Biography

Ann Lobotzke’s career as a performing artist serves as a role model for her students.  Active as an orchestral musician, recitalist, teacher, and freelance musician Ms. Lobotzke delights in sharing her wealth of experience with her students.  She values and teaches musicality, technique, and playing in a natural and ergonomically correct way.  Ms. Lobotzke believes that to have longevity in the musical field one must be not only a fine musician, but an entrepreneur as well.  In addition to having private lessons, students are also taught business practices, and given tools and resources that will enable them to succeed in their careers.
