Liesl McWhorter is an Atlanta native who has been seriously studying music for over twenty years. She first began her music studies at age six under Atlanta Symphony Orchestra retiree, Pat Vas Dias. Following her involvement in multiple youth symphonies throughout middle and high school, she continued her studies and received a Bachelor’s degree in Music Performance from Agnes Scott College, a university home to Georgia’s first female Rhodes’ scholar, as well as Pulitzer prize and Oscar winners. Currently, Liesl teaches and also performs in and around the Atlanta area with multiple symphonies and acclaimed artists. As a product of the Suzuki Method, she continues to use the methods she was brought up on, while also implementing her own personal style of teaching and training in order to help students grow in skill and musical ability. The process is twofold: having developed an appreciation of the unique ability in each child, she also plays an active role in using listening, repetition, and positive reinforcement to help each student grow.
