DEVIN COPFER is a performer, recording musician, registered Suzuki teacher, and arts entrepreneur based in Columbus, OH. Graduate of the Ohio State University [BM Violin Performance, BA Arts Management ’14].
Devin is the co-founder, director, and violinist in Chamber Brews, a chamber music ensemble committed to playing music by diverse voices and breaking down the fourth wall in classical music. She also serves as violinist in Columbus’ Janus String Quartet with the professor of cello at the Ohio State University Mark Rudoff, violist Nancy Nehring, and violinist Kelsey Shaheen.
Devin’s strong commitment to Suzuki violin teaching is revealed in her philosophy of nurturing responsibility and respect. She follows Dr. Suzuki’s notion that truly, everyone can learn, that “any child has the possibility to be musically inclined,” as long as we nurture a love of learning and creativity at home as well as in the studio.
Devin believes that through music lessons, we not only get to know our playing, but we get to know ourselves. Through the violin we will cover work ethic, responsibility to music and learning, enrolling the family, the joy of hard work, and so much more.
Devin and her students understand that success doesn’t come from outcome, but rather from the journey.
