SonnLeit Violin Studio offers private violin lessons and solo violin music for weddings from violinist Theresa Sonnleitner.

Prior to moving to West Des Moines, Theresa earned a BM in violin performance from the University of Iowa and taught violin lessons in Williamsburg for three years. After moving to Des Moines, Theresa has been teaching violin students and group classes in Earlham.  Besides teaching group classes, Theresa has coached chamber groups in Ames and Iowa City.

Theresa started playing violin at the age of 4 with Paul Manulik at the then newly opened Cedar Rapids Symphony School.  At age 10, Theresa began studying with Doris Preucil, founder of the Preucil School of Music in Iowa City, Iowa.  That year, Theresa traveled to South Korea to attend the Suzuki National Convention as a soloist and as a part of the Preucil School's Gansdorf Quartet.  Besides South Korea, Theresa has performed around the world, traveling to England, Germany, Austria, and Italy, soloed at the Suzuki National Convention in Japan and played for Shinichi Suzuki in his home.  She also attended many music camps in the States. Recently, Theresa traveled to China where China's First Lady attended one of the orchestra's concerts.  

In Iowa, Theresa soloed with the Cedar Rapids Symphony (now Orchestra Iowa) multiple times and soloed with the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Symphony Orchestra.  She was also a member of the Cedar Rapids Symphony.
