Bonnie Yeager, violin and viola, brings together a passion for teaching with her accomplishments as a performer to teach students across a broad range of ages and abilities. Her primary focus as a teacher is to open the world of musical expression to her students and build string-playing technique that allows that expression to grow. She remains committed to providing a high-quality learning experience that is accessible and affordable.
Trained as a Pedagogue in the Suzuki Method, Ms. Yeager teaches technique classes, group classes, and private lessons during and after school in several locations in the greater Chicago area and in Indiana. Her students have won coveted positions in Youth Orchestras and All-State Orchestras and have been awarded scholarships and other prizes in music. Even more importantly, her students have developed a love of music and pushed themselves to be their very best!
Having held positions with orchestras across North America won through competitive auditions, Ms. Yeager has performed with such orchestras as the Phoenix Symphony, Edmonton Symphony, South Dakota Symphony and the Cleveland Orchestra. She currently holds positions with the Elgin Symphony and Milwaukee Ballet Orchestra and can be heard performing across the Midwest.
