Doris Preucil

Doris Preucil’s love for chamber music began as a young child when she

was immersed in a musical home life, playing simple duets with her father

and soon conquering Haydn string quartets as a teen. This initial exposure

influenced her to raise her own children in a similar manner, sharing such

musical passion with William Jr, Walter, Anne, Jeanne, and now nine


Seeing the value of chamber music, she worked tirelessly to establish a

comprehensive chamber music program at the Preucil School of Music

(Iowa).  The curriculum began with one quartet and now serves over

eighty students. Through Doris’ vision, students experience not only the

joy of chamber music, but also gain important life skills of collaboration

and negotiation.

In addition to her chamber work, Doris is a well-known violin and viola

pedagogue in the Suzuki method of instruction. Her leadership skills have

shaped the development of the Suzuki Association of the Americas,

International Suzuki Association, ACMP, and influenced standards of

excellence in the National Guild of Community Schools. Doris’ active

teaching career spans over sixty years and has resulted in award-winning

students, professional musicians, and lovers of music in general. Doris

and her husband William Sr, continue to champion the power of chamber

music through community performances proclaiming, “Work to be the best

you can be. Respect the abilities of others. Believe in yourself. Be grateful

to be able to share the transcendental beauty of music with others.”
