Becky Chaffee

I was raised in a musical family (my brother is a composer/musician in Berlin), I raised 2 "Suzuki" children on violin and piano, and I play flute, and learned beginning violin with my daughter when she was young. I have degrees in engineering from UC Berkeley and Cornell University. I am from Calif. and live now in TN.

I have written and illustrated 2 books to encourage music practice available on Amazon and my website. "Have Fun With Your Music" for young musicians and "Passion For Practice with Musings From Music Masters" for all ages.

I make violin/cello/bass purses or bags which are fun to use as purses, but also are used as string player gig bags. The back pocket fits the largest size cello string pack, the inside can fit a small metronome/tuner, a shoulder rest, rosin, eye glasses, cell... and comes with a small leather wallet. I have also created Piano bags and guitar bags. There are many more creative whimsical products at (Including whimsical music themed greeting cards with practice tips on the back.) holds an annual youth composition competition.
