Du Anne Spencer Hamby is the manager of StringMusic.net and has performed in string quartets and string ensembles for over twenty-five years.
A former member of the San Antonio Symphony, she directed the YOSA Summer Symphony Camp for more than 14 years and until recently was a strings teacher with Alamo Heights Independent School District.
Du Anne attended the New School of Music in Philadelphia where she studied with Max Aronoff. (In 1986 New School merged with Temple University's College of Music to form its Department of Instrumental Studies.) She is also a graduate of Cairn University with degrees in music and theology.
Du Anne regularly performs for audiences ranging from small private parties to large public gatherings. The largest setting was for Luciano Pavarotti during his final American tour. The smallest was for a marriage proposal with only the couple and a string duo present (yes, the girl accepted!).
Du Anne and her husband, Robert, have three grown children: Mary Alice, Jesse, and Stephen.
