Hutchison finished her Doctorate at the University of Arizona, after attending colleges in Florida and Minnesota. She currently teaches violin, viola and string techniques to private students and at Cochise College.

Hutchison loves working with the students of the Cochise County Youth Orchestra. “Playing in a Youth Symphony was the highlight of my week while growing up. It challenged and broadened me musically, intellectually and socially. I am the musician I am today because of my experiences playing in the Minnesota Youth Symphony. I enjoy following in my director’s footsteps and bringing this experience to a whole new generation of young musicians.”
