Denice is Director of The Denver Suzuki Strings Program. Denices' Students participate in weekly Suzuki Group classes, Must complete evaluations for, and perform Book recitals from Suzuki books 2 and above. All families must participate as a parent involved entity of her program. Students perform yearly group and solo recitals as part of their DSS requirement.

Along with being a Suzuki Student in her youth and a Suzuki teacher for 20 years, Denice is also the President of the Colorado Old Time Fiddlers Association. As such, Denice has organized the association by recruiting parents of her students to serve and volunteer.This year COTFA has taken on the bold endeavor of presenting the first Certified Fiddle contest in Colorado, The Colorado Rocky Mountain Fiddle Championships.

Denice's Program has 70 students enrolled 40 of which are her own students.

Included in her program is Suzuki Teacher  Ricky Selman.

Denice is very active in fiddling and has many students who place in the top 5 - 20 at The National Fiddle Championships.

As a 1st generation US Suzuki student,Learning under the tutelage of Shirleen McMicheal and John Kendall Denice   received most of her training informally, as few organized teaching programs were available to her. She likes to refer to her training as being obtained through the school of "hard knocks".

Denice has received the same type of training in fiddling although she does hold the distinction of being awarded a Master Apprentice grant through the National Endowment for the Arts.

Denice is also a past two time Colorado State Adult Fiddle Champion

Karen teaches   Suzuki violin.

I have my master's in violin performance and string pedagogy from University of Oregon School of Music..there I studied suzuki pedagogy with Shelley Rich.
I  have been teaching Suzuki for only 3 years. I have summer training through book 3, and plan to go every summer I love it so much!
I teach Suzuki Violin at University of South Florida where I have 12 students.
I also teach public elementary and middle school strings in Hillsborough County (Tampa).
I am desperately trying to start a Suzuki Program at Tampa Downtown Partnership elementary school.
All of the students that go there have parents that work in the city so they are close by so I am trying my hardest to make it happen but it is my first year teaching in public school so hopefully I make it out alive at the end of the year!

Maxine runs the email list "Suzuki Chat"which she was recently recognized for in the American Suzuki Journal.

Maxine Komlos, nee Moller  was born in New Zealand in 1939. Her parents were of Scandinavian extraction. She studied violin at the Auckland University and in 1960 - 1 at the Adelaide University. She married violist Peter Komlos. The pair played in orchestras in Tasmania, Germany and England. After their return to Tasmania in 1970 Peter was awarded a Churchill Fellowship to study the Suzuki Method with Shinichi Suzuki and with William Starr.
Peter began Australia's first true Suzuki group, using very young children with total parent participation. Maxine acted as Suzuki Mother to their 5 year old child Lesley. When Peter died suddenly at the age of 37, Maxine and their elder daughter Alinta continued his Suzuki teaching. A few years later the family moved to Adelaide, South Australia where Maxine established the Suzuki Violin School and founded the Suzuki Talent Education Association.

I majored in music at Western Washington University and at the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College, studying privately with a professor from the Manhattan School of Music. I have performed everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the local coffee shop!
For the last ten years I have been teaching violin and piano to a wide range of students. I have experience with the very young (3 years) and with adult students as well.


I am an animal lover and have two cats and a dog in my studio.

recent highlights include: First stand of the InterSchool Orchestras Concert Orchestra. Several students accepted, after audition, into LaGuardia High School for the Arts.
