Kevin Nordstrom, D.M.A.
Adjunct Instructor, Applied viola
Faculty String Quartet, Viola
Dr. Kevin Nordstrom leads a busy career as performer, teacher, and scholar. He has performed solo concerts in Canada, Italy, Austria, and China, and has given numerous solo recitals throughout the United States. These performances include recitals at Wright State University, Earlham College, Miami University, The University of Florida, and Ball State University, as well as lecture recitals at the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and the Xi'an University of Arts and Science in Xi'an, China. In Spring 2018, Dr. Nordstrom was awarded a Bronze Medal at the Global Music Awards for his performance of Joan Tower's Wild Purple for solo viola, presented at Wright State University's Schuster Recial Hall.
An active member of the College Music Society, Dr. Nordstrom has given presentations and performances of viola works by György Ligeti, Charles Koechlin, and Marion Bauer at several of their regional conferences in the United States and Canada. In late 2017, his article on the Ligeti Sonata was published in the Journal of the American Viola Society under the title "Transformation and Distortion - The Process of Variation in Ligeti's Sonata for Viola Solo".
In addition to his scholarly work, Dr. Nordstrom is active in promoting and advancing discourse on string music education. He has presented several clinics for the Texas and Ohio Music Educators Association at their professional development conferences in collaboration with his colleague and brother, Dr. Stephen Nordstrom. These clinics focused on developing exercises for the violin and viola, as well as detailed lesson plans for the private lesson teacher. An active proponent of viola ensemble playing, Dr. Nordstrom directs the Wright State University Viola Choir. For this ensemble, he has produced several arrangements of music by Bizet, Verdi, and Tchaikovsky. In early 2018, his viola quartet arrangement of Bizet’s Carmen: Concert Suite No. 1 was published by Latham Music in collaboration with Ludwig Masters Publications. Dr. Nordstrom’s other activities include ongoing service as an Ensemble Database Editor for the American Viola Society, and on the editorial committee for the American String Teacher Journal, published by the American String Teachers Association. He is also the writer/producer of The Great Composers Podcast, found on iTunes and on the web.
Dr. Nordstrom is currently the Adjunct Instructor of Applied Viola at Wright State University and teaches courses in orchestral string methods and non-western music appreciation. He also serves as the Adjunct Professor of Applied Violin and Viola at Earlham College and Indiana University East in Richmond, Indiana. Dr. Nordstrom holds a Bachelor of Music degree from The University of North Texas, and the degrees of Master of Music, Artist Diploma and Doctor of Musical Arts from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. His teachers have included Dr. Catharine Carroll, Masao Kawasaki, Dr. Susan Dubois, and Dr. Kathryn Steely.
As an orchestral performer, he was awarded fellowships to the Aspen Music Festival in 2012 and 2013, was a fellowship recipient at the CCM Spoleto Festival in Spoleto, Italy 2011, received a full scholarship to the Music Academy of the West in 2009, and was awarded substantial scholarships to the Manchester Music Festival 2007 and the Green Mountain Chamber Music Festival 2006 and 2008. He has been awarded high honors at many international solo competitions as well, including 2nd prize at the Lima Symphony Young Artist Competition 2012, The Cincinnati Conservatory annual concerto competition 2011, and the Hubbard Solo Contest 2007. He was also a semi-finalist in the Sorantin Competition 2011, and recognized as the top violist at the 2009 Crescendo Music Awards.
Furthering his work as an orchestral musician, he has been fortunate to have served as principal violist of festival orchestras in Italy as well as at the Music Academy of the West, and was the acting principal violist for the Debut Orchestra in Los Angeles for their 2009-2010 season. He also served as assistant principal viola in the Richmond Indiana Symphony from 2012-2017, and has been a guest principal with the Lebanon Symphony as well as guest assistant principal with the Middletown Symphony Orchestra. In addition to teaching and performing on the viola, Dr. Nordstrom enjoys studies in musicology, composing, arranging, and writing about music. His non-musical life often sees him reading volumes on American and ancient history, and spending time with his wife and daughter.

In my role as a university viola instructor, I am responsible for students with diverse musical backgrounds who share a desire to pursue an education in music and apply it to their lives and careers. My aim as a studio and classroom teacher is to foster a supportive environment where learning is the primary objective of all students as well as myself. I continually seek new ways to communicate and engage with my students so that they learn and grow as people and musicians. I also lead by example, performing recitals and engaging in scholarship so that students can better understand my teaching through my work. By tailoring lesson objectives to each individual, and implementing group activities such as studio classes and a viola choir, I develop students into independent, self-motivated, and confident musicians, who work well with others and will thrive as professionals after graduation.
In lessons, I approach each student as an individual and in a manner which does not suppress their personal characteristics. The most effective way to improve skills is through the study of a wide variety of repertoire, ranging from concertos by Stamitz, Walton, and Bartok to sonatas by Vieuxtemps, Brahms, and Hindemith. Additionally, at every lesson my students are expected to play scales and technical exercises, as well as etudes by Kreutzer, Rode, and Lillian Fuchs among others. While studying this material, students begin to discover how their hands work and what the best way to execute technical challenges is. Even while using the same instructional material across an entire studio, a flexible and imaginative teacher can take into consideration a variety of different learning styles, and formulate new methods that are appropriate to each student in their care. For example, a student preparing for a concerto competition needs a different lesson framework than one getting ready for an orchestra audition. This is the basis for my upcoming OMEA clinic, “Structuring Lesson Plans for a Better Practice Routine,” which focuses on tailoring lesson plans to each student’s learning style and performance needs, providing them with a consistent framework to follow at home.
Weekly studio classes are an integral part of my university teaching. They often take the form of a group lesson, where students perform their current repertoire as well as etudes. Listening activities play an important role in the class as well. For example, I will ask a student to bring to class a recording of a viola work that they enjoy, which they will then describe and everyone will listen to. Often times students will bring recordings of pieces from outside the standard repertoire, which helps to broaden their appreciation for what is available for our instrument.
While playing in the viola choir, students collaborate with one another and establish themselves in leadership roles different from those in traditional chamber music and orchestral settings. Older students have the responsibility of running rehearsals and leading performances. They also serve as mentors to younger students, helping them grow as musicians within a collegial environment. This cooperative effort keeps my students driven both individually and collectively as they strive toward a common goal. Playing in the viola choir is not only a fun activity, but it provides students with additional avenues for performance and personal expression. The experience gained in the viola choir enhances what they learn during lessons, and increases their confidence as performers in a way that will be valuable throughout their careers.

And I, lying on my side, put my free hand and began to caress the responsive chest of my charm, and she turned her beautiful head. Framed by a mane of fluffy hair, and our lips met. And as soon as our lips parted, Tanechka again began to moan sweetly - it looks like she likes it and she was pleased that I was fucking her in the ass with my impudent finger.
Suddenly squealed Laura. What are you. Im not doing anything yet, Ivan Ivanovich chuckled. and suddenly, with a strong movement, he planted her on himself.Nordstrom Essentials *My Top 10 Staples* - Nordstrom Try On Haul - Nordstrom Gift Ideas
She was lonely and already began to forget how it was, to feel someone in herself. Every day more and more big stores are replacing it. Although she owned this shop, she was now unable to hire a salesperson. The lonely woman became more and more apathetic every day.
Even in the morning, did she think that she would have sex with the first person she met.
