Building community through music since 1983!

Martha Herrle

Martha received her B. Mus. Ed degree from Hartt College of Music, studying both violin and viola. She spent the following year studying string quartet literature at the University of Connecticut with the Laurel String Quartet. She is the founder of Goodwin Strings, a before-school group violin instructional program for 2nd and 3rd graders at Goodwin Elementary School in Old Saybrook. She also presents our weekly music program for the collaborative preschool students at Essex Elementary School, teaches Kindermusik, and is the Director of Kate’s Camp for Kids. Martha is the founder and conductor of CMS First Time Fiddlers and CMS String Ensemble orchestra, two groups that bring her immeasurable joy as a frustrated conductor, and the Chamber Connections program.

Martha teaches Monday – Friday.
