Ms. Tara Cesario is the Director of Orchestras at Highland Park High School. Born and raised in Chicago, Ms. Cesario moved to Fort Worth in 2007 to pursue her musical studies on viola at Texas Christian University, graduating with her Bachelor of Music Education and Master of Education degrees in 2011 and 2012, respectively. For the past 5 years, she was the Associate Orchestra Director at Plano Senior High School. Ms. Cesario continues to teach private viola and violin lessons, is an active member of Region 20 and the Texas Music Educators Association, and performs around Dallas as the fiddle player for a local country cover band.
"My goal as a music teacher is to create independent musicians and advocates of music education in hopes that students realize the importance of fine arts in schools, continue to keep music in their lives, and support fine arts programs post graduation in whatever ways they can."
