Ruth Mudge, a former native of Connecticut, is a cello instructor and performer in the Western Suburbs of the Chicago area. She grew up playing both the piano and cello in a musical household. The love and knowledge she received in that home and teachers she loves to share with others, whether through teaching a new generation of musicians to sharing her musical gifts to her community.
Ruth began teaching Soundtrack classes on Zoom in 2020 ranging from Star Wars to Harry Potter to Jane Austen adaptations. She presented a break-out session "The World of Jane Austen Soundtracks" at JASNA's AGM in 2021 as well as to local chapters around the country. She has also collaborated with YouTube channel "Jorah the Andal" on several videos focused on the TV show "Arrow."
