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 over 14 years and is currently a strings teacher in the Alamo Heights Independent School District.
Du Anne attended the New School of Music in Philadelphia (now the New School Institute at Temple University's College of Music). At New School she was privileged to study with Max Aronoff of the Curtis Institute of Music.
Du Anne graduated from Cairn University with degrees in music and theology. She 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.
