Dallas native and violinist Ella Loman is both a deeply passionate performer and a highly enthusiastic educator. An eager learner from the start, Ella began her studies at the age of four after her parents could no longer ignore her persistent desire to play violin and decided to put her in violin lessons. By the age of seven Ella knew she wanted to be a professional musician, eventually leading her to pursue both her Bachelor’s of Music in Violin Performance and Performer’s Diploma in Orchestral Studies from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music where she studied with the world-renowned violinist and current Concertmaster of the Dallas Symphony, Alexander Kerr.
During her time at IU, Ella served as Concertmaster and Principal in various ensembles, was a member of the IU Chamber Orchestra for their 2015 South Korean Tour, and studied String and Violin Pedagogy with Dr. Brenda Brenner and Mimi Zweig. Ella has performed with many Orchestras and made her debut as a soloist with the National Repertory Orchestra in 2019 where she was also chosen as one of the Concertmaster Fellows.
Although performance has been a significant part of her career, Ella’s passion for teaching allows her to share the joy of music and inspire the next generation of young students. A firm believer in individualized learning, Ella approaches ever student with a creative and open mindset. “Every student learns differently. My job as a teacher is to identify those unique qualities and help each student unlock their full potential as a violinist and as an individual”
