About The Creator

Annie Savage has been committed to music for all and music for life for the entirety of her three decade career. A renown contest fiddler from childhood and a trained concert harpist, Savage has shared with stage with artists from Aretha Franklin to John Williams to Ricky Skaggs. She teaches with one foot in the classroom and the other in the music industry.

Annie’s studies have taken her from the concert halls of the Interlochen Arts Academy to the studios of the Berklee College of Music. She is currently a PhD candidate researching and writing curriculum at the nexus of cultural relevance, creativity, and the skill set required by the current music industry.


We are dedicated to providing the educator with the support and direction needed to teach Free-Strings in the classroom. We understand the need for teaching improvisation can be daunting to even the most skilled teacher and student. Do not shy from reaching out for any help along the way! 

It's easy to use this method to meet the national standard of creating music in daily lessons, as online lessons and sub plans, or even to create your own Free Strings ensemble. Looking for support to help you get started? Reach out to Annie at any time for help and support with the Free Strings Method.
