Adora Wong

Strings Instructor

New to the Okanagan, Adora Wong is a violinist, music teacher, and educator. Adora has over 5 years of experience in classroom teaching and over 10 years in studio teaching. She was inspired by her years serving as a Violin and Viola Teaching Artist with Sistema New Brunswick, a social-development music program that aims to inspire children and youth to reach their full potential through learning and performing orchestral music. Adora is always looking for innovative ways to inspire learning and is currently pursuing her Early Childhood Education Certification through the University of British Columbia with a focus on accessible education. 

 

As a performer, Adora held the position of Principal 2nd Violin in the Thunder Bay Symphony Orchestra for the 2019-2021 seasons and has played with the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra, Symphony New Brunswick, the National Arts Centre Orchestra, the National Academy Orchestra, and the Ottawa Symphony Orchestra. She has represented Canada on tour with Orchestra of the Americas, Orchestre Francophonie, and the National Youth Orchestra.

 

Adora believes that quality music education must be accessible to all and works actively to remove barriers. Adora offers private and group lessons, working mostly with beginners using a combination of the Kodaly, Dalcroze, and Suzuki methods. While her focus is on child development and self-esteem, her students have won gold medals in regional and provincial competitions and completed McGill Conservatory examinations.

 

Adora holds a Master of Music in Violin Performance from the University of Ottawa, a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance from McGill University, and an Early Childhood Assistant Educator certificate from the University of British Columbia and ECEBC.
