My name is Annie Ursu, and I’m 31 years old. I was born and raised in Indiana, PA, and I’ve played the violin for 23 years. I graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania with a BFA degree in Violin Performance in 2013. I began teaching the violin when I was 19 years old through IUP’s String Project program. Through this program, I’ve worked with students of all ages/ability levels! Besides teaching and playing the violin, I also have a MA degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), and I spent some time teaching English in Japan. I love teaching, and I’ve been very fortunate to work with so many different people from around the world. I’m extremely excited to begin working with Maestro Minds Music Studio, and I can’t wait to meet everyone!
