Tammy Suh Meinershagen is a uniquely versatile musician skilled in both violin and piano. Originally from Chicago, IL, she began lessons at age 5 by recommendation of a preschool teacher who recognized how much she enjoyed music. Tammy performed her first concert with the Rockford Symphony Orchestra after eight months of playing the violin, and at age 9, performed in a piano master class for world-renowned pianist Gyorgy Sebok. She grew up immersed in music, performing, competing, participating in chamber music ensembles and orchestras, and giving back to the community by playing in churches, nursing homes and citywide special events. Tammy later earned her B.M. in Piano Performance at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL studying with Dr. David Kaiserman. Tammy's lyrical style and thoughtful musicality on both instruments have captivated audiences in the US, Mexico, and Italy.
Currently Tammy is a piano and violin teacher in Frisco, TX and performs as "Frisco Violin Girl," branching out of the classical box into the world of pop, jazz, and even metal on her red electric violin! Tammy is also a tireless advocate of the arts and serves as President Elect of Frisco Music Teachers Association, PR/Marketing Chair of Texas Music Teachers Association, arts representative in Frisco’s 2014 Citizen Bond Committee, and member of McKinney's Arts and Music Guild.
Tammy is a mover and shaker with a gift for connecting with others through her music, writing, and passion for the arts. She spearheaded efforts to bring Classical Open Mic to Frisco with hundreds in attendance, and she recently helped start a program called “Celebrating Music In Our Schools” at the local mall, featuring bands, orchestras, choirs, ensembles, and soloists in grades K-12 from the surrounding school districts. Her next big goal is to gather support for building a Performing Arts Center in Frisco, the fastest growing city in the nation!
Tammy believes that the arts is essential to the health of every individual and has dedicated her life to bringing it to others in every way she can.
