About Riley Mantonya
Riley has been playing the piano since the first grade, and the violin since the second grade. She has been teaching private music lessons since I was 14 years old and have been involved in several community choirs and orchestras. While still in middle school, she served as first violin in the pit orchestra of Live Oak’s Fiddler on the Roof. Riley was, literally, the sound of “the fiddler.”
She received her bachelor's degree in music performance/education from Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City, OK in 2020. I will be teaching violin and piano, yes, along with group chorale class (I believe Randi was wanting to also do a JR. Chorale, but I need to check with her on that), and also a group music theory class. I participated in Nature Coast Chorale in middle school into high school, then later, with the choir at Heartland Baptist Bible College, the Hernando Symphony Orchestra, and the orchestra at Southwest Baptist Church in OK.
