Emily Schaad
Emily has been playing and teaching music for nearly her whole life. With a background in classical music and public school music education, she first came to North Carolina to learn from well-known fiddle masters, and to earn an MA in Appalachian studies. She is known for a complex and powerful fiddling style, and has taken first place in numerous stringband and fiddle contests, including the Appalachian String Band Festival in Clifftop, West Virginia. Emily currently conducts youth orchestras in North and South Carolina, teaches fiddle and violin, and is working toward a doctorate in music education.
