Amy McGuire has been teaching strings for 40 years. She loves teaching all genres of music, but as a violinist, of course, strings are her passion. Her daily quest since 2011 is to serve the needs of the Visual and Performing Arts Department of the Panama-Buena Vista Union School District. She helped build the District "Strolling Strings" program into a solid educational opportunity for students.

Thank you for your dedication to string education, Amy!
