Allison Stringer 

Allison Stringer holds a Masters degree in Violin Performance from Codarts University for the Arts, studying under Gordan Nikolić, and an Honours Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance from Wilfrid Laurier University, studying under the Penderecki String Quartet. Allison began the violin at the age of 2 ½, later taking up the piano and viola, and has been ensconced in music since. She is an active performer specializing in classical, contemporary and folk music and has appeared in festivals and toured in an orchestral setting throughout North America and Europe. Most notably she has performed in the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Gergiev Festival Orchestra in Rotterdam, the Doelen Ensemble, as a soloist premiering jazz inspired new compositions with the Fifty Fiddles Orchestra and as a soloist premiering The Lost and the Damned by Canadian composer Adam Hakooz at De Doelen, Rotterdam. While living in Canada she has worked as a session musician in the folk and indie music scene and has performed with internationally renowned artists such as Amanda Palmer.
While Allison is a trained and active performer, her desire to promote music to future generations has led her into the field of music education. She has taught as a private music instructor since 2009 and has lectured at the college and university level as well as a violin teacher at St. Mary’s Music School and the Yehudi Menuhin School. Allison is extremely excited to be taking up the post of Director of Music of the Lochaber Music School in Fort William.
She is also concurrently working on a PhD at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland studying the Scottish compositions of Alexander Campbell Mackenzie (1847-1935).
