Laurielle Warren

Strings Teacher


I earned my degree in viola performance from the University of Cincinnati's College Conservatory of Music in 2012, right before meeting my husband at a chamber music festival that summer in Petoskey (northern Michigan), a beautiful place near to my heart! We moved to Fort Worth in 2013, and I completed my Master's Degree in viola performance at TCU in 2015. While at TCU, I began teaching at the Fort Worth Youth Orchestra (FWYO) Suzuki school, and I've enjoyed teaching and training each year through the entire Suzuki repertoire. I've performed regularly with symphony orchestras across six states throughout the years, including a double concerto performance with my husband of the Max Bruch Concerto for Clarinet & Viola. But my most favorite job of all is being a mama to two sweet little ones, Christopher Stanley and May Eleanor.

Why do you choose to work at CCA? CCA provides an inspiring (and rare) environment where excellence and faith are expected and encouraged simultaneously! For someone in the performing arts world, it's incredibly encouraging to see Christian education prioritize the study of truly excellent music--a beautiful and worthy endeavor which reflects the perfect creativity of our God.

What is one fun fact about you? I am a member of JASNA, the Jane Austen Society of North America.

What is your favorite book of all time? This is an incredibly difficult question! Most of what I read is nonfiction, but in the fiction world, I would choose two: 1.) The Lord of the Rings trilogy by JRR Tolkien for its masterful, comprehensive approach to world-building and the most compelling storyline I've ever read, and 2.) any Jane Austen novel for its witty and simple commentary on the culture of the Regency period in England and a guaranteed happy ending.

What is one thing that can instantly make your day better? Friendliness—and of course flowers!

What do you like to do for fun? I love making afternoon tea and sealing handwritten cards with wax seal stamps.
