Angela Schlessman has been teaching the violin since 1993 in the Mechanicsburg, PA area. She opened an additional studio in Adams County in 2011. At 3 ½ years old she began her studies under Hwa Sun Loh later switching to Pam deWall Wiley. By age 7 she set her goal to be a violin teacher. Not wavering from her decision she started teacher training at age 15 knowing she would have to repeat those classes because she was not yet 18. She started teaching at age 16. She continues to further her education each year to bring fresh ideas, techniques and approaches to her studios. Her teachers have been the top teacher trainers in the Suzuki method; Joan Krzywicki, Liz Arbus, Martha Shackford, Elizabeth Stuen-Walker, Marilyn O’Boyle, Ronda Cole, Sharon Miller, Thomas Wermuth, Nancy Jackson and Roger Stieg. Angela is a registered teacher with SAA (Suzuki Associations of the Americas) and has taken training from ECC (Every Child Can) through book 7. 

She was also introduced to the O’Connor Method at its inception in 2009. She has taken training courses in this method. Her studio families enjoy the variety of music she offers in her studio. Angela is always looking for ways to further her education for herself and her students.
