Hi, LOVELY STRING PERSON!
SuperStrings Studio encourages and uplifts string music teachers all over the world, with students and string specialists from countries around the globe as part our growing community.
We know the intrinsic value of what we provide in our work but in reality sometimes it can be ridiculously challenging, and there may even be times when we consider giving it up to do something else for a living.
On the other hand there are so many incredible people teaching, giving selflessly, working diligently and making it better for our string students and for each other. Heck, string teachers act like superheroes making the whole world a better place to be!
SuperStrings Studio connects the dots, supporting thriving string teachers, players and students! We believe we have good reason to be proud of our work and our accomplishments. And we are creating an enduring future for the next generation. Together we can go beyond our limitations, learn how to maximize our time, celebrate our milestones and achieve so much more!
If you’re a string teacher, how about a free checklist to use with students or for yourself to see whether you should rehair your bow? All you need to do is let me know where to send it, and you can find out more about the Royal String Teacher Association.

Are you a teacher with another main instrument and would like to hone your skills on violin, viola or guitar? I’m your gal. I love helping other teachers improve!
Why learn to play the violin? Or another stringed instrument?
Learning an instrument is a massively great use of time which requires daily attention. But what you reap in rewards are values which truly enrich our lives, things like discipline, delayed gratification, patience, kindness, self-awareness, coordination, fun, respect, accomplishment, culture, aesthetics, musical expression and self-confidence to name a few!
One of the most important benefits of becoming a competent musician is the ability to learn to listen carefully, a skill which we urgently need more of today.
Wait a sec. That was really important.
One of the most important benefits of learning to play an instrument well is learning the ability to LISTEN well, a skill which is important to becoming HUMAN.
SuperStrings Studio was created in 2017 by Bonny Buckley. After several years playing professionally and teaching strings in the USA, China and Germany, it dawned on her, that like both her mother and father, she was a self-employed entrepreneur.
From that moment she decided to focus on being an advocate for string music teachers, supporting them as much as possible whilst teaching private students.
SuperStrings Studio is a member of ESTA, the European String Association in Germany and the UK.
SuperStrings Studio is a past member of the String Industry Council of the American String Teachers Association.
Bonny holds a Bachelor of Music with Honors in Violin Performance from Emerson College, Diploma in Violin from the Longy School of Music and Professional Teacher License from the State of Washington in the US. She has grown string programs in the USA, China and Germany, now working from Suzhou, China.
