About Brittni

Dr. Brittni Brown is a sought-after violin pedagogue and artist-performer in Aspen, Colorado. She maintains a full studio, with the focus of transforming students into artists, and is an avid performer of solo and chamber music in the Roaring Fork Valley. She is co-director of Music for the Roaring Fork Youth Orchestras. She was recently featured on KDNK, a local Colorado radio station, concertizing and chatting about Beethoven.

Brown received her undergraduate and masters degrees with honors from the Cleveland Institute of Music, studying under William Preucil, former concertmaster of the Cleveland Orchestra. She went on to receive a doctorate in violin performance from the University of Texas under the tutelage of Brian Lewis.

She is a certified Suzuki teacher, having received her long-term training from Kimberly Meier-Sims at the Sato Suzuki Center. Brown frequently uses Eurhythmics, a method used to teach rhythm involving hands-on activities, during lessons.

Brown enjoys concertizing with her peers in chamber music recitals, and has had the privilege of being coached by renowned chamber musicians: Anton Nel, Peter Salaff, James Dunham, and members of the Miro and Cavani Quartets. She previously taught at Clavier-Werke Music School, Mentor High School, the CIM Preparatory Department, University of Texas String
Project, and Aspen Music Festival’s Beginning Strings Program. She also has played with numerous orchestras, most recently, the Canton Orchestra and the Austin Symphony.

I am an active advocate for each student to achieve their goals and dreams. I believe in creating a positive, safe, yet critical environment in which we can identify a student's strengths and points for progress. I help them to learn the steps they need to take to reach their greatest potential.
