Lynn Rubier-Capron holds B.M. and M.M. degrees in Violin Performance from Converse College and Florida State University, respectively. She also earned a M. Div. degree from Columbia Theological Seminary.
Lynn began teaching violin using the Suzuki Method in 1985, and has been teaching ever since. A teacher who loves to learn, Lynn is constantly looking for ways to expand the wisdom and range of her teaching. From summer Suzuki institutes to close collaboration with other teachers, her teaching stays fresh and interesting both to her and also to her students. Lynn brings several areas of interest into her teaching – violin pedagogy, the Suzuki emphasis of “nurture by love” and the study of human development. Children and adults of different ages bring different gifts to their process of learning and Lynn weaves that kind of knowledge into her teaching.
Lynn's professional performances began in college when she played in the Asheville symphony, continued after graduate school with the South Carolina Symphony, Chamber Orchestra and Opera Orchestra. When she moved to Ames Iowa (to teach 55 students) she played in the orchestra in that town. After earning her M. Div. degree, she and her husband moved to Rochester, New York where she played chamber music with colleagues at the Hochstein School of Music and Dance. After moving to central New Jersey in 2008, Lynn enjoys playing with the Symphonia Nova.
Lynn won the Scottish fiddle competition at the Grandfather Mountain Scottish games in 2006 and cut a CD of Scottish Fiddle music with guitarist, Toni Elderkin in 2007 entitled, "Fast and Dirty." Her Celtic music is mostly just for fun, but from time to time Lynn teaches fiddle music to her students, who seem to enjoy the variety.
