Chloe Helene Groth, violinist, is a graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, where she earned a Master of Music in Teaching and a Bachelor of Music in Performance. Chloe has trained in Suzuki Violin Books 1-6 under the guidance of Ronda Cole, Suzuki Violin Book 7 with Judy Bossuat-Gallic, and additional coursework with Cathryn Lee.
As an instructor, Chloe invests her time, abilities, and heart into nurturing the talent and heart within each child. She believes that through the lens of the Suzuki method, learning the violin can be a vehicle for developing some of the most important skills in life: connecting with another person, being mindful in the present moment, building integrity, expressing oneself, prioritizing play and discovery in the learning process, persevering and problem solving through challenges, strengthening family relationships, finding joy in challenges, deepening one's sensitivity to art, and infusing love into what we share with the world.
Chloe has maintained a private teaching studio for over twelve years and has experience teaching all ages and ability levels as well as early-childhood classes in both public and private school settings. She previously served as Department Chair of the Suzuki Program at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music and worked closely with the leadership of the Suzuki Association of Wisconsin. She is a frequent orchestral performer and currently plays as a substitute with the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra and the Versipel New Music Collective. She has also played with the Wisconsin Philharmonic and the Festival City Symphony in Wisconsin. At Oberlin Conservatory, she served as Concertmaster of the Oberlin Chamber Orchestra and the Contemporary Music Ensemble.
A versatile musician, Chloe enjoys providing music at special events such as weddings and parties. She also has experience as a Mariachi violinist and performing with a rock band. She prioritizes a high level of violin playing and a dedication to performance while also leading a vibrant and supportive Suzuki studio family.
