With the start of the New Year, we are launching our new blog, First Fridays with Uptown Violins! You can check us out at the beginning of every month to read up on all things violin. Topics range from pedagogy and product reviews, to the relationship between music, the visual arts, and literature. You can catch up on some of our highlight performances, including playing at the Country Music Awards, giving a recital in Paris, France, soloing with the Wichita Youth Symphony, and even performing at the Dallas Cowboys Halftime show! Whether you are a fellow violinist or a music aficionado, we hope you join us First Fridays for some Uptown fun!
First Fridays with Uptown Violins is hosted by Ashley Rescot, Director of Public Relations. Ashley received her Bachelor of Music from Baylor University, as well as minors in French and English. She taught English as a Fulbright scholar in France for a year, and then obtained her Master’s Degree in French Literature at the University of Kansas. She has taught French to all ages, including a Maman et Moi baby French class, as well as collegiate French levels I-IV. She teaches her own private violin studio and performs throughout the Midwest. Research interests include the relationship between music education and language acquisition, as well as the connection between music and other forms of artistic expression.
