Nia Dewberry is a graduate of The Ohio State University where she completed a Master of Music degree in Violin Performance. In addition to her studies at Ohio State, Ms. Dewberry also holds a Bachelor of Music (BM) degree from Bowling Green State University.

Nia started playing violin at the age of 11, and from there continued her studies at Stivers School for the Arts until she was 18. She has won multiple violin scholarship competitions, including the Dr. Paul Makara Competition (Bowling Green) and the Dayton Music Club Scholarship Competition. She has performed in multiple pit orchestras, such as The Muse Machine orchestra and both BGSU and OSU Opera orchestras.

Nia’s goal is to “enrich the lives of children in underserved areas through music.” She enjoys teaching both children and adult beginners. Nia not only wants to teach her students classical music, but jazz, rock and roll, and country. “I strive to teach musicians the type of music they want to play. It’s always so much fun to watch the joy on a musician’s face when they are playing their favorite piece!”
