Last week I attended my daughter’s Suzuki Violin recital. (I won’t embarrass her by posting her playing, however proud of her I may be 😉

Linda Kummernuss has been teaching my daughter for 4 years. She has many very talented students – and it has been a pleasure to see my daughter and her other students talents grow over the years.


2015 Suzuki Violin Recital

Linda, however, rarely shares her talents with us, except in snippets during a lesson – never wanting to take away from her students. Today we got to see a different side of her, from teacher to performer.


Linda has started a new music adventure with a musical partner, Ken Preston. Ken is a guitar player who has been writing music and was looking for a partner. Together they write and perform original pieces. Ken starts the process with a song, words and vision and Linda adds to the magic the violin part to complete the ensemble. We were treated with an original composition, “Hold Me”, today.  Enjoy their performance here:

Ken Preston & Linda Kummernuss – “Hold Me”

It’s always fun to see how different people connect, create and grow.
