Juliet Dawson (Violin, Viola)
Teaches private lessons on Mondays and Tuesdays

Juliet is a Chicago-based violist/violinist who has been passionate about string music ever since she was tricked into playing the viola at age 11.  Since then, she has received her BM in viola performance from the University of Michigan and her MM from the Hartt School of Music.

As a chamber musician, she has performed as part of Hartt's prestigious chamber program Performance 2020, along with colleagues and professors from both U of M and the Hartt. Currently, she performs with the Living Room Players, a diverse collection of professional musicians in the Chicago area. As a soloist, Juliet debuted with the Toledo Symphony Orchestra in 2007.  Since then she has appeared in scholarship showcases as well as faculty concerts.  More recently she performed with the Hartt Symphony Orchestra as a winner of the 2012 Paranov Concerto Competition, performing the first viola concerto in over a decade of the competition's history. 

She has acted as principal and section viola of her scholastic orchestras, as well as regional, baroque, and opera orchestras in Michigan, Connecticut, and Illinois.  Before beginning at Music Makers, she has acted as a private instructor for both violin and viola for the last ten years.
