Eugénie Marie Edmonds has been teaching Orchestra in AISD since 1983. Her teaching is most influenced by Shinichi Suzuki. Eugénie has registered all ten violin books with the Suzuki Association of the Americas. For the gift of music, Eugénie would like to thank her teachers: Carol Schaub the orchestra director at ACS in Beirut, Lebanon, Raymond Harvey the choir director at Northfield Mt. Hermon, Hazel Cheilek, viola instructor for Catholic University and Leonard Posner, violin professor at UT Austin. She hopes to pass their gift on to her own students for many years to come.
