The Multifaceted Career: Breana Bauman
Wed October 30 @ 12:00 pm
Longy School of Music of Bard College is proud to present The Multifaceted Career Speaker Series featuring conversations with musicians who defy categorization. As an essential component of Longy’s career coaching program, this series fosters an exploration of how we (re)define individual success in our diverse and growing field.
Acclaimed by the New York Times for “excellent work throughout” as concertmaster at Tanglewood Music Center, Breana Bauman brings the perspective of an accomplished musician to imagine and guide a child’s playing to its full potential. She believes every child deserves a great beginning from an enthusiastic, extraordinary performer.
A former Suzuki kid, Breana studied Suzuki Pedagogy and Violin Performance with Steve Rose in a Master’s program at the Cleveland Institute of Music, following a Bachelor of Music from Oberlin Conservatory. She moved to Boston in 2012 to study with BSO concertmaster, Malcolm Lowe and following a nerve injury, worked with Bayla Keyes and the Muir Quartet. Her Suzuki trainers include Kimberly Meier-Sims, Ed Sprunger, Ed Kreitman and Christophe Bossuat (director of the European Suzuki Association).
In 2014, Breana founded Cambridge Suzuki School of Music and continues to enjoy working with a studio of beautiful musicians at various levels and ages. She is an active member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas and formerly, vice-president of its chapter affiliate, Suzuki:MA, a group which organizes the Massachusetts Suzuki Festival. In Summer 2017, she joined the faculty of BUTI’s newest endeavor, the Junior Strings Intensive, at Tanglewood, coaching chamber music. Read more at cambridgesuzuki.com.
