Welcome to the private studio of Turid Gaedeke-Riegel.

Turid has taught violin and viola privately in the Columbus area for over 19 years.  She specializes in traditional instruction: beginner, intermediate-advanced levels; the transition from Suzuki to traditional instruction; rehabilitation of playing fundamentals; and setting up the beginner correctly from the start.  Her students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and playing levels.  Many of her students are/have been members of The Columbus Symphony Youth Orchestras Program including:  Junior, Chamber, Cadet, and Youth Orchestras.  After high school, her students have gone on to pursue careers in music, business, science, psychology, nursing, and medicine. Students are eligible for acceptance into the studio through an initial interview/audition.

“The biggest gift I can give my students is the gift of music, of learning how to play an instrument well, how to express oneself through music, and discover future possibilities for musical enjoyment whether as hobbyists, supporters, or professionals.”
