​  Angela Schlessman:
          At 3 1/2 years old Angela started violin lessons under Hwa Sun Loh and then continued   studies with Pam deWall Wiley. When she was 7 years old, she had set her goal to be a violin teacher. Not wavering from her decision, she started Suzuki teacher training classes at age 15, and knowing she would have to repeat those classes because she was not 18 that did not deter her from pursuing her dreams of becoming a violin teacher. With those few classes behind her she started teaching in Cumberland County Mechanicsburg Pennsylvania September of 1993 right before her 16th birthday. She then began teaching in Adams County in 2011. Below is her Suzuki education training after she turned 18 years old.
