Program Director, Master Violin Teacher
“Kids need music," Fruchter tells The Hollywood Reporter on a recent visit to the classroom he has called home for nearly five decades. "It’s a formula that helps students learn -- self discipline, team work, translating symbols, which helps with math and science, and self-esteem.” Fruchter would know. Before coming aboard at the music school, he played violin throughout high school and continued on to Cal State L.A., where he later taught sound recording and engineering as a professor. Eventually, a director from NMS called Cal State L.A. looking for a violin teacher, and Fruchter accepted.
