola instructor. I have been a string teacher for Orchard Park Music Boosters and Orchard Park Suzuki Strings since 2019. In graduate school I was a Teaching Assistant and I would teach college students. In the spring of 2023, I was a Suzuki teacher at Buffalo Suzuki Strings. I believe in teaching students from all backgrounds so I also teach in community outreach programs.
      Teaching Philosophy: My goal as a teacher is to provide all of my students with a lifelong outlet through music. As everyone enjoys music differently, I seek to foster a love and passion for music personal to each student, and I strive to understand their goals in order to establish their desired success with their instrument. With a combination of detailed, focused teaching and caring communication, I believe that my students will have a beautiful future with music.

      Get to know Angel Rhodes

      I am first and foremost an avid music lover and I enjoy working in music in any capacity. I love teaching adults and children because it provides inspiration and meaning in my life, and I love to perform to improve my musicianship and technical skills.  Because of this, I am both a passionate teacher and performer. Pushing myself as a performer allows me to grow as a violinist which improves my knowledge and skills as a teacher, and teaching allows me to connect with a community and music in a deep meaningful level that motivates my growth as a performer. I have taught across the country as a Suzuki Violin teacher and a private violin and viola instructor. I have taught at Orchard Park Music Boosters and Orchard Park Suzuki Strings, Buffalo Suzuki Strings, and Lamont School of Music at the University of Denver. I also teach for community outreach programs so I am able to reach students from a variety of backgrounds. I am also a member of orchestras such as the Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra and Fort Collins Symphony in Colorado, and have performed with Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra in Wyoming. I continue to regularly play with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and have been a featured soloist for the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and the Orchard Park Symphony. In my free time, I love exploring the outdoors and observing wildlife.
