It is the mission of String Presence to use the universal language of music to touch, heal and nurture humanity. The belief that the environment shapes the being insists that constants of love, compassion, patience, respect, consideration and giving are a must for a life full of purpose, enrichment and abundance. This mission is not only aligned with the philosophy of Shinichi Suzuki, but the Creator and Most High.
String Presence is committed to perpetuating these values in the community through two primary avenues: Education and nurturing of the whole family through the Suzuki Violin School using Dr. Suzuki's Mother Tongue approach, and through service by providing music that touches the spirit during any occasion, event, or function where humanity can all be on common ground.

YOU MADE SUCH A DIFFERENCE in our LIVES! Seriously! You’re an incredible teacher Ms. Megan! It’s truly a GIFT! If only we could bring you along with us wherever the military moves us!! We were blessed to have you as our teacher… and even more blessed that we remain friends throughout the years!
Each time Kennedy plays her violin, I see the zeal and pride in her eyes. Her love of the instrument and her desire to excel are reflections of a remarkable, gifted instructor. We are truly blessed to have you in our lives.
