Sylvia Wehrs is an established violinist and Suzuki violin instructor in Cleveland, OH with a Master's Degree in Violin Performance and Suzuki Pedagogy from the Cleveland Institute of Music. She teaches through the Music Settlement and Laurel School, as well as maintaining a private studio of over twenty-five students with ages ranging from 3 year-olds to adults. A frequent performer, Ms. Wehrs performs regularly with the Akron Symphony and Firelands Symphony, as well as a chamber musician and soloist in various venues from concert halls to hospitals.
As a Suzuki teacher certified through the Suzuki Association of the Americas, Ms. Wehrs believes that every child deserves the opportunity to learn music at a high level, and every child can excel when provided the correct environment. To further this vision, Ms. Wehrs created the Cleveland Harare Music Exchange, a summer program in Harare, Zimbabwe that seeks to bring musical guidance to the children of Harare through Suzuki lessons and high- level performances.
During the summers, Ms. Wehrs has participated in the Bowdoin International Music Festival, National Repertory Orchestra, and Music Inspire Africa, a life-changing program that allowed her to share her passion for performing and teaching with the people of South Africa and Zimbabwe. Ms. Wehrs looks forward to engaging with other diverse cultures and students as a member of the Global Leaders Program in the coming year.
