      Get to know Ms. Lydia Gilbert

      Living, breathing, and surrounding myself in the world of music was the inspiration that drove me to pursue a BA in Music at the University of Wyoming. With 7 years of musical teaching experience, I am passionate about encouraging students' musical development by providing them with the fundamentals necessary to enable self-exploration, helping them to find their unique voice!

      Using the Suzuki Method and some knowledge from Paul Rolland's String Pedagogy, my goal is to provide students with a beneficial learning environment that is geared towards each of their individual requirements. I believe in the potential of all ages and encourage students to experiment with various musical styles. My goal is to assist them in reaching their full potential and embarking on a lifelong musical adventure filled with joy and inspiration.
