Mallory Carnes recently graduated with a master’s degree from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music where she studied Viola Performance with Stephen Wyrczynski of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Her recent recitals have included the masterworks for viola, including Bartok’s Concerto for Viola and Orchestra and Brahms’s E-flat Sonata for Viola and Piano. During her master’s degree, she taught as a beginning violin instructor at Fairview Elementary School and as a teacher in the IU String Academy. Prior to attending IU, she received her dual bachelor’s degrees in Music and Chinese (Mandarin) from Emory University in Atlanta, GA, where she also taught as part of the Atlanta Music Project. Mallory is currently pursuing auditions for professional symphony orchestra viola positions and is an associate member of the
Chicago Civic Orchestra. Her chamber music experience includes coaching and performing in ensembles ranging from string quartets to oboe and clarinet trios with piano. She has performed
in venues across the United States and Asia.
I don’t have any age or experience restrictions! I have most experience teaching beginners, but I would love to work with older students who are considering a future as a musician or looking
into auditions for all-state, college, or other high-level experiences.
