Recently she has she has taken on a few viola and cellos students, and she maintains a studio of over 20 students ranging in age from 4 to moms. Her students, known collectively as the Suzuki Magic Bows, perform regularly in the Prescott area.
Barbara has a B.S. in Music Education from Potsdam N.Y. and a Masters in Humanities from Hofstra on Long Island.

According to a friend of hers, Barbara loves her Suzuki program so much because she needs other children to play with.
