Kendra Vernon 2


I am Kendra Vernon, a musician and teacher looking to nurture musical creativity in people of all ages. My goal is to help students develop their musical abilities by helping them learn how to ask questions and think objectively about their practice and performing habits. I believe that great teachers teach students to teach themselves!

Since 2002, working with students to gain confidence and prowess in music has been a passion of mine. In addition to teaching, I perform regularly with the Redwood Tango Ensemble. I also work as a studio musician, recording on soundtracks for various independent films.

After graduating cum laude from Duquesne University’s Mary Pappert School of Music and the Duquesne Honors’ College with a degree in Violin Performance, my life took me out to California where I continue to teach and perform in various settings.
