Shannon has been studying and performing violin since age 8. She graduated with a B.A. in Music Performance from Cleveland State University in 1999. Since then, she has been teaching violin at the Galloway School, the Lovett School, and out of her home. One of SSM’s longest tenured, and popular teachers, Shannon is always striving to get the very best out of her students through positive and enthusiastic reinforcement in her lessons. Aside from her teaching duties, Shannon also performs around Atlanta doing gigs as a soloist, with classical quartets, and with rock bands; including her own rock-funk band Dynagroove. Her aim is to introduce the voice, soul, and gift of music through the violin to her students and their audience.
Shannon is also the Violinist and vocalist in the SSM Staff Rock Band, “RADIO DAYS”. Check out a clip of Radio Days performing at the Sandy Springs Festival Sept. 23rd, 2017.
