    Portland, Oregon native, Sophie Spreier is a Certified Suzuki Instructor and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Performance from Utah State University. Raised by a highly dedicated mother, she started her cello studies by the Suzuki Method at age three and has been playing music ever since. Through her studies, Sophie developed a passion for cello performance and collaboration, and has played for masters including Yo Yo Ma, Eleanor Schoenfeld, Laurence Lesser, and Arnold Steinhardt among others. Sophie’s performing activities have also taken her to audiences in various parts of the United States, Mexico, Canada, and Spain.

    With her enthusiasm for intimate, small-setting concerts, Sophie has curated multiple outreach projects including the Hindemith Cafe Tour and the Speakeasy Concert Series in Logan, Utah. She is a strong believer in the power of music making beautiful individuals and hopes to cultivate a love for string music in her students by encouraging creativity and artistic collaboration. 

    Sophie currently hails from Pocatello, Idaho where she teaches a Suzuki studio of 24 cello students and commutes to Utah State University.
