Darcy Noonan is a native of the San Francisco Bay Area. She started her music career at the age of 6, studying the Suzuki method with Annemarie Sudermann. Shortly after, she began studying Irish dancing with Anne Healy at the Healy School of Irish dancing. It was not obvious then, but these would become life changing experiences.
As a young adult, Darcy realized her technical ability and knowledge of Irish music were a unique combination which propelled her to her true calling as a fiddler. Darcy has been fiddling up a storm ever since. Her music has moved her to Ireland to study with the masters of Irish music and taken her all over the world to play gigs and meet new friends.
Darcy's music career came full circle when she studied Suzuki Method pedagogy with world renowned Suzuki violin teacher David Strom. The Suzuki student has become the Suzuki teacher. Now she is equipt with even more tools to teach her students, both fiddle and classical alike.
Darcy has had the honor of being an instructor many times at music camps such as the Freight and Salvage's Fiddlekids, Golden Toad Camp, Lark in the Morning Camp, and apprentice at Fiddle Tunes.
Darcy maintains a lively music studio in Oakland, CA, where she teaches both classical and fiddle music to all ages of students and shares her music at events.
