Rebecca Henry has developed one of the premier pre-college string programs at the Peabody Preparatory of Johns Hopkins University over the last thirty years, led by the philosophy that developing musicians thrive with high level training that involves a deep connection between physical and musical skill and fluidity within a challenging, supportive and joyful environment. In 2007 she received funding from the Starling Foundation to create the Peabody Pre-Conservatory Violin Program, which trains eight serious teens.
She performs with the Washington Chamber Orchestra and faculty chamber ensembles, has premiered and commissioned numerous works for herself and her students over the years, and is co-founder of ViolinPractice.com, an innovative website designed to support students, parents and teachers.
Ms. Henry also teaches Violin and Viola Pedagogy at the Peabody Conservatory and the University of Maryland and has given master classes and workshops around the US and abroad. Each June she returns to her alma mater, where studied with Georges Janzer, Mimi Zweig and Kim Kashkashian, to teach at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Retreat for Professional Violinists and Violists.
Her former violin and viola students are performing and teaching around the world and she is delighted to spend her first summer at HeifetzPEG!
